FACTS AND STATS: A finale of firsts in London

At the Hankook London E-Prix, the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship crowned new Drivers' and Teams' World Champions - the first of the GEN3 era and a stunning, attritional and hotly-contested Season 9. Here's the finale weekend in numbers.

Jake Dennis celebrates Formula E title in London for Andretti

- Jake Dennis is the first British Formula E World Champion, as well as the first to claim the title on home soil

- Dennis' 11 podiums from 16 rounds is a new record. Outgoing champion Stoffel Vandoorne managed a previous high of eight on his way to the Season 8 title

- With Envision Racing claiming their first Teams’ title, Season 9 was the first in which the same team didn’t win both titles since Season 4

- With his win in Round 16, Mitch Evans became the fifth driver – alongside Buemi, di Grassi, Bird and Vergne - to reach 10 wins in Formula E. Evans is the only one to have claimed them all for the same team


- Sebastien Buemi is the first driver to have won the Teams’ title with two different teams, with Renault e.dams having won in each of the first three seasons

- In Round 15, Jaguar TCS Racing scored 40 points in a single race for only the third time. London marked its most successful double-header (64 points total). The team’s now surpassed 1,000 points from 94 races

- After Round 15, the top two in the Teams’ standings were tied on points. The only other instance was Sanya, Season 5 where the top four were split by just two points

- Sebastien Buemi claimed a first podium since Season 6. Only Robin Frijns and Antonio Felix da Costa have had to wait more than two seasons between silverware

- Lucas di Grassi gained 14 positions in Round 15 (seeing the Brazilian win the ABB Driver of Progress Award). He’s gained 10 places or more in races across every season except 2015/16. The last race in which di Grassi managed the feat was the corresponding London race in 2022/23

- With Nick Cassidy and Jean-Eric Vergne failing to finish Round 15, no driver managed to complete every racing lap in Season 9 (which is the first season in which no driver has done so since Season 5)

- Nine of the 10 drivers who qualified in the top 10 for Race 1 also qualified in the top 10 for Race 2, with Nico Mueller replacing Rene Rast in the top positions


- The top 10 drivers on the grid then all finished in the top 10, which is only the second time that this has happened in Formula E (Berlin Race 2, Season 8)

- Race 2 in Berlin last season was also the previous race in which all 22 drivers finished the race, after all 22 drivers finished Race 2 in London

- Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy shared the front row for the first time in Formula E, marking the first time two drivers from New Zealand have started at the front of the grid together. The only other nations to have had two drivers share the front row are French and British drivers

- Nick Cassidy’s winning margin in London (4.934 seconds) was more than double the combined winning margin of his other four wins (2.249 seconds)

- Due to the multiple Red Flags across the recent races, the last four E-Prix have taken an average of 1hr32m278s. The first 12 races of the season only lasted an average of 49m04s


-  Jake Dennis claimed the TAG Heuer Fastest Lap for Round 16, his fifth fastest lap of the season - equalling Sebastien Buemi’s Season 2 record

- Seven of the last nine races had at least two of Jake Dennis, Nick Cassidy or Mitch Evans on the podium. They collectively took more than 45% of the points in the last nine races

- Evans faced 14 different drivers during his 12 Duels appearances in Season 9, beating 11 of them at least once

- Race 2 in London marked ABT’s 100th race. With Nico Mueller’s eighth-placed finish, the team surpassed 1,400 Formula E points

- Season 9 had an overall finishing rate of 81.0% - the third most attritional of our nine seasons

- Formula E surpassed 300 Safety Car laps in London, which accounts for 7.5% of all laps across the nine Formula E seasons
