PREVIEW: The Misano E-Prix Rounds 6 & 7

Formula E heads past the one third mark of Season 10 with a first trip to Italy's Adriatic Coast and the Misano World Circuit for a Round 6 & 7 double-header, with the direction of the World Championship title up in the air. Here's everything you need to know.


The second season of the GEN3 era fired into life with three rounds across Mexico City and a Diriyah double-header in Saudi Arabia, a trip to Brazil and São Paulo prior to a memorable first visit to Japan for the Tokyo E-Prix last time around. It's been typically Formula E so far with competition as close as its ever been.

Each round has seen a different race winner and eight different teams represented in the Drivers' standings top 10 - will the streak continue at Misano, as Formula E heads back to Europe for a second new venue in-a-row, the series 35th in total.

There'll be two races in Italy to find out, with the Misano E-Prix Round 6 set to get underway at 15:00 local time on Saturday 13 April and lights out on Round 7 at the same time on Sunday 14 April. Find out where to watch and sync your calendar for all the latest updates and session times.

As it stands...

After four rounds, the milestone 10th season of Formula E is becoming one for the ages. Mexico maestro, Pascal Wehrlein opened up Season 10 with more success in Mexico City, as the TAG Heuer Porsche driver converted a pole start to his fifth victory in Formula E, at the locale of Porsche's first win in the series - secured by the German back in Season 8.

Heading to Round 2 in Diriyah, reigning champion Jake Dennis (Andretti) scored a masterful victory under the lights after perfectly timing an ATTACK MODE overcut to romp away to his sixth win in Formula E by over 13 seconds - registering the second-largest win margin in Formula E history.

Season 10, Round 3, Diriyah (FULL RACE) - gated

Round 3 wouldn't see a repeat of the Diriyah double as Dennis was unable to carry over the previous day's pace, but this opened up the door for Jaguar TCS Racing's Nick Cassidy to swoop in and score a victory at only the third time of asking since moving to the factory team. The New Zealander finds his new surroundings to his liking with a hat-trick of podiums to start Season 10, and a lead in the Drivers' standings.

A return to Brazil for Round 4 and a country steeped in motorsport history, and the second São Paulo E-Prix did not disappoint. After an exciting debut in Season 9, the streets of the Anhembi Sambadrome were awash with even more wheel-to-wheel action with racing right down to the wire.

It was Sam Bird who came out on top following a daring last lap dive for the lead, coming round the outside of Jaguar's Mitch Evans to score NEOM McLaren's first win in Formula E and ending his 37-race winless streak that stretched back to New York City in 2021.

Season 10, Round 4, Sao Paulo (FULL RACE) - gated

A DNF for Drivers' World Championship leader Cassidy saw the gap close up at the top of the standings after São Paulo, and with four different winners in four races - the title fight was still wide open heading into Tokyo.

Another new team and driver took to the top step of the podium on a landmark first visit to Japan for Formula E. With home heroes Nissan giving plenty for the sell-out crowd to cheer, as Oliver Rowland steered to pole then the podium come the race.

Heading to the Japanese capital, Rowland was on a roll after a third-place finish in Sao Paulo and started to pick up the pace after Free Practice 2 in Japan. After finishing the final practice session second fastest, Rowland went on to pinch Julius Baer Pole Position from Maserati MSG Racing's Maximilian Guenther in qualifying, around the 18-turn, 2.582km street circuit.

It was Maserati MSG Racing's Guenther who'd have the last laugh, though - more than encouraging after a strong showing in Brazil to fight back from a penalty, and all with a trip to Italy and home soil next up.

Five winners from five teams, in five races

All the 'fives' arrived in downtown Tokyo as the streak of unpredictability continued as Maserati's Guenther was crowned winner in the Japanese capital. Since the start of the season, we've seen TAG Heuer Porsche's Pascal Wehrlein win in Mexico City, Andretti's Jake Dennis and Jaguar TCS Racing's Nick Cassidy win in Diriyah, NEOM McLaren's Sam Bird take the flag in Sao Paulo and now Maserati's Guenther make it five in five in Tokyo.


That's five different winners, from five different teams in five races. Given the streak so far, there's every chance unpredictability will once again reign supreme.

A new standings leader 

Porsche’s Wehrlein is back leading the Drivers’ World Championship after Tokyo, thanks to a solid drive to finish in fifth at the chequered flag. The German started the year on a high, winning in Mexico City as well as achieving Julius Baer Pole Position to get himself 28 points. However, Cassidy also had a stunning start to his season with Jaguar and took the lead of the standings after his win in Round 3. 

In São Paulo, Cassidy was forced to retire after picking up damage but did his best to bounce back in Japan – a place he knows well from years of racing in the country. Unfortunately for the Kiwi, he was disqualified in qualifying and started 19th on the team's 100th race weekend before climbing up the pack to finish in eighth. 


For Wehrlein, the Porsche driver looked quick but picked up damage when he crashed into the back of Andretti’s Dennis. His teammate, Antonio Felix da Costa, was ahead and went for a move to seal a podium place, but it didn’t stick and so both Porsche drivers were forced to settle for fourth and fifth. 

Where will Formula E race in Italy? A first trip to the Misano World Circuit

Formula E will be racing at a new location once again, this time heading to the famous Misano circuit for some non-stop action over the double-header race weekend. 

For the World Championship's first visit to the Italian track, the circuit will run to 3.381km with 14 turns and clockwise, infield at Turns 1, 2, 3 and 4 before returning to the GP layout down towards what will be Turn 5 and the Turn 7 hairpin. A high-speed straight follows into a sharp left-right at Turns 8 and 9 before another fast sprint around the complex at the back of the circuit before hooking back through Turn 14 onto the home straight.

The Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, or Misano Circuit Sic 58, is located in the Rimini province of Italy and was designed in 1969 before opening in 1972. Since 2007 it's been a fixture on the MotoGP calendar, with local hero and seven-time World Champion, motorcycle racing legend Valentino Rossi, a multiple winner on home soil.

Rookies in the reckoning

The official Season 10 Rookie Test will take place on Monday 13 May after the double-header Rounds 9 & 10 race weekend in Berlin. Some of those race rookies that we saw last year in Berlin and at the prior Rookie Free Practice session in Rome will be back, no doubt, this year and we'll see some new faces altogether come Free Practice 0 on Friday 12 April, ahead of the Misano double-header.

Teams can field someone who's sampled Formula E machinery before but they must not be drivers included on the Season 10 Entry List and they must not have competed in a Formula E race in their career before. The idea is to give the best young talent a pathway to race at the very top of the motorsport ladder with a taste of Formula E and the opportunity to impress prospective teams in the world's leading electric race series.

The choices the teams have put forward to Formula E and the FIA will be revealed in the lead up to Misano, with Envision Racing already signalling that Jack Aitken will once again be in the car after his outings last year and Tim Tramnitz makes a return to the cockpit with ABT CUPRA.

The full entry list will arrive on Wednesday, 10 April.
