Championship battle heads to Misano

Two new venues on the bounce with two very different styles as Formula E swaps the cherry blossom from Tokyo's streets to the purpose-built circuit on Italy's Adriatic coast and the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.

With that, we're going to get a very different flavour of racing, with the return of the peloton style. The nature of this circuit is fast and flowing with plenty of overtaking spots, and with that, the drivers won't want to give away any energy advantage to their rivals. Expect long slipstreaming trains as the field attempts to conserve energy, ready for an all-out dash to the flag in the closing stages.

For the win

The Streak reigned supreme in Season 5 with eight different winners crowned in eight races, there are whispers that this run is back as we head to Rounds 6 and 7 off the back of five winners in the last five races. It's all still to play for as we reach the meaty part of the season.

The grid is right to the brim with possible race winners, but there are a few in-form drivers at the moment. The first is Nissan's Oliver Rowland, the Brit is currently on a podium run and his pace is rising with each race. He narrowly missed out on the victory in their home race but is looking stronger each time he hits the asphalt.

The driver that pipped the Nissan driver to victory was Maximilian Guenther, who made history with the first win on the streets of Tokyo, Japan. It's a home race for the Maserati MSG squad, and Guenther is looking comfortable for the House of Trident as he arrives in Italy as one of only two drivers to have scored points in every race this season.

The German had the speed and patience in São Paulo, coming through from last to score points by mastering the peloton, and he was patient last time out in Tokyo leaving his second ATTACK MODE activation to the end and creating the buffer to hold off Rowland to the flag.

Guenther didn't put a foot wrong all weekend, his only slip-up was quite literally on the podium when he lost grip on the spray from the Taittinger, can he go back-to-back and end the streak at five?

The other driver with points-scoring consistency in Season 10 is championship leader Pascal Wehrlein. The TAG Heuer Porsche driver has been amongst the front-runners since winning the opening round in Mexico City and is the only driver to score two pole positions this season. The German has experience racing in Misano before, back in 2018.

Podium potentials

What advantage will there be to racing here before? Nearly half the grid has raced here before with a few having experienced racing here in multiple disciplines.

Reigning champion Jake Dennis (Andretti) and Envision Racing's Robin Frijns took part in both the DTM and GT World Challenge visits to Misano, and racing in different cars could give them decent mental data on how to perform at this track. Frijns in particular knows what it's like to get on the podium here in Misano and will be looking to repeat that feat in Formula E.

However, there is a driver who has tasted success in Misano and he could be a wildcard bet for the weekend. Nico Mueller the 2019 DTM race in Misano and has been on somewhat of an upward trajectory recently.


The Swiss driver had a season-best finish of seventh in Tokyo after a second successive visit to the Duels. The energy management here could play into his hands with sitting in the wings until the final moments, and that winning track knowledge could be just the trick to see the ABT CUPRA driver back on the podium again.

One lap pace

Misano will be another track position at the start and might not play as crucial role as say, Tokyo, but this season we've seen some thrilling Duels with some surprise faces getting right in the mix.

Mahindra Racing's scope for Season 10 is emblazoned on their car with the slogan 'Together we rise' and that has been evident with their continued progress from race to race.

Edoardo Mortara made it two visits in a row to the Duels in Tokyo and started from the second row, with a stunning launch of the line seeing him run in the front pack for the duration of the race - but denied their first points of the season after being disqualified for exceeding the energy limit.

It's also a home race for the Swiss-Italian, so will be looking to carry that speed into Misano and will be another driver tapping into his DTM experience at this track.

There's a chance for more surprises in Misano, ERT's Sergio Sette Camara has taken out some big names in the Duels this season and is currently sitting on a 50% win rate. His teammate Dan Ticktum is another one to watch for a flying lap, the British driver has yet to make it out of the group stages in Season 10 but like a few others he has been here before in his F3 days.
