Misano 'will provide lots of overtaking' say Andretti Formula E Team

Andretti drivers Jake Dennis and Norman Nato preview the upcoming Misano E-Prix double-header.


Formula E makes its first visit to the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli this weekend, for not one but two races. The events, which will mark Rounds 6 and 7 on the Season 10 calendar, will be a different challenge for the grid to what they have experienced so far this year. Over the 14 turns, the 3.38km circuit is a big step away from the traditional street tracks Formula E fans might know, but is set to bring a lot of entertainment and some excellent racing.

It also marks the start of the European rounds this season, with the all-electric championship previously racing in Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Brazil and Japan so far. 

"I raced in Misano back in 2019, and I think it's a circuit that will provide lots of overtaking which is always good for us because of the efficiency of the powertrain," reigning World Champion Jake Dennis said about the new circuit addition. "I'm hoping that we can have two very good days of racing and continue to close in on the team’s championship standings. We’ll keep aiming for those double point finishes like we had in Japan and hopefully leave Misano with a good haul of points."

NEWS: What does the Misano E-Prix circuit look like?

Dennis sits fourth in the Drivers' World Championship after Tokyo, picking up a third place podium. He is also one of eight drivers that have raced here before, with names like Maserati MSG Racing's Jehan Daruvala, ABT CUPRA's Nico Mueller and TAG Heuer Porsche's Pascal Wehrlein all having knowledge of this track in other catergories. 


"After a strong team effort in Japan, we want to keep the positive momentum and score good points in Misano," teammate Nato added. "A double-header at a new track on the calendar always provides plenty of opportunity for a strong weekend. We’ll keep improving on what we’ve learned from Tokyo and push for even more."

For Andretti team boss Roger Griffiths also added his take on how he thinks Misano will play out, with a heavy emphasis on energy management being key.

"For the second time this season, another brand-new track awaits the Andretti Formula E team. Misano, normally home to MotoGP, has been specifically configured for the Formula E cars and presents a challenging series of 14 corners over 3.38kms. It will be a very different venue compared to the streets of Rome.

Schedule and race start times for the 2024 Misano E-Prix

"No longer defined by the tight confines of a street circuit, the much more open track will allow the Formula E cars to ‘stretch their legs’ and demonstrate the high speeds they are capable of. The expectation going into Misano is that it will be a track much more likely to present overtaking opportunities, especially as the likely focus will be on energy management, a strong characteristic of the Porsche Motorsport powertrain."
