FACTS AND STATS: Grand Slams, home heroes and ever-presents in Berlin

Here's the SUN Minimeal Berlin E-Prix in numbers.

Daniel Abt Berlin Grand Slam

- Berlin is a Formula E ever-present! Race 2 will be our 20th race in the city - almost double the next most visited (Diriyah, 11 races)

- Since last season’s visit to Berlin, current Jaguar teammates Nick Cassidy and Mitch Evans have both scored 198 points. Only Jake Dennis (Andretti) has scored more (238)

- Race 1 of the Season 3 Berlin E-Prix had the closest pole margin in history, with Lucas di Grassi beating Jose Maria Lopez by just 0.001s


- The Season 1 Berlin E-Prix saw Jarno Trulli claim pole aged 40 years and 314 days. He’s still Formula E’s oldest polesitter

- ABT have claimed 10 podiums in Berlin (the only team with 10 podiums in the same city)

- Two of the three closest Formula E wins have come in Berlin: 0.128s in Race 3, Season 6; 0.141s in Race 1, Season 7. The average winning margin in Berlin is just 2.421s

- Daniel Abt claimed the first Formula E Grand Slam (pole, win, fastest lap, led every lap) in Season 4 in Berlin. Antonio Felix da Costa (Season 6, Berlin) and Jake Dennis (Season 8, London and Season 9, Rome) are the only other drivers to achieve a Grand Slam

Season 4, Round 9, Berlin (FULL RACE) - gated

- The Season 10 visit to Berlin will see a new track layout which is 12 metres shorter than last season’s layout but contains five more corners than the previous layout

- Jean-Eric Vergne has claimed four pole positions in Berlin. He's the only driver to have four poles in the same city

- In Season 8, the Semi-Final Duel between Alexander Sims and Jean-Eric Vergne in Berlin resulted in the drivers setting an identical lap time (the only time that this has happened)

- Jean-Eric Vergne and Antonio Felix da Costa have shared the front row four times (more than any other pairing), three of which have come in Berlin

- After Race 4 of the Season 6 Berlin E-Prix, TECHEETAH had a 125-point lead in the Teams' Championship (the largest ever lead for any team)

Season 6, Round 9, Berlin (FULL RACE) - gated

- Across the 18 races in Berlin, there have been seven which have seen a team double podium (including Jaguar TCS Racing in the first race in Berlin last season)

- Last season’s winners came from eighth and ninth on the grid. The polesitter has only won once in the last six races in Berlin

- For the first race of the Season 3 Berlin E-Prix, Jean-Eric Vergne finished in eighth place, which started a 20-race streak of top 10 finishes (the longest streak in Formula E history)

- German drivers have scored in every race since the start of Season 9 (British drivers are the only other nation to do so)

Berlin best moments

- German drivers Nick Heidfeld and Andre Lotterer both share the record for the most podiums without a win (eight)

- Sebastien Buemi has the best qualifying record in Berlin of any driver, having out qualified his teammate 12/18 times

- Sam Bird (Season 7, Race 2) and Max Gunther (Season 9, Race 2) have both gained 15 positions in a single race in Berlin (the most for the German capital)

- Both Lucas di Grassi and Sebastien Buemi have managed to complete every lap of all 18 races in Berlin
