Formula E held its eighth race of the season at the Circuit de Monaco last weekend. The race in the Principality produced some interesting statistics, milestones and curiosities.

Statistical peculiarities of the Monaco E-Prix

  • Pascal Wehrlein achieved his sixth pole position in Formula E in Monaco, his third of the current season. It was also the sixth pole for Porsche, bringing the team from Weissach level with ABT/Audi.
  • Ahead of that, Wehrlein had made it through to the duels for the seventh time this season. He has already won eleven duels in 2024, more than any other driver.
  • Nick Cassidy reached the duels for the sixth time this season. For the 3rd time, he started from grid position 3, but has not yet made it to the final this season.
  • Stoffel Vandoorne became the first driver since the introduction of qualifying duels in 2022 to reach them for the 25th time.
  • Nyck de Vries drove his 50th Formula E race at the Monaco E-Prix. However, the anniversary did not bring him any luck, as the Dutchman is still waiting for his first championship points this season.
  • Mitch Evans won his eleventh E-Prix in Monaco. He thus drew level with Jean-Eric Vergne. It was also the 14th victory for Jaguar, the same number won by ABT/Audi.
  • It was also Jaguar's second one-two victory in Formula E after the first race at the 2023 Berlin E-Prix, when Evans won ahead of his then team-mate Sam Bird.
  • Stoffel Vandoorne was back on the podium for the first time after 23 races without a trophy, ending by far the longest drought for the 2022 champion. The Belgian also became the eighth driver to break the 500-point mark in the electric series.
  • For the first time since the final race in season 2, both Penske drivers finished in the top four. In London 2016, Jerome d'Ambrosio and Loic Duval finished third and fourth for the team, which was still called Dragon Racing at the time.
  • Taylor Barnard is the youngest Formula E starter of all time. The 19-year-old replaces Matthew Brabham in this statistic. Barnard is also the 83rd driver in the history of the racing series to start a race.
  • Sam Bird missed a race for the fifth time in Formula E history. Previously, only the two races of the 2022 Seoul E-Prix and both the 2023 races in Cape Town and Jakarta had taken place without the Briton.
  • Due to the two safety car phases, the Monaco E-Prix was the longest race of the 2024 season at 58:15 minutes. It was also the longest Monaco E-Prix in the history of the racing series.

Average qualifying position (season)

The best driver in qualifying this season is still Pascal Wehrlein after his third pole position of the season. But Jean-Eric Vergne, Mitch Evans, Max Günther and Nick Cassidy are also doing very well on average.

Average race result (season)

In this statistic, Jake Dennis lost some ground in Monaco and also fell behind Vergne, while Wehrlein is also ahead here.

Position changes (Monaco E-Prix)

With a total of nine positions gained, Norman Nato and Oliver Rowland were the drivers who made the most progress in Monaco. But Taylor Barnard (+8) and Dan Ticktum (+7) also improved significantly in the race. Jehan Daruvala and Edo Mortara (both -10) lost the most ground.

Race laps completed (season)

Furthermore, five drivers have completed all 264 race laps so far this season.

Leading laps (season)

In Monaco, Nick Cassidy, Mitch Evans, Stoffel Vandoorne and Pascal Wehrlein were able to collect lead kilometres. A total of 14 drivers have led at least one lap this season.

Included under "other" are: Antonio Felix da Costa (11), Jean-Eric Vergne (11), Sebastien Buemi (10), Stoffel Vandoorne (9), Robin Frijns, Nico Müller (4 each) and Jake Hughes (3).

Performance analysis of the drivers & teams (Monaco E-Prix)

The winner of our performance analysis for the Monaco E-Prix is Mitch Evans. The New Zealander set the fastest lap of the weekend in the second free practice session (1:29.521 minutes). He was followed by Robin Frijns, Pascal Wehrlein, Nick Cassidy and Antonio Felix da Costa, who all stayed under the 1:30 minute barrier. At the back of the field are Sergio Sette Camara (1:31.188), Lucas di Grassi (1:31.208) and Taylor Barnard (1:31.699).

The fastest team on one lap was Jaguar ahead of Envision. They were followed by Porsche, DS Penske and Maserati. The slowest team was ABT Cupra. Adjusted for the manufacturer ranking, this means Jaguar >>> Porsche >>> Stellantis >>> ERT >>> Nissan >>> Mahindra

Lap time analysis

In the lap time analysis, we only look at the period between the two safety car phases.

It is particularly noticeable that the two Jaguar drivers tactically allowed each other to activate the attack mode without losing position: Evans pulled out a lead and activated attack mode. Nick Cassidy was by far the fastest driver on laps 12 to 15 to also pull out a lead, while Mitch Evans held off the competitors behind him. On the following laps, however, Cassidy was the slowest driver to recoup the energy he had expended and drive home the one-two Jaguar victory.

The race to catch up by Antonio Felix da Costa, who had lost many positions at the start of the race when he got stuck in the Fairmont hairpin, is clearly visible. Also easy to recognise: Jake Dennis had a clear run after his pit stop with a front wing swap, while the Jaguar drivers slowed the field down for their tactical manoeuvres.
