Formula E in Monaco: Qualifying groups at a glance
As usual, the Monaco E-Prix will be all about the positions on the starting grid. The order in which the cars will start Saturday's race will be determined by qualifying from 10:40 am CEST. All drivers will first compete in a group stage before the top four from each group will face each other in a knock-out format. As usual, Formula E sorted the groups for the race according to the current World Championship standings.
The drivers on the odd championship positions start in group A, the drivers on the even ranks in group B. In their groups, they fight one after the other for the fastest lap times. The knockout phase for the top four drivers from each batch then takes place "within" the groups: In the quarter-finals, the fastest will race against the fourth-fastest and the second-fastest against the third-fastest in the same group.
For the Monaco E-Prix, the drivers have been sorted into the following groups.
