Monaco E-Prix Race Review

Nick Cassidy wins in Monaco and takes the Championship lead in the process

Nick Cassidy took his biggest win in Formula E to date as he moves into the lead of the Formula E World Championship. Jaguar’s Mitch Evans finished second ahead of Avalanche Andretti’s Jake Dennis who rounded out the podium.

The Most Notable Moments

Jake Hughes started on Pole and got a good getaway to keep the Nissan’s of Sacha Fenestraz and Norman Nato behind. Oliver Rowland got his elbows out at the start of the race as he went from 13th to 6th after just two laps and just a couple of laps later, it was Nick Cassidy who was making moves as he went round the outside of both Jake Dennis and Pascal Wehrlein at the Fairmont Hairpin. Jake Hughes was the first of the leaders to enter attack mode and he dropped to 5th place as Nick Cassidy climbed all the way up to second place. Oliver Rowland then ran into the back of Edoardo Mortara whilst Jake Dennis was able to overtake Nick Cassidy for 4th place (Cassidy entered attack mode). After the second round of attack modes, Mitch Evans led the race from Nick Cassidy, Jake Dennis and Sacha Fenestraz whilst Jake Hughes was starting to hold cars behind (Hughes was currently 5th). Antonio Felix da Costa was having another really good recovery race, but unfortunately for the Season 6 Champion, a right-rear puncture took him out of the running for points. Dan Ticktum picked up a bit of damage at Rascasse after hitting the back of a Nissan before Ticktum collided with Max Gunther on a run-up to the casino resulting in Gunther retiring from the race and the Safety Car being brought out. The Race got back underway on Lap 23 with Nick Cassidy leading from Mitch Evans, Jake Dennis and Sacha Fenestraz. At this point, everyone was pushing flat out and on the penultimate lap of the race, Sam Bird and Nico Muller collided at Sainte Devote which resulted in the race ending under the Safety Car.

Drivers who Impressed

Nick Cassidy drove another brilliant race after starting 9th and it really doesn’t get much better than winning at Monaco. Taking the Championship lead is also a nice bonus for the Kiwi. Both Mitch Evans and Jake Dennis had really good pace, the latter came from outside the top 10 to finish on the podium. Given how difficult the Monaco circuit is, Sacha Fenestraz can be delighted with his weekend whilst Jake Hughes and Dan Ticktum also had good days. Jean-Eric Vergne started the race in last so to finish 7th is absolutely remarkable whilst Stoffel Vandoorne also deserves a mention for finishing 9th after starting alongside his teammate on the back row of the grid.

Drivers who Struggled

Pascal Wehrlein entered Monaco as the Championship leader, but he really struggled and finished the race outside the points. Edoardo Mortara once again dropped through the field, a collision with his teammate certainly didn’t help. Sergio Sette Camara once again had a poor showing for NIO 333 whilst Rene Rast had no pace whatsoever. Oliver Rowland started well, but his lack of a calm head resulted in him retiring from the race.
