The ABB FIA Formula E Championship returns to the iconic streets of the Principality of Monaco for the ninth round of Season 9. The first eight races this season have proven exciting and action-packed for the DS PENSKE team. This weekend’s race will mark the sixth time that the series finds itself competing on the most famous racetrack on the planet, this Saturday, May 6th at 15:03 local time. 

After celebrating their third podium of the season in Berlin, Germany, the DS PENSKE squad has arrived in Monaco extremely determined to continue this strong momentum and maximize their opportunity to score a sizeable haul of points. The Frenchman Jean-Éric Vergne is currently third in the Drivers’ Championship and DS PENSKE fourth position in the team standings. 

The circuit de Monaco is a favorite among fans and drivers, with Formula E cars circling the Hercules Harbor with stunning views of the glamorous French Riviera.  

The reigning champion Stoffel Vandoorne mastered the streets of Monte-Carlo last year and will push the DS E-TENSE FE23 to the maximum to score as many points as he can. The Team is fully focused on the car’s performance to be in a position to fight for more podiums.   

Stoffel Vandoorne, reigning Formula E world champion

I am really looking forward to Monaco, as I consider it my home race. It is a unique and demanding track, dominated by slow and medium-speed corners. It is certainly the most intense circuit which demands 100% concentration and focus.I am pretty optimistic,  I have seen great progress in the last few races, the Team keeps working and improving. The car has showed a strong pace so we’ll continue to work hard as we head into the race weekend.’

‘Monaco is an iconic race for all the drivers, it is always something very special to drive through these legendary streets! I have amazing memories here and I definitely want to create new ones with DS PENSKE. Each race is a new beginning, a new chance to take a maximum of points and I cannot wait to hit the track this Saturday!’.
