Season 10 – 2024 MISANO E-PRIX

Misano Adriatico, RN, – Los Angeles, California, USA

  • Rounds 6 & 7 – The first European leg of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship moves from Rome to the historic and iconic Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, located in beautiful Emilia-Romagna, Italy, from April 13-14, 2024
  • Misano represents two key races for the DS PENSKE team that is keen to return to the forefront
  • Two-time Formula E Champion Jean-Eric Vergne and 2022 World Champion Stoffel Vandoorne behind the wheel of the DS E-TENSE F23 are looking forward to the new circuit challenge and to fight for the top step on the podium


For the first time in the history of the 100% electric single seater category, Misano World Circuit will welcome a 22-strong grid of third-generation Formula E machines. The circuit, located at the end of Italy’s famous motor valley, will host round 6 on Saturday 13 April and round 7 on Sunday 14 April, at 15h04 local time.

 Usually home to Grand Prix Motorcycle (Moto GP) and SuperBike World Racing, the circuit was designed in 1969 before opening in 1972. For Formula E’s first visit, the teams will run a modified 3.382km circuit instead of 4,226. It is a rapid and flowing track with plenty of overtaking opportunities and room for manoeuvers.

The DS PENSKE squad can rely on its talented driver pairing, the Frenchman Jean-Eric Vergne and the Belgian Stoffel Vandoorne, to firmly stay in the hunt for wins. The flowing fast track suits both driver’s aggressive driving style.

 As ever in the ultra-competitive championship, qualifying will play an important role in determining the outcome of the weekend in Misano. A strong starting position on the grid will be key.

With many lessons learned from the previous rounds of this Season 10, DS PENSKE heads into the Italian ePrix weekend with fresh motivation to return to the front of the grid and reestablish their hunt for the Championship.

 Stoffel Vandoorne, 2022 Formula E World Champion

‘I am thrilled to race here in the Italian motorsport heartland! The last races showed us that Season 10 is going to be fought at the very highest level. Tokyo was tough, we know what we need to improve on and with the team, we worked very hard, aware of our strengths and potential to achieve our objectives. I will give it my all this weekend to be in the front and score as many points as I can.’

 Jean-Eric Vergne, 2018 & 2019 Formula E Champion

‘Back in Italy! Very happy to be here. This country has a rich history in motorsport, Italian people are very passionate fans. This is a new track for all the teams, rapid with long straights and several long corners, but it is a permanent track with a flawless surface and nice grip. Each race is a new chance to take a maximum of points, the team has been working flat out to maximise our opportunities, I want us to deliver a strong weekend and I cannot wait to hit the track on Saturday.’
