Monaco, Monte-Carlo – 2024 Monaco E-Prix surpassed all expectations, treating fans to a spectacle of adrenaline-pumping action and jaw-dropping moments. From start to finish, the race delivered non-stop excitement, proving once again why it stands as a highlight on the motorsport calendar. 

Race 8 of Season 10 got off to an impressive start with both drivers heading to the duels after a strong qualifying session with Stoffel Vandoorne pushing into the finals. Their efforts were rewarded with JEV starting P5 and Stoffel front row in P2 . With three consecutive front row starts the team has reaffirmed its status as one of the top qualifiers on the grid. 

During the race, Vandoorne wasted no time asserting himself at the front of the field, making a strong start from his P2 grid position and quickly setting his sights on the lead. With precision and patience, he maneuvered his car through the opening laps, positioning himself perfectly to take advantage when the opportunity arose.

Meanwhile, Jean-Éric Vergne showcased his own skill and determination. His aggressive overtaking maneuvers and relentless pursuit of the leaders kept fans on the edge of their seats as he battled for positions. With each passing lap, the DS Penske drivers continued to push the limits, engaging in wheel-to-wheel battles as they fought for every inch of track space. As the race progressed, the battle for podium positions intensified, with both drivers refusing to back down in the face of stiff competition. 

Overcoming the challenges of an eventful race, which saw three yellow flags and a safety car, the DS PENSKE drivers delivered a stellar performance, demonstrating both skill and resilience on one of motorsport’s most iconic circuits. Stoffel, the 2022 World Champion, crossed the finish line to secure third-place finish, and the two time Champion, Frenchman Jean-Eric Vergne, finished a very close fourth-place finish. 

Today’s 27-point haul leaves DS PENSKE 5th in the team standings. The team looks forward to returning once again to the challenging Tempelhof Airfield for a  double header race (R9 & R10) on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May, 2024. With Berlin marking both the midpoint of the season and the 10th year anniversary since the inception of the all-electric series, this occasion adds an extra layer of significance to the proceedings, as teams and drivers reflect on the journey thus far while setting their sights on the future. 

As the Championship progresses, DS PENSKE remains focused on its goals, determined to continue its pursuit of victory in the races ahead.

Starting P5 and finishing P4 in today’s race was a solid result for us. We fought hard out there, and every position gained on a track as challenging as Monaco is an achievement. It wasn’t an easy race, but we stayed focused, made the most of every opportunity, and brought home some valuable points for the team. We’ll take the positives from today and keep pushing forward as we strive for even better results in the future.”
