Doing the double: which drivers have won both races over a double-header?

Last season in Diriyah, TAG Heuer Porsche’s Pascal Wehrlein achieved something that only four other drivers have done across all seasons of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship: he won the two E-Prix over a double-header weekend!


It was a big accomplishment and not as simple as a lights-to-flag victory, as Wehrlein battled his way to the front of the pack on both occasions. We wonder if any of the other drivers on the grid will be able to duplicate this in Season 10. 

Wehrlein celebrates Porsche Formula E win

Nico Prost (London 2016)

Renault e.Dams’ Nico Prost became the first driver in Formula E to take victory twice at the same venue over a single weekend. Despite his teammate, Sebastien Buemi, fighting Lucas di Grassi for the drivers’ title, Prost was able to get his head down to take back-to-back wins in London. The circuit, located around Battersea Park, hosted the season finale, with Buemi taking the championship crown. 

These were the only two wins for Prost all season and helped him finish third in the overall standings - his best-ever result. 

Sam Bird (New York 2017)

Briton Sam Bird secured the double when Formula E first visited New York City. Representing DS Virgin, Bird made history as he locked in not one but two victories in a historic race - the first time an international motor race was staged in the city. 

Although Bird’s rookie teammate, Alex Lynn, took pole position for his first-ever Formula E race, Bird managed to take the lead from lap 16 of 43 and held on. The following day, Bird converted pole position into another win.

Antonio Felix da Costa (Berlin 2020)

The next driver to win two races over the same ‘weekend’ was Antonio Felix da Costa, who was on his way to the Season 6 Drivers’ Title. Racing for DS Techeetah, this season of the all-electric championship was heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. In an attempt to crown a champion, the final six races of the calendar were all held in Berlin. 

The iconic Tempelhof Airport hosted the races, with different circuit configurations being used over the nine days. Da Costa won the first ‘double-header’ event, where the normal circuit layout was run in reverse. 

Mitch Evans (Rome 2022)

After a bumpy start to the season, only scoring one point in the first three races, Jaguar TCS Racing’s Mitch Evans rocked up in Rome and dominated the weekend. 

Having started the first race from ninth, he fought his way to the front and pounced on Envision Racing’s Robin Frijns to take the lead with over ten minutes left. Evans would cross the chequered flag with an impressive lead of 5.703s. 

One win wasn’t enough for the Jaguar driver, who then repeated his success the following day after qualifying in fourth and beating the DS Techeetah of two-time champion Jean-Eric Vergne by just over half a second to do the double. 

Pascal Wehrlein (Diriyah 2023)

Porsche’s Wehrlein left the deserts of Diriyah leading the drivers’ world championship, having won both races starting ninth and fifth, respectively. Backed by Porsche power, he made it look almost easy as he crossed the chequered flag first at the Friday and Saturday events.
