FACTS AND STATS: New highs for Cassidy and Monaco's fastest race yet

Round 9 brought us a new standings leader in Nick Cassidy (Envision Racing). Both driver and team have pushed on to new highs in Season 9 and nowhere has that been more evident than in the Principality - and Formula E's fastest Monaco E-Prix yet. Here's Monte Carlo in numbers.

Monaco start

- Nick Cassidy now leads the standings for the first time, becoming the 18th driver to have led the championship in Formula E and the second Kiwi, after Mitch Evans led the for one race following the Season 6 Mexico City E-Prix

- For the first time, drivers from the same nation have won four races in a row, with New Zealand drivers winning each race since Sao Paulo

- For the first time in Formula E, drivers from the same nation have won four races in a row. Sam Bird, Jake Dennis and Alex Lynn won consecutive races back in Season - the previous record

Practice and Quali runs


- After topping FP1 in Monaco, Evans is the first driver to have headed three practice sessions in Season 9. He has finished ten of 16 practice sessions so far this season in the top five

- Andre Lotterer's 10th on the grid was the first time since race one of the 2022 London E-Prix that he'd beaten teammate Jake Dennis in qualifying

- Evans became just the third driver since the start of Season 6 to qualify in the top 10 nine times in a row. The other two drivers are Andre Lotterer and Jean-Eric Vergne, who both managed this in Season 8

Tactical showcase, Monaco records and new highs for Cassidy

- Monaco was a tactical showcase. Energy was key and Cassidy managed pace, averaging a 1m37.283s until the Safety car on Lap 21. He got the green light to bolt on Lap 23 from his engineer and flew to an average of 1m32.013s to the chequered flag

- Dennis claimed his third TAG Heuer Fastest Lap of the season in Monaco, making the Brit just the seventh driver to have claimed three in the same season. Dennis has now claimed five in the last 13 races

- Dennis' 1m31.119s was 1.588 seconds quicker than we saw at the end of the GEN3 era, and Robin Frijns prior best in Monaco 


- Cassidy has now led more laps in Season 9 than in Season 7 and 8 combined with 17 led in Monaco. He’s tied with Season 7 champion Nyck de Vries on 118 laps led

- Cassidy’s also level with de Vries on Formula E points (265)

- Envision Racing’s win in the Principality was its 14th in Formula E. Only Renault e.dams and TECHEETAH top them in the all-time charts (with 15 wins each).

- Evans has become just the second driver to have led four consecutive races. The only other driver to have led four races in row was Lucas di Grassi, all the way back in Season 2

- Each of his three wins have been from a different grid position: His first, in New York last season was from pole. His win in Berlin was from eighth on the grid and Monaco, ninth. Only five other drivers claimed their first three wins from three different grid positions (Sam Bird, Jerome d’Ambrosio, Nyck de Vries, Edoardo Mortara and Pascal Wehrlein)

New streaks and top scoring nations

- Seven different teams filled the top seven spots in Monaco - the first time this has happened since race one in Seoul, Season 8, which saw eight different teams in the top eight


- Both DS PENSKE drivers had to start from the back due to a tyre pressure infringement in Quali. Both worked their way through the pack to points, with Jean-Eric Vergne taking seventh place and Stoffel Vandoorne taking ninth place. This is the first time since the Season 6 Mexico City E-Prix, in which the two drivers on the back row of the grid both finished in the top 10

- Dan Ticktum has now scored points in consecutive races for the first time. He becomes the first NIO 333 driver to score in back-to-back races since Tom Blomqvist in Season 7

- TAG Heuer Porsche have only scored one point in their three visits to Monaco, after Wehrlein was classified 10th. However, this only came after Bird received a five-second penalty for a late race collision with Nico Mueller. Wehrlein originally crossed the line in 11th place, and outside the points

- Lotterer only managed to complete one lap in Monaco before having to retire with contact. However, the one lap completed means that the German driver has completed exactly 2,500 racing laps in Formula E. Only nine drivers have completed 2,500 racing laps in Formula E

- British drivers have now surpassed 1,900 total Formula E points. With there being five Brits on the grid, British drivers are closing in on becoming the first nation to score 2,000 points

- Bird has become the first driver to finish in their grid position three times in Season 9. The Londoner started and finished third in the first race in Diriyah, started and finished second in the opening race in Berlin. After a post-race penalty, Bird finished in 16th place in Monaco (which was his grid position). Across the nine seasons of Formula E, Sebastien Buemi has finished in the same position he started the most times (16). Nissan driver Norman Nato has not finished in the same position he started in any of his 26 E-Prix

- Monaco marked the 40th Formula E race in which Dennis, Cassidy and Wehrlein have raced for their respective teams. 18 drivers have now entered at least 40 races for a single team. Buemi raced 43 times for Renault e.dams and 55 times for Nissan e.dams, making the Season 2 champion the only driver to have raced over 40 times for two teams
