FACTS AND STATS: Kiwis on top, powertrain streaks and mastering the Jakarta heat

The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship makes its return to Jakarta, Indonesia for a double-header this time around, and Rounds 10 & 11 of Season 9. Here's the race in numbers.

Cassidy Monaco Formula E

-  Jakarta will be the 11th different city to have hosted a Formula E double-header. Berlin and New York City have hosted them in the most seasons (5)

- The pair of races in Jakarta will be the 28th Formula E double-header, with 16 having come since the start of Season 7

New leaders

- For the first time since the end of the Season 7 New York City E-Prix, Envision Racing lead both the Drivers' and Teams' standings at the same time. Back in Season 7 it was Sam Bird who led

- Jean-Eric Vergne and Cassidy have the current longest top 10 finishing streak, with both drivers also having finished in the points in the last six races

- On Formula E’s first visit to Jakarta last season DS TECHEETAH claimed a front row lockout, which was the team’s only front-row lockout in Season 8 - the fourth and most recent for the team in Formula 

- Last season in Jakarta was also the fourth time that Antonio Felix da Costa and Vergne shared the front row in Formula E. Only two driver pairings have shared the front row four times (with the other pairing being Felix Rosenqvist and Sam Bird)


Season 8 records and runs

- Mitch Evans won last season’s race in Jakarta by less than one second with the lead switching between Evans and Vergne five times during the race

- New Zealanders Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy made the 
nation the first to win four consecutive races. It now has 11 wins overall, behind France (15), Brazil (15), Great Britain (18) and Switzerland (19)

- 2023 has seen strings of results: Porsche powertrains finished 1-2 in the first three races and won four of the first five races. Sao Paulo saw Jaguar powertrains finish 1-2-3 for the first time in Formula E, the beginning of four consecutive Jaguar powertrain victories (and counting) which also included a Jaguar-powered front row lockout in Berlin

- The last three cars on the grid in Berlin were powered by Mahindra, before Mahindra-powered ABT locked out the front row the next day! Continuing the theme, Nissan-powered cars were 1-2-3 on the grid in Monaco. Last year’s inaugural event in Jakarta saw the DS-powered TECHEETAHs lock out the front row

- In the Season 8 visit to Jakarta, Evans picked up the TAG Heuer Fastest Lap. Evans has fastest laps in three consecutive seasons (Season 6, Season 7 and Season 8), but still doesn’t have one in Season 9

- Envision Racing failed to score in Jakarta last season; finishing in 16th and 17th. It’s one of three cities they’ve not scored - Moscow and Sanya the others


- Sunday’s race in Jakarta will be held on the same date as last season’s Jakarta E-Prix (4 June). Only three other cities have hosted multiple races on the same day of the year; Diriyah (28 January), Rome (10 April) and New York City (14 July, 15 July and 16 July)

- There's been 12 consecutive races without a winner from pole . In that time, there have been twice as many wins from OUTSIDE the top-8 on the grid (4) as from inside the top three on the grid (2). The polesitter has not even finished on the podium since Lucas di Grassi finished third in the opening race of 2023 in Mexico City

- Both double-headers so far in Season 9 have seen both races won by drivers from the same nation. Pascal Wehrlein won both races in Diriyah and the New Zealand pairing of Evans and Cassidy won both races in Berlin

- Since last season’s Jakarta E-Prix, the three highest scoring drivers in Formula E have been Jake Dennis (186 points), Nick Cassidy (173 points) and Mitch Evans (165 points)

- Last season’s winner in Jakarta came from the top three places on the grid (which happened in all ten of the last ten races in Season 8). In the first nine races of Season 9, the winner has only come from the top three grid positions in three races


- Race 2 in Jakarta will be the 24th Formula E race in Asia, which is the same number of races as North America. Europe is the only continent to have hosted more Formula E races (47)

- The Jakarta E-Prix will see the Formula E debuts for David Beckmann in the Avalanche Andretti and Roberto Merhi in the Mahindra. Beckmann will be the eighth German driver to have raced in Formula E, with there only having been more British (15) and German (11) drivers. Beckmann will also become the first Formula E driver to have been born in the 21st century. Merhi will be the fourth Spanish driver in Formula E, but the first since the end of Season 1
