JEV ends the streak 

With just two more rounds in the voestalpine European races to go before the epic double-header season finale in New York City, Jean-Eric Vergne (DS Techeetah) ended the record streak of eight winners in eight races with the first double victory of the season. With just one point between him and his teammate Andre Lotterer in second and just 33 points separating the top ten, there's everything to play for.

Massa makes it in Monte Carlo

After a disappointing start to the season, Venturi rookie Felipe Massa finally made it onto the podium in an emotional third place finish in his team's home race, "I remember passing by the grandstands during the race and hearing my kids shout for me - it was incredible. At the end of the podium, Gildo Pastor, our team boss, was crying and thanking me for doing this for us here in Monaco. After everything that he's been through, I think this kind of thing gives even more. It brings a great deal of happiness to all of us in the team."

Why Watch Formula E in 2019?

New Cars

While the championship might be only five years old, the technology racing around the circuit is ever-changing. The 2018/19 season sees 22 brand new Gen2 cars racing around the world in anger for the very first time. The Batmobile-esque all-electric racer has double the energy storage capacity of the Gen1 car, meaning it can complete a whole race, so wave goodbye to mid-race car swaps. With 250kW of power, the Gen2 will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.8-seconds and go on to a top speed of 280km/h. Greater speeds, more action on track and with just one car per driver - there's everything to lose. 

New power modes

The 2018/19 season is set to be more intense than ever before. New ATTACK MODE lets every driver pick up an extra hit of power at their own risk. To fire up ATTACK MODE, drivers will need to arm their car, drive off the racing line, and through the Activation Zone. It’s only here that they’ll be able to collect an extra 25 kW of power. Drivers that secure the extra speed, can use it for a few laps when they want to race harder, giving them the edge to keep ahead of the competition.

The best driver line up

With newcomers HWA Racelab taking the total number of teams to 11, the 2018/19 season of Formula E boasts one of the finest driver line-ups in motorsport. With the likes of Felipe Massa (Venturi Formula E), Pascal Wehrlein (Mahindra Racing), Alexander Sims (BMW i Andretti Motorsport), Maximillian Guenther (Geox Dragon), Oliver Rowland (Nissan e.dams), Gary Paffett and Stoffel Vandoorne (HWA Racelab) all new to the series, the competition is higher than ever before. With all drivers fighting to earn their seat, it’s tough at the top.

13 races in 12 cities over 5 continents

At Formula E we turn any city into a race track. The Formula E 2018/19 season calendar sees some familiar favourites reappear alongside some new, iconic cities. With a total of 13 races in 12 cities spread across five continents, what started in Saudi Arabia will return to Marrakesh and Santiago before moving to Mexico City, Hong Kong and, for the first time, Sanya in mainland China. For the newly titled voestalpine European races, we're back on the streets of Rome, Paris, Monaco and Berlin before the series makes its debut in Bern ahead of finishing up with a double-header season finale in New York City, where we'll crown a new champion. It's going to be one hell of a ride.
