The Principality of Monaco plays host to the 9th round of the Formula E season on May 11th. Occupying a legendary place among motorsport fans, the Monaco circuit host the all-electric street racing for the third time in championship history.
DS TECHEETAH enter the round as championship leaders for the Teams, with drivers André Lotterer and Jean-Éric Vergne in second and sixth place respectively in the Drivers’ championship.
André Lotterer said: “I’m incredibly motivated to have a good result in Monaco. I’ve had two second places now so it’s time to turn that into a first place. As a driver, winning is all that you think about. You live and breathe it so being close yet so far really triggers you to wanting it even more and I will give it all I got. It’s all about every single little point as the championship is a numbers game in the end of the day and we can’t take any gambles.”
Jean-Éric Vergne said: “With five races to go, it’s getting really exciting now. With eight different winners in eight races, anything is possible. Monaco is a track I enjoy driving and it helps that I’ve driven here before. Just like the Grand Prix circuit, the Formula E circuit is super tricky to overtake on so it will be as important as ever to qualify well. All my focus will be on putting it all together to ensure I grid at the top.”
