2017/18 2019/20
The 2018/19 Formula E Season, officially known as the 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship, was the fifth edition of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, which ran from December 2018 through to July 2019.[1] Season five proved to be one of the most dramatic seasons in FE's short history, having seen the introduction of a new base car, the Spark SRT05e, and race format.[2]

It was also the first season of Formula E to feature a support series, with the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy held on the same day as ten of the season's E-Prix.[3] It, like Formula E's first season, was a single make series, with all competitors using the Jaguar I-Pace SUV.[3]

Jean-Éric Vergne would start the season as the defending Formula E Champion, having sealed his maiden FE crown at the 2017/18 season finale in New York City.[4] Likewise, Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler would start the season as the defending Teams Champions, having secured their maiden FE title at the very same round.[4]

The season began with victory for debutantes BMW in Ad Diriyah, who saw lead driver António Félix da Costa claim pole en-route to the Bavarian manufacturer's maiden triumph.[5] BMW were subsequently on for a one-two finish at the following round in Marrakech, only for da Costa and teammate Alexander Sims to clash and hand victory to Jérôme d'Ambrosio of Mahindra Racing.[6]

So began one of the most dynamic seasons of FE's history, with drivers suffering massive swings of fortune from one round to the next. Indeed, the next three winners, Sam Bird (Envision Virgin), Lucas di Grassi (Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler) and Edoardo Mortara (Venturi) would have startling different seasons, with Mortara in particular failing to score another point after his maiden triumph.[7]

Vergne, meanwhile, would claim his first win of the season in Sanya, while Mitch Evans secured his, and Jaguar's, maiden triumph in Rome.[8] Robin Frijns subsequently made it eight different winners across the opening eight races, only for Vergne to end that streak of unique winners by claiming the win in Monte Carlo.[9]

With that Vergne became the man to beat in the Championship, although wins and strong results for fellow former Champions di Grassi and Sébastien Buemi kept them in the title fight through to the season finale in New York City.[10] Ultimately, however, Vergne would hold too much of a lead to be overhauled at the finale, and duly picked up his second FE title on the final day of the season, having broken away from his pursuers with a third win of the season in Bern a few weeks earlier.[11]

The Teams Championship would also go down to the wire, with DS Techeetah managing to hold on at the finale to claim their first Championship.[10] Elsewhere a series of new drivers came to the fore across the season, headed by Formula One refugees Pascal Wehrlein and Stoffel Vandoorne, with the latter dominating FanBoost throughout the season.[12]

Background

As part of the evolution of Formula E to a world leading series, the FIA and Formula E Holdings commissioned Spark Racing Technologies to design a new car to replace the five year old Spark-Renault SRT_01E.[2] This new car, dubbed the "Gen 2", featured a complete redesign of the body work, suspension and brakes, and was fitted with a McLaren developed battery which was to last for the entire race distance.[2] Images of the new car were released on 30 January 2018, with a full public reveal, and first deliveries, made on 8 March 2018.[2]

Calendar

The provisional calendar has yet to be released for the 2018/19 FIA Formula E Championship, although it has been revealed that the historical Saudi Arabian capital Ad Diriyah will host the opening round.[13] After that, the full but provisional calendar, featuring two "TBAs", was released on the 7 June 2018, confirming that the Ad Diriyah district of Riyadh would indeed host the season opener.[1] The inaugural visit to Riyadh was scheduled for the 15 December 2018, with a trip to Marrakech following on 12 January 2019.[1]

The first TBA of the season was next, set for the 26 January 2019, with Santiago later announced as the third city to host FE in 2018/19, on the new Parque O'Higgins Circuit.[14] Another visit to Mexico City would follow in mid-February, before FE headed to Hong Kong on 10 March, with both venues unchanged.[1] A second race in China was also scheduled, with a deal for the series to head to Sanya, a city on Hainan Island, scheduled for the 23 March, 2019.[15]

After that, the FE series would head back to Europe for the first ever voestalpine European Races, set to be awarded to the best driver across 2018/19's five European E-Prix.[16][17] Visits to Rome and Paris would open the European tour, before FE made its debut on the full, and famed, Circuit de Monaco in Monte Carlo.[1] A trip to the Tempelhofring in Berlin would follow, before the "European Series" came to its conclusion in Bern on 9 June, the latter event replacing Zürich on the calendar.[18]

With that, the 2018/19 campaign would head to New York City for the season finale, with the US financial capital hosting another double header for the series.[1] In terms of testing a collective pre-season test was expected but not confirmed on the provisional calendar, while an in-season test, akin to the 2018 Rookie Test, was not initially announced.[1]

All private pre-season testing will be conducted prior to the final homolgation date, 1 October 2018. A public test at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo near Valencia would then conclude pre-season testing, with all eleven teams in attendance between the 16 and 19 October 2018.[19] There would also be an in-season test staged after the opening round at Ad Diriyah, intended to allow a number of female drivers to drive an FE car, while there were also reports of a rookie test scheduled after the Marrakech E-Prix.[20] A third and final in-season test was also scheduled, taking place after the 2019 Mexico City E-Prix in mid-February, which would be restricted to drivers listed on the official entry list.[21]

Regulations

Nine manufacturers were granted the ability to submit powertrain designs to compete in 2018/19, all of them committing to a three year stint in the Championship.[27] Additional manufacturers would be permitted to enter designs during the three year period, either signing up for the 2019/20 or 2020/21 seasons.[27]

Technical

Nine manufacturers would use the newest Spark Racing Technologies SRT05e chassis design as a basis, building their own powertrain solutions to harness the energy stored in the latest McLaren Applied Technologies battery.[27] This McLaren battery will last for the entire race distance, bringing an end to the mid-race car swap seen during the first four seasons, although this change will likely mean more conservative driving is required.[27] The FIA therefore implemented an "Attack Mode" boost system for the fifth season of FE to increase the amount of tactical racing, while an LED screen and light system was installed on the new Halo head protection device to inform spectators of whether a driver is in "attack mode".[28]

FanBoost would also receive an upgrade for the 2018/19 season, with the temporary 25 kW power boost set to be extended to five drivers, up from three in previous seasons.[29] There were also modifications to its use, reduced to just the final 22 minutes of the race, although the voting time limit and rules remained unchanged from 2017/18.[29]

Sporting

Ahead of the 2018/19 season it was revealed that there would be a change to the race distance, with the conventional system of a fixed race distance replaced by a maximum time limit.[30] Instead, 2018/19 E-Prix would be contested over 45 minutes plus an additional lap, meaning teams would have to carefully monitor their energy usage and adapt their strategy during the race, rather than calculate it before hand.[30] The move proved universally popular with drivers and teams, although concerns over how long delays such as red flags were to be handled were raised by fans.

The points system for finishing position is expected to remain as it has been since the inaugural 2014/15 Season, with points awarded from 1st to 10th using the FIA's standard points system.[31] An extra three points are to be awarded to the pole setter at each E-Prix, while the driver who records the fastest lap in the top ten of each race will receive an additional point.[31] There were plans to replace the fastest lap point with an "efficiency bonus point", designed to promote more efficient powertrain designs and energy consumption, although this change was vetoed by the teams shortly before the start of the season.[32]

Outlined below is a full breakdown of the point scoring system for the 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship:

2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship Points Table
1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th
25 18 15 12 10 8 6 4 2 1
Pole Position Fastest Lap
3 1

Each driver was allocated ten Michelin Pilot Sport tyres (two and a half sets) at each race meeting which must last for the entire race meeting.[31]

Qualifying

Rules regarding qualifying were also changed ahead of the fifth FE season, with the "lottery" element of the group allocations completely abandoned.[33] Instead, the groups would be allocated solely on Championship position, with the top five/six in the first group, sixth/seventh through to tenth/twelfth in the next and so on.[33] Each group will also be expanded to include a potential sixth car due to the addition of the new-for-2018/19 HWA Team, while Super Pole was modified to include a sixth driver as well.[33]

Season Report

Pre-season

Race One: Ad Diriyah E-Prix (15 December 2018)

The streets of the ancient city of Ad Diriyah would host the opening round of the 2018/19 campaign, with a twisting circuit layout devised for the first ever E-Prix to be staged in the Middle East.[1]

Qualifying

For the full qualifying report, head to the 2018 Ad Diriyah E-Prix article.

Ad Diriyah E-Prix Poster 2019

FE kicked off in 2018/19 with a trip to Saudi Arabia.

Qualifying for the opening race of the season would be interrupted by heavy rain, meaning Super Pole was cancelled, while the field was split into groups, rather than the usual four.[34] Amid the confusion it would be António Félix da Costa, driving for the BMW-Andretti team who swept to pole position, ahead of José María López of GEOX DRAGON.[34] Elsewhere, defending Champion Jean-Éric Vergne would start his title defence in fifth, while four drivers failed to set representative lap times.[34]

Race

For the full race report, head to the 2018 Ad Diriyah E-Prix article.

The circuit remained fairly damp as the field lined-up to take the start, with da Costa having multiple attempts at getting his new BMW into his grid slot.[35] Fortunately for the Portuguese ace he was able to get an excellent launch to claim an early lead, while Sébastien Buemi claimed second from López.[35] The Argentine duly slipped behind the two DS Techeetahs of André Lotterer and Vergne, with those two working together to hunt down the leaders.[35]

Vergne would subsequently catch and pass Buemi as the race ticked past half-distance, before harassing da Costa for the lead.[35] Ultimately an ambitious lunge around the outside of the BMW-Andretti was enough for Vergne to claim the lead, only for the Frenchman to be slapped with a penalty for using too much re-gen.[35] Vergne served his penalty instantly and rejoined in fifth, behind da Costa, Buemi, Jérôme d'Ambrosio and López.[35]

That, however, was not enough to dissuade Vergne, who duly barged his way back up to second, before sending a last minute lunge at da Costa for the lead on the final lap.[35] This time, however, da Costa would hold on to claim the win ahead of the Frenchman, while d'Ambrosio elbowed his way past Buemi to claim third.[35]

Race Two: Marrakech E-Prix (12 January 2019)

The annual trip to Marrakech was made on the 12 January 2019, with the Circuit Moulay El Hassan unchanged ahead of its third E-Prix.[1] The circuit was also scheduled to host the now annual Rookie Test, which saw Nico Müller record the fastest time.[36]

Qualifying

For the full qualifying report, head to the 2019 Marrakech E-Prix article.

Sam Bird would claim pole position for the Marrakech E-Prix, in-spite of having to complete Super Pole with a damaged diffuser, courtesy of a bizarre pitlane shunt caused by Tom Dillmann.[37] The #2 Envision Virgin run Audi just edged out Vergne's #25 DS Techeetah in the shootout, while da Costa was classified in third, only to be slapped with a grid penalty.[37] His third place was hence handed to Buemi, while Alexander Sims and Evans had completed the shootout.[37]

Race

For the full race report, head to the 2019 Marrakech E-Prix article.

Bird made a strong start to the race to claim an early lead, only for Vergne to clatter into the side of him through turn one, trying an ambitious lunge for the lead.[38] Vergne duly sent himself spinning across the circuit, with the resulting melee taking out the two HWA Racelabs as well as the debuting Pascal Wehrlein in his Mahindra.[38] Bird, meanwhile, would just hang onto his lead, although he would be chased hard by Sims and da Costa in the BMW-Andrettis.[38]

Bird's resistance faded just after half-distance, with the two BMW-Andrettis barging past, before Robin Frijns, Lucas di Grassi and d'Ambrosio followed them through.[38] d'Ambrosio then emerged as the main pretender to the BMWs, battling past Frijns and di Grassi with Attack Mode, before sprinting off to catch the lead duo.[38] Indeed, da Costa and Sims were costing each other a lot of time as they squabbled for the lead, resulting in a rather stupid collision.[38]

Indeed, with four laps to go a communication error would see Sims told he would be waved past by da Costa, only for the Portuguese's engineers to tell him to fight for the lead.[38] The pair duly tangled with one-another at turn seven, with da Costa ending up in the barriers, while Sims dropped to fourth.[38] d'Ambrosio was hence left in the lead ahead of Frijns and Bird, with those three surviving a late safety car to complete the podium.[38]

Race Three: Santiago E-Prix (26 January 2019)

The Santiago E-Prix returned for the 2018/19 campaign, although a new circuit, dubbed the Parque O'Higgins Circuit, had been created for the faster Spark SRT05es.[14]

Qualifying

For the full qualifying report, head to the 2019 Santiago E-Prix article.

It was di Grassi who looked to have claimed pole position for the Santiago race, only for the Brazilian to be disqualified for not observing the new pit-in procedure.[39] The new rule, implemented in response to the Marrakech pit-lane accident, was designed to ensure that brake temperatures were maintained on in-laps, with cool brakes and re-gen issues cited as a major contributor to the former accident.[39] di Grassi's failure to follow the rules hence gifted pole to Buemi, with FE rookie Wehrlein inheriting an impressive second ahead of Daniel Abt.[39]

Race

For the full race report, head to the 2019 Santiago E-Prix article.

Wehrlein would produce a half-hearted bid for the lead at the start of the race, although Buemi was able to swat it aside to claim the lead.[40] Abt and Bird gave chase in third and fourth, with the Brit barging past the sister car early on, before joining the lead duo in breaking clear.[40] Indeed, the early laps proved fairly tame, until a series of incidents, culminating in Maximilian Günther stopping on track, caused a FCY to be thrown.[40]

Almost unseen amid the sudden spike of incidents, Bird would dive past Wehrlein, before hunting down Buemi after the restart.[40] His charge was briefly interrupted by another FCY, this time caused by Stoffel Vandoorne, while Vergne and da Costa tripped over one-another at the back of the field.[40] Once again, Bird got a strong restart to close right onto Buemi's tail, with Wehrlein shadowing them a few metres behind.[40]

Ultimately, however, there would be no great fight for the lead, for Buemi sent himself sliding into the barriers at turn seven to hand Bird first place.[40] The Brit duly fended off a weaving Wehrlein to secure victory ahead of the German, while Abt would inherit third at the end of the race as Sims was slapped with a time penalty.[40]

Race Four: Mexico City E-Prix (16 February 2019)

Formula E headed to the familiar sights of the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in Mexico City for the fourth round of the campaign, with a third and final in-season test to follow.[1]

Qualifying

For the full qualifying report, head to the 2019 Mexico City E-Prix article.

Wehrlein would sweep to his first career pole position in Mexico City, beating di Grassi by three tenths after an immense lap.[41] Closest to them was ex-F1 ace Felipe Massa, who made his maiden Super Pole appearance, while Oliver Rowland claimed fourth having topped the group stage.[41] The other two slots in Super Pole were occupied by da Costa and Buemi of BMW-Andretti and Nissan e.Dams.[41]

Race

For the full race report, head to the 2019 Mexico City E-Prix article.

Wehrlein would sprint into an early lead when the lights went out at the start, while Rowland dived past di Grassi and Massa to claim second.[42] The rest of the field made it through without issue, with a fairly tame opening couple of laps ensuring that the order stabilised.[42] That was, until a huge accident brought out the red flags, with Nelson Piquet Jr. getting airboune after hitting the back of Vergne at the final chicane.[42]

A long delay followed as the track was cleaned, while Piquet was sent to the medical centre for checks.[42] The race would resume behind the BMW Qualcomm i8 safety car, with the entire field arming Attack Mode ahead of the full restart.[42] Regardless, it was Wehrlein who eased into the lead at the restart, while Rowland battled with di Grassi over second.[42]

di Grassi would eventually overcome Rowland, before hunting down Wehrlein in the closing stages to challenge for the lead.[42] Indeed, the Brazilian would pounce into turn three on the final lap, with Wehrlein effectively throwing away victory by cutting the chicane, granting him an instant five-second penalty.[42] The German, would, however, maintain the de facto lead right through to the final corner, only to run-out of energy in the sprint to the line and see di Grassi swerve past to claim the win.[42]

Race Five: Hong Kong E-Prix (10 March 2019)

The fifth round of the 2018/19 campaign saw the field gather at the Hong Kong Harbourfront Circuit in Hong Kong on the 10 March 2019.[1]

Qualifying

For the full qualifying report, head to the 2019 Hong Kong E-Prix article.

Qualifying would be dictated by pre-session rain, and hence allow Stoffel Vandoorne to claim a maiden pole position for himself and employers HWA.[43] Rowland proved to be his closest challenger, while Edoardo Mortara claimed third for Venturi, only to be relegated back to sixth due to a penalty.[43] Third on the grid would therefore go to Lotterer ahead of Gary Paffett, while di Grassi had completed the shootout.[43]

Race

For the full race report, head to the 2019 Hong Kong E-Prix article.

Rowland made the better getaway on a still damp circuit, surging inside Vandoorne to secure the lead.[44] Bird was next having got a barnstorming start, leaping from seventh to third ahead of Paffett, Lotterer and di Grassi.[44] The Brit duly went on to claim second from Vandoorne at the start of the second lap, only for the race to be stopped as Felipe Nasr slid into the barriers at turn two.[44]

Rowland would subsequently ace the restart to secure a small lead, while Lotterer got the jump on Vandoorne.[44] The German racer would then join Bird in the hunt for Rowland, only for both to pass the #22 Nissan e.Dams as Rowland accidentally hit his FCY restrictor button exiting turn one.[44] Bird and Lotterer were hence left in a dogfight for the lead, with Lotterer grabbing the lead as Bird made a mistake and slid wide.[44]

Mortara 2019 Hong Kong ePrix

Edoardo Mortara would quietly progress to second, before inheriting victory after the race.

Their fight would be briefly interrupted twice by two safety cars, with Vandoorne and later Rowland both stopping out on circuit.[44] Their fight would go onto the final lap, only for Bird to hit the back of Lotterer as they danced on the brakes into turn two, leaving Lotterer with a rear puncture.[44] He duly limped around the circuit to finish fourteenth, while Bird crossed the line first, only for a five second time penalty to dump him back to sixth for causing a collision.[44]

Mortara was hence declared the victor, ahead of di Grassi and Frijns.[44]

Race Six: Sanya E-Prix (23 March 2019)

Formula E headed to the Chinese province of Hainan Island and the city of Sanya for its sixth race of the season, staged at the Haitang Bay Circuit on the 23 March.[45] The race would mark FE's return to "mainland" China for the first time since the 2015 Beijing ePrix, which had opened the 2015/16 season.[45]

Qualifying

For the full qualifying report, head to the 2019 Sanya E-Prix article.

Rowland proved to be the man to beat in qualifying for the Sanya battle, claiming pole position ahead of Vergne.[46] Buemi, meanwhile, would be sent to start in the pitlane having failed to follow the pit-in procedure, leaving da Costa in third ahead of Abt.[46] Sims had also made the cut for Super Pole but failed to set a time at all.[46]

Race

For the full race report, head to the 2019 Sanya E-Prix article.

A long pause for the lights to go out would catch many of the drivers off guard at the start, with Wehrlein the most notable victim as he tumbled down the field.[47] Out front, meanwhile, Rowland would manage to keep Vergne at bay for the lead, with the rest of the field, bar Nasr, making it through without issue.[47] Indeed, the Brazilian had been left stranded on the grid, meaning the race had to be neutralised under a FCY to allow the #6 GEOX DRAGON to be retrieved.[47]

The FCY's display would cause chaos, with Vandoorne eliminating Bird completely by running into the back of the Brit at they all slammed on the brakes.[47] Regardless, the race resumed just a moment later, Nasr having got going of his own accord, with Rowland leading the top five in a break away from the main group.[47] The order subsequently stabilised, until Vergne made his bid for victory in the final third of the race.[47]

Ultimately it was a well timed lunge into turn seven that earned Vergne the lead, with the Frenchman sprinting clear over the following laps.[47] Rowland, to his credit, would try everything to get back at the #25 DS Techeetah, only for the race come to an end under FCY, with Buemi having punted Frijns into di Grassi at turn eight.[47] Vergne hence claimed the win ahead of Rowland, while da Costa emerged in third with a lightly scarred BMW-Andretti, having survived the chaos around him.[47]

Race Seven: Rome E-Prix (13 April 2019)

The Italian capital of Rome would host the seventh round of the 2018/19 season, as well as the opening edition of the Voestalpine European Races, a mini-Championship within the Championship.[1]

Qualifying

For the full qualifying report, head to the 2019 Rome E-Prix article.

Rome would see André Lotterer sweep to a maiden pole position, with another damp qualifying session throwing up a mixed grid.[48] He duly defeated Mitch Evans in his Jaguar, while José María López, Stoffel Vandoorne, Maximilian Günther and Sébastien Buemi also made the Super Pole cut.[48] In contrast, several major title pretenders were in the lower-half of the field, with António Félix da Costa the best placed of those in group one starting in thirteenth.[48]

The official poster for the 2019 Rome E-Prix.

The rain returned for the start of the race, with Lotterer and Evans slithering away to fight for the lead, while López made a horrendous start.[49] Indeed, having run wide and lost a bunch of places at the first corner, López would proceed to knock Sam Bird into the wall, before crashing at the Bus Stop Chicane.[49] Gary Paffett duly smashed into the back of the #7 GEOX DRAGON having had no chance of avoiding, with the two cars completely blocking the circuit.[49]

Another red-flag delay saw the grid re-ordered, with those who were behind the López/Paffett road block sent back around to complete an additional lap.[49] At the restart it was advantage Lotterer, with the German easing away from Evans, while Vandoorne joined the lead duo in escaping.[49] Indeed, the race ran clean until the two Venturis retired within a couple of laps of one another, bringing out a Full Course Yellow.[49]

After that restart Evans would go on the attack, and duly seized the lead with a dive into the Bus Stop, catching Lotterer off-guard.[49] The pair duly battled through to the chequered flag, with Evans having to back-off in the final laps to ensure that he did not run out of energy.[50] Fortunately for him Lotterer was in even bigger energy trouble, and so the New Zealander was able to cruise home to claim a maiden victory for himself and Jaguar, as well as catapult himself into title contention.[49]

Race Eight: Paris E-Prix (27 April 2019)

A trip to Paris beckoned the FE field on the 27 April 2019, with the unchanged Circuit des Invalides greeting the field with sponsorship from Qatar Airways.[1]

Qualifying

For the full qualifying report, head to the 2019 Paris E-Prix article.

Pascal Wehrlein looked to have claimed his second pole in FE at the Parisian race, only to be thrown out of qualifying completely for illegal tyre pressures.[51] Oliver Rowland was hence promoted onto pole position, while teammate Buemi ensured it was a Nissan e.Dams front-row lockout.[51] They were joined in Super Pole by Robin Frijns and Felipe Massa, while Wehrlein's teammate Jérôme d'Ambrosio was also thrown out of the session for a similar issue.[51]

Race

For the full race report, head to the 2019 Paris E-Prix article.

Once again pre-race rain would play a huge factor at the start, with the officials deciding to start the race behind the BMW Qualcomm i8 safety car, with the left-hand side of the grid significantly damper than the right.[52] Rowland was hence gifted an early lead ahead of teammate Buemi, with the field effectively running in grid order right from the start.[52] Indeed, it was only when Rowland sent himself skating into the barriers early on that the order significantly changed with Buemi claiming the lead ahead of Frijns.[52]

Frijns duly made his bid for the lead a few moments later, throwing numerous attacks at the Swiss ace into turn nine.[52] Yet, Buemi would swat aside all of the Dutchman's attacks, only for his resistance to be broken by a puncture on lap ten.[52] Frijns duly flashed through to claim the lead, moments before heavy rain and hail began pounding the circuit.[52]

A Full Course Yellow was thrown within moments of the hail hitting the circuit, although within two laps the hail had stopped and the FCY was withdrawn.[52] Unfortunately another series of FCYs were required to clear accident damage, meaning the second half of the race was almost completely run at FCY pace.[52] Frijns was hence declared the winner ahead of Lotterer, while Daniel Abt survived the chaos well to claim third for Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler.[52]

Race Nine: Monaco E-Prix (11 May 2019)

The bi-annual trip to the streets of Monte Carlo followed on the 11 May 2019, with FE using a shortened version of the infamous Circuit de Monaco once again.[1]

Rowland secured his third pole position of the season in Monte Carlo, although a pre-qualifying penalty meant that he would start the race from third.[53] That meant that Jean-Éric Vergne would start the race from the front of the field ahead of Mitch Evans, only for Evans to receive a ten place grid penalty for excessive reprimands.[53] Wehrlein hence started from second, while Massa and Buemi had joined them in Super Pole.[53]

Race

Vergne would be ultra defensive at the start of the race, diving to the inside of Sainte Devote to prevent Wehrlein from making a bid for the lead.[54] Behind Rowland tried an ambitious lunge around the outside of them but had to settle for third, while Lotterer made up a large number of places at the back of the field.[54] Regardless, it would be a very clean start the race, with the order soon settling down at the head of the field.[54]

Indeed, it was only when Wehrlein challenged for the lead that the order at the head of the field changed, with a lock-up into Sainte Devote allowing Rowland and Massa to pass the #94 Mahindra.[54] Buemi, meanwhile, would fall back to cause something resembling a "Trulli-train", with everyone from fifth to thirteenth stuck behind the Nissan.[54] In the midst of that train Sam Bird and Lucas di Grassi would climb the order, only for the latter to be inadvertently taken out by Alexander Sims.[54]

Sims would take out another title contender later on during the race, smashing into Frijns as the pair battled on the brakes into Sainte Devote.[54] Frijns' car was quickly craned away from the circuit as the race entered it's final throes, with Vergne in serious trouble with energy.[54] Indeed, it was only a very slow final tour that ensured that Vergne finished the race, with the Frenchman driving very defensively to claim victory ahead of Rowland and Massa.[54]

Race Ten: Berlin E-Prix (25 May 2019)

The Tempelhofring in Berlin would return to serve as the tenth round of the 2019 season, with the circuit, hosting its fifth E-Prix unchanged from 2018.[1]

Qualifying

Berlin E-Prix Poster 2019

The 2019 Berlin E-Prix was staged in late-May.

Sébastien Buemi registered his second pole position of the season, almost two years to the day that he had last won an E-Prix.[55] Indeed, the Swiss ace was in a class of his own in Super Pole, lapping four tenths quicker than closest challenger Stoffel Vandoorne.[55] They were joined in the shootout by di Grassi, Gary Paffett, Alex Lynn and Sims, with no penalties among them revising the order.[55]

Race

For the full race report, head to the 2019 Berlin E-Prix article.

An even start to the race saw Buemi sweep into turn one ahead of Vandoorne, while Lotterer once again made a strong getaway to charge up the order from the back of the field.[56] The race quickly settled down into a procession, although di Grassi was to pass Vandoorne with ease on lap six, before hunting down Buemi.[56] Indeed, it was not long before the home fans were on their feat, for the Ingolstadt built #11 Audi would go scything past the #23 Nissan of Buemi for the lead a few laps later.[56]

di Grassi was on his own from that moment on, with Buemi having to defend heavily from Vandoorne.[56] The Belgian would subsequently come under attack from first Lynn and then António Félix da Costa in the Bavarian born BMW-Andretti, with the Portuguese racer ultimately making his way past both to harass Buemi.[56] Lynn, meanwhile, would cause a late FCY, with an axle failure leaving the #3 Jaguar stranded on the start/finish straight.[56]

The restart would not go too well for da Costa, however, with both Buemi and Jean-Éric Vergne, who cleared Vandoorne, easing past without issue.[56] They would, however, lack to pace to displace di Grassi out front, who duly cruised home to claim his second win of the season and establish his bid for the crown.[56]

Race Eleven: Bern E-Prix (22 June 2019)

The series headed to the streets of Bern, Switzerland for round eleven, with the Bern Street Circuit hosting its first E-Prix on 22 June 2019.[18]

Qualifying

For the full qualifying report, head to the 2019 Bern E-Prix article.

Vergne would claim pole position for the race in Switzerland, stamping his authority on the Championship hunt by three tenths of a second.[57] His closest challenger proved to be Evans, while Buemi claimed third as he tried to remain in the title hunt as well.[57] Completing the shootout would be Wehrlein, Maximilian Günther and Bird, the latter three having run later in the group stage.[57]

Race

For the full race report, head to the 2019 Bern E-Prix article.

Wehrlein and Günther would go on to cause havoc at the start of the race, with the pair clashing at the final chicane to block the circuit.[58] That unsurprisingly caused a red flag, although several drivers, most notably title pretenders di Grassi and da Costa, would slip through the run-off area behind the chicane and avoid the incident, leaving them in the top ten.[58] They were therefore incredibly frustrated when it was announced that the field would be reset to grid order for the restart, which came after a three-quarter of an hour delay.[58]

The race restarted behind the safety car, although Vergne was not able to escape the attentions of Evans.[58] Indeed, the pair would engage in an almost race-long duel for the lead, easing away from Buemi with ease.[58] The Swiss racer himself had to fend off the attentions of a charging Sam Bird, while Wehrlein would stop on track to cause a mid-race FCY.[58]

The fight for the lead, meanwhile would rumble through to the closing stages, with heavy rain sweeping across the circuit with two minutes to go.[58] Ultimately Vergne would hold on to claim victory and establish a huge 32 point lead at the head of the hunt.[58] Evans duly claimed second to keep his title hopes alive, while Buemi slithered across the line in third to likewise maintain his place in the hunt.[58]

Race Twelve: New York City E-Prix I (13 July 2019)

The 2018/19 campaign would come to its conclusion on the streets of New York City and the Brooklyn Street Circuit, with the first of two races held on the 13 July 2019.[1]

Qualifying

New York E-Prix Poster 2019

The fifth FE Championship came to its conclusion in New York City.

Buemi proved to be the star of qualifying in New York, knowing that he would need a near-perfect race, with Vergne failing to score, to keep his title hopes alive ahead of the finale.[59] Wehrlein was his closest challenger in second, while Alex Lynn produced another strong performance to claim third.[59] For Vergne, meanwhile, it would be a very tough start to the weekend, with the Frenchman starting down in tenth, but ahead of closest challenger di Grassi.[59]

Race

For the full race report, head to the 2019 New York City E-Prix I article.

Buemi duly aced his start to claim an early lead, while Lynn swept around the outside of Wehrlein to claim second.[60] Vergne and di Grassi, meanwhile, would make it through the first lap without issue, although Vergne did lose a handful of places.[60] The Frenchman's race was about to go from bad to worse, however, as a pile-up at turn six on the second lap saw André Lotterer smack into the back of teammate Vergne.[60]

Vergne was left with a punctured tyre, and so had to limp back to the pits for a replacement.[60] He subsequently and controversially asked his team to order Lotterer to stop on circuit to cause a safety car, although the DS Techeetah team would refuse his request.[60][61] However, Vergne's safety car wish would be granted in the latter half of the race, with Lynn stopping on circuit with an electrical failure while defending second.[60]

After the restart Buemi would again try and build a lead, while Evans shot into second as da Costa, Alexander Sims and Daniel Abt tripped over one-another into turn one.[60] Evans duly hunted down Buemi, only for a lack of grip late on to cause him to slip back into the clutches of da Costa.[60] They duly held station to finish second and third behind Buemi, while Vergne took himself out of the race on the final lap with a clumsy collision with Felipe Massa.[60]

With di Grassi finishing fifth Vergne's lead atop the Championship had been cut to 22 points.[60] Victory for Buemi, meanwhile, meant that he was still in the hunt, albeit requiring victory and pole position in the finale, while Evans was a fourth pretender if he could claim the race win and points for fastest lap.[60]

Race Thirteen: New York City E-Prix II (14 July 2019)

The fifth FE Championship came to its conclusion on the 14 July 2019, with four drivers in mathematical contention for the title.[1] However, while the Brooklyn Street Circuit was unchanged, a potential curve-ball was thrown in by FE, with the officials deciding to add an additional Attack Mode boost for the final race.[62]

Qualifying

For the full qualifying report, head to the 2019 New York City E-Prix II article.

Qualifying for the season finale would see Buemi knocked out of the title hunt, with the Swiss ace having required the three points for pole position to remain in mathematical contention.[63] Pole would instead go to Sims of the BMW-Andretti team, ahead of former pretender Robin Frijns.[63] Buemi himself would start from third, while the best placed of the title pretenders appeared down in eighth in the form of Evans.[63]

Race

For the full race report, head to the 2019 New York City E-Prix II article.

Sims aced his getaway to claim an early lead, while Buemi got the jump on Frijns courtesy of starting on the cleaner side of the grid.[64] Once again, however, the race would be interrupted by early on by a collision at turn six, with Lotterer and José María López picking up huge damage.[64] Indeed, López would be forced to stop on-track a couple of laps later, leading to a full safety car intervention.[64]

The restart came and went without issue, with Sims defending heavily from Buemi, while Vergne paced di Grassi, knowing that he would be Champion if he could keep the Brazilian in sight.[64] Indeed, di Grassi would only manage to pass a handful of cars, while, out front, with Frijns diving past Buemi to claim second.[64] A lap later and the Dutchman was through past Sims and away, quickly establishing a two second lead over the Brit who was left to fend off the attentions of Buemi.[64]

Indeed, Sims would become the source of a half-race long traffic jam, allowing di Grassi to pick his further up the order.[64] Ultimately, however, his title hopes would fail on the final lap, with a collision between himself and Evans seeing both cars crash out of the race.[64] Vergne duly swept past to claim seventh and the Championship as, out front, Frijns cruised across the line to secure his second win of the season.[64]

Entrants

Nine manufacturers were granted the right to homologate designs for the 2018/19 Formula E Championship, with BMW officially partnering with the Andretti Formula E entry to promote their electric racing ambitions.[27] Shortly before the 2017/18 season it was revealed that Nissan were joining the series, replacing Renault although retaining a partnership with e.Dams.[65] There was also news of an additional team in 2018/19, as HWA Racelab, a long-time Mercedes sanctioned team in the DTM, joined the series with powertrains from Venturi.[66]
