First Monaco Formula E race
The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship returns to the Principality of Monaco this weekend, using an adapted version of the full iconic circuit for the first time thanks to increases in car performance and range. The event will follow strict COVID-19 protocols, created under guidance from the relevant authorities, to enable it to take place in a safe and responsible manner.
Twenty-four drivers will this year put their skills to the test through 19 turns on the fast and narrow 3.32km street circuit, tackling the famous corners of Casino Square, Mirabeau, the Grand Hotel Hairpin and Portier. Staged on a biennial basis, the Monaco E-Prix brings the thrill of all-electric racing to one of the world’s most recognizable vistas. ABB ambassador Sébastien Buemi is the most successful driver around the Monégasque streets in Formula E, having won two of the three races held.
Theodor Swedjemark, ABB’s Chief Communications and Sustainability Officer, said: “Sustainability is at the very core of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. In Monaco this weekend, the series will once again actively promote electric mobility and alternative energy solutions to contribute to reducing air pollution and fighting against climate change around the world.”
