Join us for live coverage from Round 8 of the 2024 Formula E season as we go to Monaco for the Monaco E-Prix

Evans finally finds himself on the top step

A win in Monaco means a lot for anyone β€” but for Mitch Evans it’s been a particularly long time coming. Evans has graced the podium on his last three outings in Monaco, but had struggled to get his hands on that elusive first place trophy.

“Monaco is a very special part of the world,” said Mitch Evans after the race. “It’s nice to have my name up there with everyone else.”

The Top 10

As the chequered flag falls, the top ten are as follows:

  1. Mitch Evans
  2. Nick Cassidy
  3. Stoffel Vandoorne
  4. Jean Eric Vergne
  5. Pascal Wehrlein
  6. Oliver Rowland
  7. Antonio Felix da Costa
  8. Sacha Fenestraz
  9. Max Gunther
  10. Norman Nato

Lap 31/31: Evans wins!

Finally, it’s victory in Monaco for Mitch Evans! After so many near misses, the Kiwi leads Nick Cassidy to a Jaguar 1-2, whilst Stoffel Vandoorne rounds out the podium in P3.

Lap 30/31: Hughes handed a penalty

The McLaren driver takes a penalty for causing a collision, following the incident with Nico Muller.

Meanwhile, with just two laps to go, the leading order remains unchanged. Mitch Evans has a fairly comfortable two-second advantage over Nick Cassidy… the top step of the podium is firmly within his sights.

Lap 27/31: Rowland breaks up the Porsches

Rowland gets between the two Porsche drivers as he leapfrogs Da Costa to take P6. The leading order remains unchanged, as Jaguar continues to edge ever closer to a 1-2.

Two laps added

As the race nears its conclusion, two laps have been added to compensate for the time lost under the safety cars.

Lap 26/29: Green flag

Racing gets back underway in Monaco as Mitch Evans holds onto the lead. The Jaguar driver looks like he could be on his way to his first victory in the Principality.

Lap 25/29: Safety car!

With just a handful of laps left to go, the safety car makes its reappearance after Hughes and Muller make contact. It’s the end of the race for Nico Muller, as the marshalls work to recover his car.

Lap 22/29: Other teams copy Jaguar’s trick

It looks like the other teams have begun to catch on to Jaguar’s tactics. Behind the two Jaguars sits both DS Penskes; behind the Penskes are both Porsches. Nissan also looks to be in on it, Rowland and Fenestraz following the Porsches one after the other.

Lap 21/29: Da Costa on the charge

You’d never guess that Da Costa had been tangled up with Buemi on Lap 4. The Porsche driver has worked his way up to P6 to sit behind his teammate.

Lap 20/29: Gunther loses out

Max Gunther tries to tackle Pascal Wehrlein for P5, the Maserati hot on the heels of the Porsche. But it all unravels for Gunther, as he goes wide as finds himself slipping down to P9.

Lap 19/29: Two by two

Seemingly racing in pairs, behind the front-running Jaguars sits the two DS Penskes. Vandoorne continues to lead Vergne, but we could see the pair battle it out for a podium position further down the line.

Lap 17/29: A Jaguar 1-2?

Jaguar is a team in complete harmony, as its race-winning strategy begins to shine through. As Cassidy opts for his second Attack Mode, Evans swiftly slips into the lead, Cassidy slotting back into P2. Jaguar looks on track for a 1-2 finish in the Principality…

Lap 15/29: Cassidy gets ahead

Now it’s Nick Cassidy in the lead, the Kiwi getting past his teammate. Cassidy opens up almost a two-second gap to Evans.

Lap 14/29: Advantage, Jaguar

At the half-way point, it’s a Jaguar 1-2, with Mitch Evans leading Nick Cassidy. Polesitter Pascal Wehrlein finds himself down in P5, yet to recover the positions he lost when he initially took Attack Mode.

Lap 11/29: Trouble for Jake Dennis

The Andretti driver has damage to his front wing, and has dropped to the very back of the pack as a result. Dennis’ car looks in bad shape as the Brit struggles his way around the circuit.

Dennis heads to the pitlane for a replacement front wing, but that’s his race-winning chances well and truly over.

Lap 10/29: Evans takes the lead

The Jaguar driver snatches the lead from Stoffel Vandoorne as the Belgian driver opts for Attack Mode. Vandoorne’s not alone in taking Attack Mode, with much of the grid opting to take the mandatory power increase.

Lap 9/29: Action resumes

Vandoorne holds onto the lead as the safety car comes in β€” but Evans is quick to put up a challenge. Cassidy sits a little further back, holding position ahead of Vandoorne’s teammate Jean Eric Vergne.

Lap 8/29: Safety car conditions

We’re still under safety car conditions, with Stoffel Vandoorne leading the pack. The DS Penske driver is followed by Mitch Evans, who is in turn followed by teammate Nick Cassidy.

Meanwhile, Norman Nato finds himself at the very back, behind the McLaren of Jake Hughes. Taylor Barnard, in his first Formula E race, has worked his way up to P16.

Lap 5/29: A big shunt for Mortara

The safety car has been deployed after Edoardo Mortara suffered a heavy collision at the Swimming Pool Chicane, sending debris across the track. The Mahindra driver was running alongside the ERT of Dan Ticktum before making heavy contact with the barrier.

Thankfully, Mortara is out of the car and okay β€” but his race has come to a very premature end.

Lap 4/29: Chaos at the hairpin

Yellow flags are out after Buemi and Da Costa come together at the hairpin. Norman Nato is having a similarly miserable time of it, the Andretti driver having picked up damage to his front wing.

Lap 3/29: Wehrlein takes Attack Mode

After a relatively clean start, which saw the top pecking order remain unchanged, Wehrlein is the first to take Attack Mode. The Porsche driver slips down to P5, as Vandoorne inherits the race lead.

Lap 1/29: Lights out

Pascal Wehrlein gets away well, but Stoffel Vandoorne is quickly on his tail. Evans looks just as hungry, staying close to Vandoorne’s DS Penske.

As the back of the grid bunches together into Turn 1, Nyck De Vries picks up some damage to his front wing.

Dennis, down in P17, attempts to make a move on De Vries as they head into the Nouvelle Chicane, but he can’t quite make it work.

The championship as it stands

With less five minutes to go, and with the 2024 season now at the half-way point, let’s take a look at what’s at stake in Monaco.

Pascal Wehrlein leads the championship, but only just. With 89 points to his name, he’s evenly tied with Jake Dennis, and holds the top spot in the standings only by virtue of his race wins.

Nissan driver Oliver Rowland sits in third, just nine points behind the frontrunners. It’ll be a tough call for Rowland to close the gap in the Principality, as he starts the race from P15.

Taylor Barnard takes the reins

After Sam Bird sustained an injury in FP1, McLaren reserve driver Taylor Barnard jumped into the car from FP2 onwards. The Monaco E-Prix will be the 19-year-old’s Formula E race debut, providing Barnard with a golden opportunity to gain some experience in the series.

Barnard will start from the back of the grid, whilst teammate Jake Hughes starts from P16.

Starting Grid

Pascal Wehrlein starts on pole, after beating DS Penske’s Stoffel Vandoorne to the front of the grid.

Meanwhile Jake Dennis, who sits on equal points with Wehrlein in the Driver’s Championship, starts much further back on the grid following a disappointing qualifying for Andretti.
