The second half of the Formula E season begins this weekend with the Monaco ePrix. After a record breaking fan attendance Round 7 and 8 in Berlin. Monaco is expected to reach fan capacity. As we head into Round 9, TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team retains the championship lead in the Teams’ world championship. TAG Heuer also leads the Drivers’ standings with driver Pascal Wehrlein holding a 4 point advantage over Berlin winner Nick Cassidy. Cassidy (Envision Racing) has closed in on the championship leader having collected 68 points in the last four races compared to Wherlein’s 20 points.

The Monaco circuit is the crown jewel of street circuits in the motorsport world. These streets have hosted some of the biggest moments in motor racing history. Wherlein will look to add to that legacy to maintain his lead in the championship standings. Last years champion Stoffel Vandoorne won’t like the position he is in heading into the weekend. Last years champion sits eleventh in the championship. Monaco offers what may be his last opportunity to pivot his season to get back in the championship running. Vandoorne currently holds 25 points, 74 points behind the championship leader. In the teams championship TAG Heuer Porsche holds a 15 point lead over Envision Racing.
