Circuit: Formula E Monaco ePrix
Date: Saturday, May 09 2015
The Monaco Formula E race, or ePrix, takes place on May 9 2015 and forms the seventh of 11 races for the inaugural season, and the first to take place in Europe. The track uses a modified configuration of the iconic GP street circuit. At just under 2km in length, the Formula E cars will use the same famous start/finish line before turning right and immediately towards the harbour, where they’ll tackle a new hairpin before rejoining with the more familiar track configuration, including the well-known Tabac and Swimming Pool corners.
The Monaco ePrix will take place on May 9 2015 with practice, qualifying and the race all taking place over the course of the day to minimise the disruption to the host city.
Jarno Trulli, Trulli Formula E
““I think it’s a reasonably good track and obviously the location is fantastic. It takes in half of the Formula 1 circuit, which is enough for the Formula E car and I’m sure it’s going to be good for overtaking. You can see that going down into the first corner there is a hairpin, then we head rearwards down towards the tunnel, where there is another hard braking with a possible overtaking point and then another hairpin. From there you head back towards Tabac and the Swimming Pool corners, which in Formula 1 were very exciting and challenging. In Formula E cars they will be easier, but nevertheless still a challenge, especially the exit of the Swimming Pool, which is going to be pretty slippery. The last two corners are familiar from the usual Monte Carlo circuit so all in all it looks pretty exciting.””
