First “Formula E” Grand Prix for Monaco this May before the 73rd annual Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix 2015
In just 10 days the first Monaco ePrix will take to the principality’s streets commencing May 9, 2015.
A new FIA Championship, Formula E showcases electrical-energy innovations in a racing environment. Held across 10 cities, the championship sees 10 teams – each with two drivers – go head-to-head in electric single-seater racing cars capable of speeds in excess of 225km/h.
The Monaco ePrix will be race seven in the series, and underpins the sport’s commitment to promoting new energy and sustainability.
The Monaco Grand Prix is widely regarded as one of the most important, not to mention prestigious, automobile races in the world. In its 73rd year, the event is set to attract thousands of spectators across four days, from May 21 – 24, 2015.
Held on one of the sport’s most challenging tracks, weaving through the streets of Monaco, with elevation changes, tight corners and a tunnel, the Grand Prix is the sixth round of the event calendar.
Double-reigning champion, German Nico Rosberg (Mercedes – AMG Petronas) will return to try and win here for a third time in a row, with hot competition courtesy of teammate Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen.
