Imperial driving his Mercedes electric single-seater, Belgian driver Stoffel Vandoorne won the Monaco Tour of the Formula E World Championship on Saturday. He took the opportunity to steal the reins of the general classification from France’s Jean-Eric Vergne (DS Techeetah), third behind New Zealand’s Pullman Mitch Evans (Jaguar).

Never two without three! After Berlin in 2020 and Rome last year, Stoffel Vandoorne took his third Formula E victory.

Long-time Monaco national, Kortrijk (30), won at home on Saturday: the winner of the fifth Monaco e-Prix.

Fourth on the starting grid, he managed to beat the three drivers in front of him by managing his energy perfectly thanks to the profitable strategy put in place by the Mercedes EQ team.

For the first time in the principality, Pullman did not turn his advantage into a success. Mitch Evans (Jaguar) was about to cross the rescue line after 30 laps at 1″ 285 from the champion of the day.

Jean-Eric Vergne, retains his rank: third at the end as at the beginning. Thus, the only Frenchman in the ring, winner here in 2019, misses the opportunity to throw Marseille’s vote a second time at the foot of the rock.

“The Complete Yellow Cycle” (Partially neutralizing sweat, editor’s note) Triggered immediately after executing Attack Mode (temporary overload) It prevents me from playing to win in the end.”laments the #25 DS Techeetah driver who dumped him from the top of the provisional hierarchy by Vandoorne, and he’s now leading 6 lengths ahead. “We’re still getting good points. Today, I’m not thinking about the championship, just the next race where we hope to finally find the way to win.”.

The best driver for the Monegasque Venturi team is called Lucas Di Grassi. The Brazilian finished 6. On the other hand, Swiss Eduardo Mortara disappointed: after being betrayed by the mechanics, the 2021 vice world champion had to throw his arms up at the end of the race.
