Munich. This coming weekend, the ABB FIA Formula E Championship will be in the Principality of Monaco (MON) for the ninth race of the season. Our preview provides you with the most importance facts about the circuit and the key factors for a successful race.

 

TRACK FACTS MONACO.

Circuit length

1.765 km, shortest track of the season. Clockwise.

Corners

5 left and 7 right handers. Slowest corner: T3 (approx. 40 km/h). Fastest corner: T7 (approx. 160 km/h). Many different types of corners – not typical for Formula E.

Track surface

Very even, as it’s 90 percent identical to the F1 track.

Grip level

Higher than in Paris and Rome, although leaves may make the track slippery and be a disadvantage for qualifying group 1.

Circuit layout

Relatively high average speed. Very short straights make overtaking very difficult.

Tyre wear

More tyre wear on the right side despite racing clockwise.

Attack Zone

ATTACK MODE is activated on a straight. This means there will be hardly any time loss.

Pit lane

Identical to the F1 pitlane.

Risk of crashes

Very high.

Key factors

Grip, car balance, qualifying performance / grid positions.

 

 

Quotes ahead of the Monaco E-Prix:

 

Roger Griffiths (Team Principal BMW i Andretti Motorsport):

“After the low grip, bumpy streets of Paris, the Monaco track will be a stark contrast. Much smoother, more grip, yet tight and challenging. Overtaking is tough here; good grid positioning will be key to having a strong race. Lap times will be short, and it will definitely be interesting to see how much the FE car has improved since the last visit two years ago. With the quick turn around between the European races this places a premium on efficient preparation and forward planning.”

 

Alexander Sims (#27 BMW iFE.18):

“I am really curious about what it will be like to drive on the streets of Monaco for the first time. Of course, I have seen loads of races there on TV and I do feel more familiar with the location than I did ahead of some other races. I hope that I can get myself and my car set up quickly for the circuit, and I really hope to do well in qualifying. That is the key to finally driving a smooth race again.”

 

António Félix da Costa (#28 BMW iFE.18):

“It is exciting to be coming to Monaco to drive in a location with such a great history of racing. Formula E is a new type of racing and is adding a new chapter to the history of Monaco. I am looking forward to putting on a good show for the spectators. I hope that the layout and the surface will suit the BMW iFE.18.”

 

The FANBOOST vote.

FANBOOST gives Formula E fans the opportunity to vote for their favourite driver and award them an extra boost of power during the race. The five drivers with the most FANBOOST votes are awarded a significant burst of power, which they can deploy in a five-second window during the second half of the race. Fans can vote for their favourite driver in the six days prior to, and leading up to 15 minutes into, each race. Each fan can vote once per day. There are three ways to vote: Online at https://fanboost.fiaformulae.com/, via the official Formula E App or on Twitter using the hashtag #FANBOOST plus the drivers first and last name as a one-word hashtag.

The BMW i Fleet

BMW i is “Official Vehicle Partner” of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in Season 5. Spearheading the BMW i fleet is the BMW i8 Coupe Safety Car, modified with BMW M components (combined fuel consumption: 1.8 l/100 km; combined energy consumption 14.0 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 42 g/km)*. As well as the BMW i8 Coupe, the BMW i fleet also includes the BMW i3s (combined fuel consumption: 0.0 l/100 km; combined energy consumption: 14.3 kWh; combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km)* as “Race Director Car” and the BMW 530e iPerformance (combined fuel consumption: 2.2-2.1 l/100 km; combined energy consumption: 13.6-13.3 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 49-47 g/km)* in its role as “Medical Car”.

CO2 EMISSIONS & CONSUMPTION.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emission and energy consumption shown were determined in the standardized test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.
The values are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.
Effective 06.12.2018
Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and fromDeutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, and under https://www.dat.de/co2/

CO2 emission information.

Os valores do consumo de combustível, das emissões de CO2 e de consumo de energia aqui apresentados foram determinados de acordo com o Regulamento (CE) 715/2007 na versão aplicável no momento da homologação. Os valores referem-se à versão base de um veículo na Alemanha e na gama apresentada é considerado o equipamento opcional e os diferentes tamanho de jantes e pneus para a versão selecionada.

Os valores dos veículos já se baseiam no novo Regulamento WLTP e são traduzidos para valores equivalentes aos do NEDC de modo a garantir a comparação entre os veículos. [Relativamente a estes veículos, no que se refere a impostos relacionados com o veículo ou outras taxas baseadas (no mínimo, entre outros) nas emissões de CO2, os valores de CO2 podem ser diferentes dos valores aqui apresentados.]

As especificações da eficiência de CO2 são determinadas de acordo com a Diretiva 1999/94/CE e o regulamento europeu na sua versão atual aplicável. Os valores apresentados são baseados no consumo de combustível, valores de CO2 e de consumo de energia de acordo com o ciclo NEDC para a classificação.

Para mais informações sobre os dados oficiais do consumo de combustível e as emissões específicas de CO2 dos automóveis de passageiros novos, consulte as diretrizes sobre o consumo de combustível, emissões de CO2 e consumo de energia elétrica de automóveis de passageiros novos, disponíveis gratuitamente em todos os Concessionários BMW.
