  1. How is the Championship shaping up so far?

    Despite Jean-Eric Vergne's victory in Monaco, which meant the Frenchman became the first driver to win twice after eight different winners from the first eight races, it remains incredibly tight at the top of the drivers’ championship.

    Vergne's victory moved him to top of the standings on 87 points, closely followed by his DS Techeetah teammate Andre Lotterer, who is yet to take a victory this season, lying one point behind in second.

    Paris E-Prix winner Robin Frijns of Envision Virgin sits six points from the top in third, despite missing out on the points in Monaco, with BMW’s Antonio Felix Da Costa and Audi’s Lucas Di Grassi tied on 70 points and New Zealander Mitch Evans one point behind in sixth.

    Britain’s Oliver Rowland is in eighth position in the championship standings, 28 points away from the top, with fellow Brits Sam Bird, Alexander Sims, Gary Paffett, Oliver Turvey and Alex Lynn in 10th, 16th, 18th, 19th and 20th respectively.

  2. What happened in Monaco?

    Jean-Eric Vergne became the first man to win twice in the 2018-19 Formula E season as he took the Monaco E-Prix to move top of the drivers' championship.

    There had been eight different winners from the first eight races before Vergne, who also won in China, finished ahead of Britain's Oliver Rowland.

    Ex-Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa came third for his first Formula E podium.

    With four races of the season left, France's Vergne has 87 points, with Andre Lotterer on 82 points.

  4. Could Marrakesh stage an F1 Grand Prix?

    Formula One could follow Formula E and stage a grand prix in Morocco, with Marrakesh the possible venue for a return to F1 racing in Africa.

    South Africa’s Kyalami is the favourite among the limited number of tracks – for the first time since 1993 – but F1 commercial chief Sean Bratches has revealed that there have also been discussions with Morocco.

    "We have proactively been approached by Morocco and Marrakesh to take a grand prix there," said Bratches. “There is a high degree of interest.”

    Political concerns led to the move away from Kyalami, but Bratches said F1 feels it is important to have a race in Africa, although the 1.8-mile track used in Formula E's Marrakesh race would be the shortest on the F1 calendar.

    Stirling Moss won the last F1 race in Morocco, staged near Casablanca in 1958. The sport’s new owners have recently signalled a desire to refresh their list of venues with the addition of Zandvoort in Holland and a street race in Hanoi, Vietnam to the 2020 schedule.

  6. What is Formula E?

    The FIA Formula E Championship is the world’s first all-electric single seater series and is in its fifth season of competition.

    The 13-race calendar started in December and will run until July, finishing with two races in two days in New York City.

    A new car has been introduced this season that has a longer battery life, eliminating the need to change cars during the race, while BMW and Nissan have joined the rapidly growing list of manufacturers.

    The 45-minute long races feature a number of ways to add extra excitement, with drivers able to use ‘Attack Mode’ and ‘Fan Boost’ to help overtaking while there are bonus points for pole position and fastest lap.
