Circuit…
Many of us will be familiar with the Monaco F1 circuit but Formula E and the FIA have made a few subtle tweaks for this weekend. The most significant of these is to the chicane on the exit of the tunnel where it will see drivers facing a slower, more narrower corner profile. The Attack Mode, on the outside of Turn 4, should also prove a challenge as drivers head off line and try to rejoin. The essence of the circuit though remains the same with 19 iconic corners to tackle over a 3.318km distance, just a fraction less than the F1 layout (3.337km).

Home turf/new turf…
Many of the drivers on the Formula E grid call Monte Carlo home but only three have never raced here before; Jake Dennis, Tom Blomqvist and our very own Nick Cassidy. Learning a new track is never easy but with no shakedown this weekend it makes things even harder for those who have never turned a wheel on the Monaco asphalt. As such, expect FP1 to be a tentative session, especially with no run off areas to fall back on.

And of course, you don’t have to just watch the action, you can also play your part by voting for Nick Cassidy and Robin Frijns on FanBoost. Simply click here
