Motorsport is characterised by highs and lows, and this was especially apparent on Saturday in an extremely tense and eventful Monaco E-Prix. The race was contested on the Grand Prix Circuit for the first time in the history of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. "It's been great to see Formula E return to the streets of Monaco," said Team Principal Ian James afterwards. "Racing in a place like this is always special, and it's one of the many reasons that makes the series so unique. This Monaco E-Prix delivered some amazing racing to the fans."
There were plenty of overtaking manoeuvres and standout moments over the course of the 26 laps, but not for the Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team; the seventh round of the season brought two retirements and a zero points haul. However, the team, which has already won three races this season, is not letting this get them down. After all, it is setbacks and disappointments such as these from which the team can learn the most and bounce back stronger in the future.
