Finally a race in rain, it should have been red flag instead of yellow for having at least a final lap in green.

I see that Frijns won the race and there were tons of crashes since the cars seem to have no grip in wet conditions. Interesting looking race!

Another horrible tight track which can only produce crashes in the wet.

But they say those tyres are prepared to race in rain as well, so they don't have to pit for it.

This may sound odd but I find Monaco is too big a track for these cars. Or it's the comparison to F1 cars going into St. Devote

I dont enjoy the short Monaco track. Its just wrong! And it produced a boring race. I fell asleep during it though so maybe missed any excitement.

It wasn’t the best race but not the worst either. The Ste Devote turn needs to be opened up slightly, it is far too tight and doesn’t allow cars a switch back heading to the harbor hairpin.

It could have been a cool battle between Evans and Vergne but the narrow track doesn't let overtakes.

Very true. Despite it's narrowness and that stupid chicane, it was exciting to see the cars sliding around what was an interesting circuit. the rain at the end made it more entertaining.

2020/1 Formula E Entry list released.
The official entry list for the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E season has been released by the governing body, ahead of Mercedes and Porsche joining the grid.

The 2019/20 campaign will feature FE’s biggest grid to date with 24 cars, up from 22 last season when HWA was added the field as a Venturi Racing customer outfit.

HWA’s entry is replaced by the factory Mercedes effort as expected, with HWA continuing to operate the race team on behalf of the manufacturer.

Mercedes’ driver line-up for its debut season in the electric single seater category will be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show on Wednesday.

Porsche formally launched its first FE car with a livestream event on gaming platform Twitch last month.

The team will field Andre Lotterer and Neel Jani as its first FE drivers, with the team being led by a unique four-person management structure.
Full entry list:

Audi Sport ABT

BMW Andretti

Dragon

DS Techeetah

Envision Virgin Racing

Jaguar Racing

Nissan e.dams

NIO

Porsche

Mahindra Racing

Venturi Racing

Mercedes
