Monaco track layout revealed

Formula E, FIA and the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM) has revealed the track layout for the 2022 Monaco E-Prix, which is Round 6 of the World Championship.

The 19 turn, 3.337 km track will see the cars climb the hill at Sainte Devote and travel through the iconic Place du Casino, Mirabeau, Grand Hotel Hairpin and Portier.

DS TECHEETAH’s Antonio Felix Da Costa claimed victory last season in one of the most exciting races in the history of Formula E with a overtake at the exit of the tunnel on the final lap of the race- the series’ first on the full Monaco circuit.

Between the top six runners, there were 28 overtakes during the race. The circuit last year incorporated a modified chicane at Turn 11, which will disappear this year to make way for the traditional track.

The change of layout is to align with the highest standards of motorsport, it shows once again how Formula E continues to progress.

The 2021 Monaco E-Prix remains one of the finest races in Formula E history with an unprecedented number of overtakes. Our drivers are used to driving in street circuits which is why Monaco, one of the most iconic circuits in the world that all drivers know inside out, is particularly suitable for showcasing the unique style of Formula E motorsport. We can’t wait to see what the 2022 race and the drama that awaits.

Frederic Espinos, Sporting Director, Formula E.

Using the full Monaco track layout successfully last year was a major step forward for the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. This year, we are taking the final step, removing the minor modifications that were made for Formula E, so that we can to see our drivers and cars performing on the historical layout. This is another major achievement for our discipline and we look forward to another exciting race on the streets of Monaco.

Javier Maffioli, Formula E Head of Even Operations at the FIA.
