Which drivers have completed every racing lap in Rome? What’s the biggest ever win margin in Italy? Here’s Formula E’s Rome E-Prix in numbers!
At every running of the Rome E-Prix to date, the win margin has been under a second. The closest margin of victory came at the first race of the 2021 Rome E-Prix weekend, which Jean-Eric Vergne won by 0.462 seconds.
The first two Rome E-Prix were held on a 21-turn 2.86km layout. The track was reconfigured for 2021. The lap is now 3.38km long – 0.52km longer than the original layout. It is one of the longest circuits on the Formula E calendar.
Stoffel Vandoorne set the fastest ever lap on this layout of the Rome E-Prix circuit. 1:38.484 is the time with which he secured pole position in Superpole for the first race of the 2021 race meeting.
Mitch Evans claimed the first victory of his Formula E career at the 2019 Rome E-Prix. His win was also the first for Jaguar in the series.
Antonio Giovinazzi will become the second Italian driver to compete in the Rome E-Prix this weekend. Luca Filippi is the only other Italian driver to compete in the race. Having qualified 18th in 2018, he went on to finish the race in 13th place.
From four previous Formula E races in Rome, the polesitter has retired three times. The only driver to start from pole and make the end of the race at the Rome E-Prix is Andre Lotterer, who finished as runner-up to Mitch Evans in 2019.
From the four Formula E races held in Rome so far, there have been four different winners – Sam Bird, Mitch Evans, Jean-Eric Vergne and Stoffel Vandoorne. The race has also been won by four different teams.
Five drivers are yet to score so far in the 2022 Formula E season. That list includes rookies Dan Ticktum and Antonio Giovinazzi, plus Oliver Turvey, Alexander Sims and Sergio Sette Camara.
6th is the only grid slot to score in all four Rome E-Prix. The position has provided two podium positions, both runner-up results for Lucas Di Grassi in 2018 and Alexander Sims in the second race in 2021.
Jean Eric-Vergne secured his tenth and most recent Formula E victory in the first race of the 2021 Rome E-Prix weekend.
Sebastien Buemi is the only driver who has never failed to qualify in the top 10 at every running of the Rome E-Prix to date. Andre Lotterer held a similar record, having never qualified outside of the top four in Rome until the second race of the 2021 Rome E-Prix weekend.
The record for most positions gained in a Rome E-Prix is 14. Rene Rast made up 14 positions from 20th on the grid to finish sixth in the first of 2021’s two races in the Italian city. Meanwhile, Jean-Eric Vergne is the only driver to make up positions in all four races in Rome.
Of the top 21 grid slots in Rome, 17th is the only one which is yet to give a points-scoring finish. 22nd and 23rd are the only other grid slots yet to score here.
Formula E’s first visit to Rome in 2018 marked the 40th race for the championship. 2022’s pair of races will take the total number of rounds since the first race in 2014 to 89.
Mitch Evans has scored in every running of the Rome E-Prix. He has scored 51 points in total at the circuit, seven points more than any other driver. His worst result here is 9th, recorded in 2018.
Lucas di Grassi is the only driver to out-qualify his team-mate at all four Rome E-Prix held to date. The Brazilian is yet to qualify in the top three here.
