Review: Fascinating facts from the Diriyah E-Prix

Pascal Wehrlein is the first German ever to top the overall standings in Formula E.

Sébastien Buemi claimed the 15th pole position of his Formula E career on Friday. The last time the Swiss qualified fastest was more than two years ago at the 2019 New York City E-Prix.

Jake Dennis and Pascal Wehrlein have both claimed three podiums in the first three races of the season. Only Lucas di Grassi (Season 1 and Season 2) and Sébastien Buemi (Season 3) had achieved this before them.

After Maserati MSG Racing, the NIO 333 Racing FE Team and the Nissan Formula E Team picked up their first points on Saturday, only the ABT Cupra Formula E Team is yet to score points this season.
