Review: Fascinating facts from the Cape Town E-Prix

Hankook makes it possible: Despite a safety car and two Full Course Yellow phases, the Cape Town E-Prix was still the fastest race in the history of Formula E, with an average speed of 132.199 km/h. The previous record stood at 132.116 km/h and was set at the 2022 Mexico City E-Prix.

Antonio Felix da Costa is the first driver to win Formula E races with four different teams.

The podium has featured at least one Porsche driver after each of the first five races of Season 9. No other team has ever made such a successful start to the season.

The same three drivers occupied the podium at both the Hyderabad E-Prix and the Cape Town E-Prix – another first in Formula E.

The pole-sitter failed to win the race for the eighth time in a row.

For decades, Hankook has been one of the first ports of call when it comes to international motorsport. Hankook supplies its race tyres to globally-renowned series, high-class junior formats and popular grassroot events. With new collaborations and partnerships, the company is constantly enhancing its status as a global player on the motorsport scene. Since the 2023 season, Hankook has been the new and exclusive technical partner and tyre supplier of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. In close cooperation with Formula E, the iON Race was developed for the world championship. Roughly 30 percent of the high-performance tyre is made of sustainable materials. With this commitment, Hankook is taking another pioneering step towards energy efficiency and sustainability in motorsport. The premium tyre maker has also agreed a further collaboration with Italian sports car manufacturer Lamborghini Squadra Corse and has been official technical partner and exclusive tyre supplier of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo since 2023. Hankook’s portfolio covers a broad spectrum. This includes the 24H Series powered by Hankook, one of the most prestigious endurance series in the world, as well as the FIA ERC4 Junior Championship on the rally scene. Hankook also supports popular touring car championship TCR Italy, many high-class one-make cups for a wide range of renowned manufacturers, junior single-seater series, and assorted international racing events with race tyres and technical know-how.
