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.
