First title on the Hankook iON Race: Jean-Éric Vergne is the ABB Driver of Progress in Monaco

Frenchman Jean-Éric Vergne is the first recipient of the new accolade “ABB Driver of Progress”. DS Penske driver Vergne started the race in Monaco from 22nd place on the grid. The 33-year-old showed plenty of fighting spirit and, thanks in part to the very good performance of the Hankook iON Race, managed to climb 15 places before crossing the finish line seventh. The 20,000 spectators in Monaco witnessed a total of 116 overtaking manoeuvres from the Formula E drivers.
