The Monaco ePrix is a biennial automobile race of the Formula E championship in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

Circuit[edit]

On 18 September 2014 it was announced that Formula E would be racing on a shorter version of the original Monaco Grand Prix circuit for the 2014–15 season.[1] This version misses out the hill, Casino square, the iconic hairpin, the famous tunnel and the chicane.

Monaco was not scheduled to be on the calendar for the second season of Formula E because it takes the slot on the calendar filled by the Historic Grand Prix at Monaco every other year.[2] Series boss Alejandro Agag revealed that a race in Paris replaced the Monaco ePrix for 2016, but Monaco was held again in the 2016–17 season.

It was announced that for the 2019 running of the event, the full Grand Prix layout would be used in favor over the shortened Formula E circuit.
