‘Monaco was a painful experience. We can’t lose more ground,’ says Mercedes-EQ Team Principal Ian James

Mercedes-EQ endured a tough Monaco E-Prix weekend with qualifying setbacks hampering Nyck de Vries and Stoffel Vandoorne’s progress from the off, leading both drivers to ultimately fail to score points. Mercedes-EQ headed to Monaco sitting pretty, with Nyck de Vries heading teammate Stoffel Vandoorne after his victory in Valencia – and no doubt both would have been among the favourites for a top result in the principality. Group 1 in qualifying always has a say, though, and de Vries and Vandoorne each suffered. De Vries, however, could only blame himself for a costly error which saw him lining up at the back of the grid. Mercedes still narrowly lead the way, though de Vries slipped to second and Vandoorne sixth. The race itself was phenomenal and all credit to Formula E for for pulling it off.
