Renault e.dams dominate the Monaco ePrix

Renault e.dams leave the Principality with a return to the winning feeling: from pole to victory, Séb Buemi scored a total of 28 points, while from the back of the grid, Nico Prost made a strong comeback to finish in the points with ninth place.
The second visit to the Monaco ePrix opened under blue skies and in sunny conditions. All drivers were eager to go on track as there was no shakedown on Friday. Séb Buemi underlined his strong form by topping both Free Practice sessions. Not only that, the Swiss driver was the first man to dip under the 53s barrier and he also bettered his own laptime from 2015 by 1.6s. Nico Prost finished second with a laptime of 53.237s in FP1 and eighth during FP2.

The championship leader drew Qualifying group 1 while his teammate got group 2. After a mature drive, Séb Buemi set the fastest lap of his group and made it to Super Pole. He then kept his head clean and went 0.237s quicker than his closest rival Lucas Di Grassi (ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport). Unfortunately for Nico Prost, he had to settle for P19 after clipping the barrier at the start of his flying lap.
