BEST QUALIFIER

With a new Qualifying format shaking things up this season, it would take a season to define who would master the high-pressure art of getting through the Group stages and battling their way through the Duels to the top of the grid. Come the final in Seoul, Mercedes-EQ’s Stoffel Vandoorne, DS TECHEETAH’s Jean-Eric Vergne, ROKiT Venturi Racing’s Edoardo Mortara, DS TECHEETAH’s Antonio Felix da Costa, Envision Racing’s Nick Cassidy, and Avalanch Andretti’s Jake Dennis all had two Julius Baer Pole Positions. With that, the award went to the driver that had reached the front row a total of six times this year.

ENGINEER OF THE YEAR AWARD

There’s no doubt that the drivers on track give it everything but Formula E is all about teams, and no one can win without the support of those supporting them. Engineers and strategists are key to the success of a team and our next award, celebrates the engineer of the year.
