The amazing run has continued – eight races with eight different winners.

The ninth race of an incredible 2018-19 Formula E season comes on Saturday in glamorous Monaco – with live coverage across the BBC.

The last race in Paris was staged in wet conditions with Robin Frijns of the Netherlands taking his first victory.

That success also took him top of the drivers’ championship, one point ahead of Germany’s Andre Lotterer with four races of the season left.

“The last Formula E event was the toughest race of my career so to come away with the win was an amazing feeling,” said Frijns.

“Although we’re leading the championship it doesn’t change our approach, and there’s still a long way to go with many points up for grabs.”

There are also full replays of the race available on the BBC Red Button later from 19:00 to 21:00 and from 21:35 to 23:35 on Saturday and then from 21:00 to 23:00 on Sunday, 12 May.

This will be the third time a Formula E race has been held in Monaco and the 22 drivers will race on a shortened, modified version of the iconic tight street track used in Formula 1.

The 12-turn 1.765km clockwise circuit uses the same famous start/finish line as F1 before turning right and immediately heading towards the harbour, then rejoining the more familiar track configuration, including the well-known Tabac and Swimming Pool sections.
