Formula E will surge past the midway mark of the 2018/19 season following the conclusion of this weekend’s Rome E-Prix.

Season five has so far served up a thrilling spectacle, with six different drivers and teams sharing victories across the first six rounds of the campaign, while the top six drivers (all different teams) in the championship are separated by just 10 points.

Reigning champion Jean-Eric Vergne became the latest victor after prevailing in a race-long tussle with Nissan driver Oliver Rowland to hand Techeetah a win on home soil at the first-ever race to be held in Sanya.
