Oliver Rowland topped the timing pages throughout the morning of the 2019 Monaco ePrix, with a time of 49.847, a new track record for the Monte Carlo ePrix circuit.

However, it was Lucas di Grassi who was fastest in Free Practice 1 after Rowland set the early pace before attack modes were used that saw the times tumble down. Sam Bird was less than a tenth off his rival in second, with Mitch Evans and Alexander Sims making up the top four despite an off at the Nouvelle chicane before re-joining.

Later in the morning, Rowland was fastest in Free Practice 2, beating Jean-Eric Vergne‘s time that held top spot for most of the thirty-minute session. Andre Lotterer was 0.011s off his team-mate, while Alex Lynn had a solid session to end fourth. Daniel Abt spun at Saint Devote on his way to ninth fastest while di Grassi could manage no better than fifth, as he was two tenths off the pace.

Sebastien Buemi, the only driver to have won in Monaco in Formula E history, was a lowly twenty-first and 1.3 seconds off his team-mate’s time.
