Race

Nicolas Prost (e.Dams Renault) wins the Miami ePrix.

ABOUT THE race

"I thought I was being really careful with my energy, but just as I was focusing on trying to get past [Daniel] Abt for the lead, I looked in my mirrors and thought, 'Woah! Who's that guy coming up really strong behind?!' I was lucky, too, because I touched the wall towards the end, but it feels really good to win."

Nicolas Prost, e Dams Renault

Race

A crowd of 20,000 is expected for the Miami ePrix.

ABOUT THE city

The FIA Miami ePrix is precisely the type of international event that will showcase Miami-Dade as a world-class destination. All Formula E events take place in one-day in order to minimise disruption to the city.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez

ABOUT THE race

Pole-winner Jean-Eric Vergne: "I scored some good points [three bonus points] and it's a good position to start the race. Let's wait to see what happens then."

Jean-Eric Vergne (Andretti Autosport)

Pole position for Jean-Eric Vergne

ABOUT THE race

For a driver , it's always interesting to discover new technologies with which we will get to work in the future.

Loïc Duval, Dragon racing

Race

Sam Bird (Virgin Racing) in turn 1

ABOUT THE race

The hard bit comes now, to stay at the top. We took the win but we were not the fastest car on the track. In Formula E, you don’t need to have the fastest car to win.

Antonio Felix da Costa, Amlin Aguri

backstage

Ongoing track preparations mean the start of Free Practice has had to be delayed

ABOUT THE race

Although Loic (Duval) hasn’t driven the car, he has a lot of experience with similar systems. I’m pretty sure we have great drivers who will be challenging for the win.

Oriol Servia, managing director at Dragon Racing

ABOUT THE race

In Formula E, the biggest difference will be conserving energy. This is very different from any kind of other racing I’ve done.

Sam Speed, Andretti

  • 14.03.15 - 17h16
    Third-placed Abt: "I have so many emotions after that race! We've come so close to the podium so many times, and now finally we've achieved it! Of course it would have been nice to win, but I needed to save my energy towards the end, and there couldn't be a better place than Miami to score my first Formula E podium."
  • 14.03.15 - 17h13
    Runner-up Speed: "It was a big learning experience out there. The Andretti team gave me a great car, which made my job much easier - and I just did what the guys told me to do! Unfortunately, Nico and I had the same strategy and we both left all our energy for the last lap, but the race was a lot of fun. We stuck to the plan and it worked out great!"
  • 14.03.15 - 17h08
    Race-winner Prost: "I thought I was being really careful with my energy, but just as I was focusing on trying to get past [Daniel] Abt for the lead, I looked in my mirrors and thought, 'Woah! Who's that guy coming up really strong behind?!' I was lucky, too, because I touched the wall towards the end, but it feels really good to win."

    Meanwhile, e.DAMS further extend their lead in the teams' rankings.
  • 14.03.15 - 17h05
    Victory vaults Prost into the championship lead, seven points clear of erstwhile leader Di Grassi, with Bird third and Piquet Jr up to fourth ahead of the off-colour Buemi.
  • 14.03.15 - 17h01
    "I had so much power in the bank, man!" quips gallant runner-up Speed.
  • 14.03.15 - 17h00
    Piquet Jr secured fastest lap and the couple of extra bonus points that accompany it.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h58
    D'Ambrosio, Piquet, da Costa, Duval - from all the way down in 18th on the grid - Bird, Di Grassi and Duran complete the top ten.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h56
    Ex-Formula 1 ace Speed finishes a brilliant second on his Formula E debut, with Abt completing the podium.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h55
    So that is Nico Prost's breakthrough Formula E victory - he even escaped a brush with the wall on the final lap!
  • 14.03.15 - 16h53
    Speed is all over Prost on the final lap, but double yellow flags in the last corner make for something of an anti-climax.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h51
    Prost is past Abt for the race lead with just two laps to go at Freedom Tower, with Speed following through mere seconds later!
  • 14.03.15 - 16h50
    D'Ambrosio, Piquet and Vergne have all passed Di Grassi, who drops from fourth place.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h49
    Four laps to go, and there is nothing in it between the top three!
  • 14.03.15 - 16h48
    The unstoppable Speed just keeps on coming. Textbook move up the inside of Di Grassi for P3 into Turn Five; with six laps to go, the American's next target is Prost in second.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h47
    A couple of casualty updates: Senna suffered broken suspension, while Sarrazin encountered a gearbox issue in his second car.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h45
    Piquet is really on the move - he has now displaced Vergne from P6.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h44
    D'Ambrosio has overtaken Vergne for fifth, while a little further back, Piquet has similarly put a move on Bird for seventh.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h42
    Piquet pinches fastest lap.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h41
    Yes, the three-way tussle for the lead has become a four-way fight - and as Vergne can attest, Speed clearly knows how to overtake round here...
  • 14.03.15 - 16h39
    Fourth-placed Speed is gaining on the leading trio with ten laps to the chequered flag.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h38
    Prost is looking pretty feisty as he tries to find a way around new leader Abt. Di Grassi is holding a watching brief in third.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h37
    Senna looks to be out of the race - he is in the pits and out of the car.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h35
    Speed moves past team-mate Vergne for fourth position into Turn Five - and he has more usable energy remaining to-boot!
  • 14.03.15 - 16h35
    New fastest lap for ninth-placed Piquet.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h34
    There's still absolutely nothing in it in this scrap for supremacy!
  • 14.03.15 - 16h33
    With the pit-stops shaking out, Abt leads the race from Prost, Di Grassi, erstwhile pace-setter Vergne, Scott Speed and Jerome d'Ambrosio.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h32
    Drive-through penalty for Chandhok for using maximum power.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h31
    Drama for Bird as the Virgin Racing car slows - has he run out of usable energy?
  • 14.03.15 - 16h29
    Vergne immediately dives for the pits - he's the first front-runner to stop.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h27
    A mistake from Sarrazin has given championship leader Di Grassi hope of gaining a position in the battle for P5.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h27
    Contact in the battle for the lead as Bird turns up the wick. The Briton dives up the inside into Turn Five.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h26
    17 laps down, 22 to go - who will be the first to blink when the pit-stops start?
  • 14.03.15 - 16h25
    Third-placed Prost currently has the most energy left of the leading sextet.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h24
    Senna is the next up to depose Duran, advancing to 11th spot.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h23
    Title contender Buemi moves past Duran to infiltrate the top ten.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h22
    No - pro that he is, the Frenchman courteously moves out of the way and the order at the sharp end remains the same.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h21
    The leaders are coming up to lap the delayed Pic - could this result in any changes of position?
  • 14.03.15 - 16h19
    Wheel-to-wheel action back in the pack as Duval pulls alongside Senna but can't quite make the move stick. Meanwhile, Buemi relieves Vitantonio Liuzzi of 11th position.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h18
    The pace up at the front is relentless, with a train of cars chasing Vergne...
  • 14.03.15 - 16h17
    Now fastest lap has gone the way of new boy Loic Duval, as he joins the Buemi-Senna scrap.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h16
    With nine laps on the board, race leader Vergne has used more energy than his immediate pursuers - that may prove to be significant...
  • 14.03.15 - 16h15
    New fastest lap for Mahindra driver Senna, who employs his FanBoost as he sets his sights on Sebastien Buemi ahead.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h13
    The action is fast-and-furious in the Sunshine State!
  • 14.03.15 - 16h12
    And as we say that, Di Grassi makes fastest lap his own...
  • 14.03.15 - 16h11
    JEV is now having to defend from the flying Bird, who is very much on the attack as he seeks to eat into Di Grassi's championship lead.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h10
    Prost sets fastest lap.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h09
    Vergne leads Bird, Prost, Daniel Abt and Stephane Sarrazin - they are your current top five.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h08
    We have an early spinner - it's Formula E returnee Charles Pic in the Dragon Racing machine.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h07
    Lights-out! Vergne sprints into the lead, with three-abreast behind for P2 into Turn One...
  • 14.03.15 - 16h07
    Sam Bird snatches second place from Nicolas Prost only a handful of corners into the race.
  • 14.03.15 - 16h03
    The cars are on their way to the starting grid now...
  • 14.03.15 - 15h58
    The grid is starting to clear in Miami. There are only five minutes to go lights-out...
  • 14.03.15 - 15h50
    The FanBoost dates are in, and in Miami they go to pole-sitter Jean-Eric Vergne (Andretti), Salvador Duran (Amlin Aguri) and Bruno Senna (Mahindra Racing). The Brazilian in particular is sure to appreciate that 30kW extra power, beginning the race down in 15th spot.
  • 14.03.15 - 15h43
    New boy Scott Speed quips that he was 'holding on for dear life' in qualifying. The Andretti driver will start the race from a very respectable tenth place following Heidfeld's penalty.
  • 14.03.15 - 15h39
    The luckless Nick Heidfeld and Karun Chandhok have both been demoted to the back of the starting grid for power usage infringements during qualifying.
  • 14.03.15 - 15h21
    Meanwhile, what can Sam Bird do to dent Lucas Di Grassi's 10-point championship lead? The Briton starts three places ahead of his Brazilian rival in Florida...
  • 14.03.15 - 15h17
    ...Messrs. Buemi, Chandhok, Senna and da Costa chief amongst them.
  • 14.03.15 - 15h15
    There are some big names well down the order with much work to do in the race...
  • 14.03.15 - 15h07
    We're on countdown to race time now in Miami - under an hour to go and things are hotting up!
  • 14.03.15 - 13h01
    Pole-winner Jean-Eric Vergne (Andretti): "I scored some good points [three bonus points] and it's a good position to start the race. Let's wait to see what happens then.."
  • 14.03.15 - 12h59
    The last group doesn't produce any dramatic changes to the classification, which means that Jean-Eric Vergne will start the Miami ePrix from pole position - his second of the 2014/2015 season.
  • 14.03.15 - 12h53
    Alguersuari's first flyer is not a quick one. In fact, none of this group is fast, except Duran (Amlin Aguri) who goes 11th (1m6.888s)
  • 14.03.15 - 12h53
    Alguersuari's first flyer is not a quick one. In fact, none of this group is fast, except Duran (Amlin Aguri) who goes 11th (1m6.888s)
  • 14.03.15 - 12h50
    One more group to go in qualifying for the Miami ePrix. First out this time is Alguersuari (Virgin). His team-mate Sam Bird is provisionally fourth on the grid.
  • 14.03.15 - 12h46
    With one qualifying group still to lap, the order is now: 1) Vergne. 2) Piquet +0.050s. 3) Prost +0.214s. 4) Bird +0.217s. 5) Abt +0.302s. 6) Sarrazin +0.436s. Etc. The top 10 drivers are covered by less than a second...
  • 14.03.15 - 12h44
    Piquet moves up to second place (1m6.003s) which is 0.050s behind Vergne. A sign that the track is improving?
  • 14.03.15 - 12h42
    The fastest drivers in this group are starting to improve but Piquet and Sarrazin have to settle for seventh and eighth places at the moment. However, Jean-Eric Vergne has gone to the top of the order with a 1m5.953s, two-tenths better than fellow Frenchman Prost.
  • 14.03.15 - 12h39
    First of the bunch on the track this time is Vergne. The French ex-F1 racer's first flying lap is 1m11.612s, which is almost five seconds off the pace. Piquet and Sarrazin post similarly 'slow' times.
  • 14.03.15 - 12h37
    The third qualifying group is out on the track. Once again, the timing screen counts down from eight minutes...
  • 14.03.15 - 12h35
    Nicolas Prost: "Quite happy with my performance. There are some fast drivers still to come and I don't know how the track is evolving. There's nothing I can do to change anything."
  • 14.03.15 - 12h32
    Speed improves to post a 1m6.527s to go sixth as the chequered flag is shown. The order are the first groups is 1) Prost. 2) Bird, +0.003s. 3) Abt, +0.088s. 4) Di Grassi, +0.257s. 5) Heidfeld, +0.343s. Etc.
  • 14.03.15 - 12h30
    Di Grassi goes second overall with a 1m6.170s, but he is immediately passed by Bird (1m6.170s) and Abt (1m6.255s). Chandhok and Speed are eighth and ninth so far
  • 14.03.15 - 12h29
    Chandhok's car is effectively 'crabbing', confirming our earlier deduction...
  • 14.03.15 - 12h28
    Bird's third lap produces a time of 1m6.835s, which puts him fourth, but Abt goes slightly faster with a 1m6.803s. Di Grassi is sixth
  • 14.03.15 - 12h18
    Heidfeld appears in second spot, +0.224s short of Prost who still tops the order.
  • 14.03.15 - 12h18
    Sam Bird is now in the lead for Virgin with a 1m6.588s. That will please Virgin boss Richard Branson who arrived at the circuit about 20 minutes ago...
  • 14.03.15 - 12h17
    Prost's second flyer takes him clear at the top with a 1m6.286s. Second is Buemi and Trulli is third

    A reminder of how Formula E qualifying works: The qualifying session is a straight fight for the fastest lap time and determines the order for the day's race. The session will last 55 minutes (40 minutes track) and see drivers divided into four groups of five cars, with each group having 10 minutes to set their best time. Full power (200kw / 270bhp) will be available throughout with drivers only able to use one car. The driver setting the fastest time will be awarded three points.
