Monaco Could Substitute for Moscow

As questions remain over the Moscow ePrix, the sport could return to Monaco if the Russian event is cancelled.

Sources close to Formula E Zone have revealed that there have been contact between Prince Albert II of Monaco and Formula E about a possible backup solution if the Moscow ePrix fails to happen.

Prince Albert attended the Paris ePrix last weekend and is believed to have found out about the troubles the sport had with Moscow and offered Monaco as a possible option if they had enough notice to host the event.

The race will still take place on the 4th June, which is the scheduled date for the Moscow ePrix, as all the infrastructure will be in place from Monaco Grand Prix, which would have taken place a week earlier.

Our sources made it clear that there will still be some hurdles for Formula E to navigate through if they decide to replace Monaco with Moscow, which could stop Monaco from hosting the event as a backup solution.

Formula E’s┬ámain priority is trying to make the Moscow ePrix happens this year, and discussions will only occur with Monaco once Moscow has officially been cancelled, and if there is enough time for the FIA to accept Monaco as a replacement for the Russian event.
