Mexico City E-Prix Preview: Can Jake Dennis defend his crown?

Formula E is back for its tenth season and while the chaos of ‘silly season’ is over and the data from pre-season testing has been analysed, who will win the title in Season 10 is still very much up for debate.


Jake Dennis remains with then newly-renamed Andretti Global and will have Norman Nato as his team-mate following his switch from Nissan. It was the consistency of podium finishes that Dennis had last season that helped him secure the title, despite only taking two race wins.

Runner-up Nick Cassidy has got a factory seat at Jaguar, replacing the McLaren-bound Sam Bird. He will be hoping to go one step further this season and win the overall title and will have Mitch Evans, who was third last season, partnering him at the team. This is one of the strongest driver pairings on the grid and should have a very strong chance of taking the Teams’ Championship at the very least.


This weekend the grid will be going racing at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, a circuit that Formula One fans will be familiar with. Formula E has been racing here since 2016, with only the Covid-hit 2021 race being the sole absence in the history books.


A real theme this season is expected to be Jaguar v Porsche in the battle of the manufacturers. Last season, it was the Jaguar customer team Envision Racing that took the title ahead of the Jaguar Works team. In the battle of the Porsche’s, it was the customer Andretti team that also beat the works team. This season, both Jaguar and Porsche will be hoping that it’s the works teams that come out on top in both the Drivers’ and Team’s Championship.


The circuit is a 19-turn, 2.630km circuit that contains a mix of fast straights and a very technical stadium section which will have 40,000 fans patiently waiting for the all-electric series to go racing.

The 19-turn, 2.630km circuit is a perfect mix of long, fast straights and a technical infield section that passes right through the legendary Foro Sol stadium – housing tens of thousands of fans.


While Formula E has been available on free-to-air television for viewers in the UK from the very start, this year it has gone behind a paywall. While many followers of the series will be disappointment, TNT Sports have secured some high profile names to create their coverage including former Premier League footballer Jermaine Jenas as lead presenter and guest appearances from Billy Monger, David Coulthard and Jamie Chadwick across the season.


Formula E is back and the motorsport year is underway, who will take the crown and become World Champion? or will someone become a multiple World Champion in 2024? We will find out between now and the season finale in London.
