The statistics of the MotoE
In 2023, Jordi Torres and Hector Garzò both took podium finishes in the first round at Le Mans. Four riders have finished on the podium this year: Torres (2), Garzo (2), Ferrari (1) and Randy Krummenacher (1). One rider achieved the "hat trick" (win, pole, fastest lap) in the same round in 2023: Matteo Ferrari.
Ferrari thus obtained his first victory outside Italy (the previous ones had been one at Mugello and six at Misano). At Le Mans, Torres returned to the top step of the podium, giving Team Openbank Aspar their first win and first ever podium in MotoE. Torres was not winning in MotoE from Race 1 of the 2021 San Marino GP.

Four riders have participated in all seasons of the MotoE: Matteo Ferrari (34 starts), Eric Granado (32), Mattia Casadei (33) and Maria Herrera (34). In 2023, seven new riders participate in the MotoGP electric class, five of whom are rookies: Tito Rabat, Luca Salvadori, Mika Perez, Nicholas Spinelli and Randy Krummenacher. The others have already participated in MotoE in the past: Alessandro Zaccone (2020-2021) and Andrea Mantovani (2021 and two races in 2022 to replace the injured Bradley Smith).
Granado and Ferrari are the only riders to have achieved a double victory in the same round. The Brazilian did it in the Spanish and Austrian GPs in 2022 and in Valencia in 2019, while the Italian in the San Marino GP in 2019.
The LCR E-Team is the only team that has achieved a one-two: in Race 2 in both the Spanish GP and the Austrian GP in 2022. The Dynavolt Intact GP MotoE team has the most podium finishes (21), followed by the LCR E-Team (15), Pons Racing 40 (15) and Felo Gresini MotoE (14).
The riders who achieved a “hat trick” (win, pole, fastest lap) in the same round were: Eric Granado (2019 Valencia GP, 2020 Spanish GP, 2021 Dutch GP, 2022 Austrian GP), Matteo Ferrari (2023 FrenchGP) , Mattia Casadei (2022 French GP), Dominique Aegerter (2022 Italian GP), Niki Tuuli (2019 German GP) and Mike Di Meglio (2019 Austrian GP).
The performance of the MotoE 2023
In the first round, in France, Ferrari beat the previous lap record by more than three seconds. It is remarkable that in both races at Le Mans, all participants were faster than the previous lap record of the MotoE.
In the first pre-season test, Granado was fastest and broke the official MotoE lap record by half a second in Jerez. In the second test, Granado was fastest again and lowered the official MotoE lap record by three seconds in Barcelona.
Here is some information on the Ducati V21L: the acceleration data were recorded during a start while the braking data are those recorded at the end of the main straight in Barcelona (turn 1).
