São Paulo Street Circuit

With three long straights connected by tricky chicanes, sweeping corners and tight turns, the circuit for the inaugural race in São Paulo is expected to be a challenging affair for the pack, with high speeds anticipated from the all-new high-powered Gen3.

Starting on the the main straight that's usually reserved for carnival floats and revelry, there will be a different type of dancing as the drivers put their toe tapping to use on the brake pedals into the series of sharp turns, that feed to a looping hairpin that fires the field down the straight.

This straight is broken up with another challenging right-left-right series of corners to another long straight. The final sector sees more passing opportunities in the run to the finish line.

A carnival of motorsport

Brazil: The home of motorsport legends. Now all-electric racing makes its debut as the Formula E grid gets ready for its inaugural visit with a stop in São Paulo.

There's another form of electrifying entertainment hitting the streets of São Paulo; instead of floats and dancers we're bringing wheel-to-wheel racing around the city's Sambadrome. Hometown hero and former champion Lucas di Grassi hails from São Paulo and will be joined by compatriot Sergio Sette Camara as Formula E gets set for its debut in Brazil.
