The ABB FIA Formula E Championship returns to Mexico City for the fifth time in the series' history. We're talking plenty of sun, all the off-track entertainment headlined by Colombian band Piso 21 and a healthy dose of wheel-to-wheel combat as 24 cars and drivers battle for the win in front of the legendary Foro Sol. Mexico City, here we come.
Created for the arrival of Formula E in 2016, the street course makes use of the legendary Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit. With race-ready surface and long corners, Mexico City is not only one of the fastest tracks in the Formula E calendar, it's also the highest at 2,250m above sea level.
The track layout for the Mexico City E-Prix is completely new for 2020 and features a mix of long and fast straights and a technical section through the legendary Foro Sol stadium. Back at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit for the fifth time, Mexico City is a true spectacle on the Formula E race calendar.
Starting on the traditional start/finish straight, the Formula E grid will hurtle down into turn one - home to some brave out-braking maneuverers. After a long and fast Turn 2, all 24 cars and drivers will make their way around Turn 3, which breaks off left into a four turn sequence, new for the 2020 race.
Looping back around a hairpin (Turn 5), Turn 6 and 7 lead back onto the familiar layout, with a straight and sharp right-hand bend (Turn 8) leading into the legendary Foro Sol stadium section (Turns 9-13), where the fans will be treated to more chaotic Formula E moments. Leaving the stadium the drivers will then jostle for position on the new fully profiled Peraltada curve (Turn 15) before completing the lap.
After Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler’s Lucas di Grassi snatched the win from Mahindra Racing’s Pascal Wehrlein just meters from the finish, expect even more energy management chaos on the new Mexico circuit on February 15.Get prepared for some more sensational scenes in the sun.
