The Track

Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez

Created for the arrival of Formula E in 2016, the 2.093km track 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 2500m above sea level.

With a total of 17 turns, the drivers start off on the circuit's traditional start/finish straight before making their way around Turn 2. From here, it gets a little technical, so listen up. Scrubbing off speed into Turn 4 and 5, the drivers make their way through Turn 6 and 7 and into the iconic Foro Sol section where, if you're lucky, you'll catch a good glimpse of them as they make it around.

After that, they loop back around, battling through one last chicane before hitting the start/finish straight. As if that wasn't enough, there's also the altitude to deal with. At over 2500m above sea level, the track is not only the highest in the Formula E calendar but also one of the highest in the world. Well, we never said it was going to be easy. This is Formula E, after all.

Guide: Get to know the track

See all 22 new Gen2 cars in action

While the championship might be only five years old, the technology racing around the circuit is ever-changing. Season 5 will see 22 Gen2 cars racing around the track in anger for the very first time. The Batmobile-esque all-electric racer has double the energy storage capacity of the Gen1 car, meaning it can complete a whole race, so wave goodbye to mid-race car swaps. With 250kW of power, the Gen2 will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.8-seconds and go on to a top speed of 280km/h.

Greater speeds, more action on track and with just one car per driver - there's everything to lose.

Introducing the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY

Jaguar is making history with the world’s first all-electric production based international race series. Beginning in season five of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY is the first official support race to the street racing series.

20 I-PACEs. 10 races. 1 winner.

With 20 production based Jaguar I-PACE race cars with identical specifications going head to head, it’s down to driver skill and team tactics to decide who will be crowned champion. Held over ten races and in some of the world’s most celebrated cities, the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY championship promises to be the next exciting chapter in Jaguar’s Race to Innovate.
