2019 Antofagasta Minerals Santiago E-Prix

26 Jan 2019

Witness 22 cars and drivers battle it out on the capital’s leafy streets, set to the spectacular backdrop of the Andes. 22 contestants but only one winner. It’s all to play for. Santiago, here we come.

All for the taking in Santiago
With teams that finished stone cold last in the 2017/18 Championship now turning out on top and drivers claiming their first ever win despite four or more years at the wheel, the fifth season of Formula E is more unpredictable than ever before. In two races we've witnessed the fall of firm favourites and mighty manufacturers, while the underdogs reign supreme. With more of the same forecast for Santiago, the next win is anyone’s for the taking.

South American showdown

After trading bodywork and verbal blows with fellow Brazilian Lucas di Grassi in Race 1, Piquet Jr. went on the offensive once again in Marrakesh, labelling Venturi's Felipe Massa an ‘amateur’. With all three Brazilian drivers fuelling the fierce rivalry as we head to South America, could tensions spill onto the streets in Santiago?

From the Sahara to the streets of Santiago

 After an iconic season-opener in the Middle East, to the wildest race yet in the heat of the Saharan sun. Now the ABB FIA Formula E Championship heads to the leafy streets of Santiago, lining up on the start line of the 2.407km track that winds its way around Parque O'Higgins in the heart of the capital. Santiago, we're coming for you.

The ABB FIA Formula E Championship returns to Santiago for the second time in the series' history as all 22 Gen2 cars race around the leafy streets of Parque O'Higgins in a bid to clinch the win in the Chilean capital.  

Parque O'Higgins

After one of the most spectacular showdowns in the history of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship took place on the streets of Santiago last season, the city will once again play host as the on-track action moves to Parque O'Higgins. The 2.348km course winds its way around the park as all 22 Gen2 cars and drivers navigate their way around 14 Turns.

Track length: 2.348km 

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.
