R1 | 09 OCT 2016 HONG KONG, HK

Hong Kong central harbourfront circuit

Track guide –HKT Hong Kong ePrix

Number of turns – 10

Track length – 1.860km

Past winners – Sebastien Buemi

Qualifying record – 1:03.099 – Nelson Piquet Jr

Lap record – 1:02.947 – Felix Rosenqvist

A new addition to the FIA Formula E championship, the HKT Hong Kong ePrix is well and truly sparking the 2016/17 season into life. The circuit races around the streets of the central harbourfront against the stunning backdrop of the Hong Kong skyline, with famous landmarks such as the Observation Wheel coming into vision whilst the drivers are battling for a chance to put their name in the history books. For one driver, Techeetah’s Ma Qing Hua, this race is not only special for the championship, but a chance to give his local fans something to cheer about.

Practice makes perfect

In terms of balance there are still some things we need to set up but as it was shakedown we didn’t really push so it’s difficult to say how the car actually will be for qualifying and the race. We will really see in the morning session.

New beginnings

It takes a bit of time. The best overtaking spot I think is down into turn 1. The track is short and during the day the surface is changing because more cars are running and there is rubber whereas with a clear track you can obviously push a bit more. The grip level is also changing throughout the day so you are always learning.

Home comforts

I love this city. For me Hong Kong being in the season three calendar feels like a home race and I love the food here and of course the people. The race location is fantastic – I’m really happy to be racing in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong City Guide

History: From its earliest days as a British colony, Hong Kong served as a centre of international trade. In the turbulent years of the early 20th century, the city’s population was bolstered by refugees, mostly from China. The arrival of immigrants in large numbers helped launch a new role for Hong Kong as a major manufacturing hub. It also brought economically stimulating energy and industry to the city’s character. In recent decades, as the economy of Mainland China has undergone a process of opening up, Hong Kong has transformed yet again – this time into a service-based economy as well as an important gateway to the world’s largest market. – Hong Kong Tourist Board

Culture: Hong Kong has two main languages, Chinese and English, as well as Cantonese. The Currency is the Hong Kong Dollar. The City has a population of more than 7.3 Million people across all various languages and religions. Hong Kong is UTC + 8. Temperature wise, in October the average temperature is 27.8C/82F.

Where to eat – If you love oriental cuisine, you’re in for a real treat in Hong Kong. In Central there are over 570 restaurants.

  • If you are looking for some International cuisine whilst in town, check out Braza Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse. Ranked the no. 1 restaurant in Central on TripAdvisor.
  • Calling all Dim Sum fans, Ding Dim 1968 is the only place for you! Plus, it is very reasonably priced.
  • If you are looking to spend a little bit more, then Ho Lee Fook offers incredible atmosphere and out of this world chicken wings.
  • Enjoy Indian food? Love an open kitchen? Why not try Bombay Dreams!

Where to drink – The best place for an aperitif?

  • Try M Bar, a rooftop bar with a view of the city.
  • If cocktails are your thing, then make your way towards Quinary
  • Le Boudoir is a stylish and hidden basement bar in Central.
  • Looking for a rock bar? Check out Rockabilly.

What to do – Thanks to the incredible location of the track, any Formula E fans staying nearby and looking for something to do, we recommend checking out:

  • Take a spin on the Hong Kong Observation Wheel
  • Make a visit to the Hong Kong Park
  • Check out Hollywood Road if you like your shopping
  • Pay a visit to the International Finance Centre

During the weekend of the HKT Hong Kong ePrix, there will activities, left, right and centre on and off the track. With something on offer for the whole family. The ePrix takes place on Sunday October 9th around the Central Harbour in Hong Kong.

Circuito de Puerto Madero

Circuit Guide

Just a stone’s throw from the park that the Buenos Aires ePrix calls home is a statue of Juan Manuel Fangio and his title-winning Mercedes-Benz Formula 1 car. It’s an illustration not just of the transition from the past to the future of motorsport an electric racing, but also a symbol of the Argentinian fans’ love of motorsport. And they have been treated to two fabulous races on the 2.4-kilometre circuit. In season one, Antonio Felix da Costa triumphed in the most unpredictable race to date, while in season two Sebastien Buemi almost won from 18th on the grid, but denied by a superb drive by Sam Bird.

Driver’s Guide
Antonio Felix da Costa, season one winner

“Argentina has a racing background which is good for Formula E when we bring the racing out into the streets, I think it makes it really easy for people to go to the track and watch it. I think it was one of the best races with everything combined with all the fans and the track. I think we’re in for a really nice time and race, with a lot of people and lucky feathers and there’s really good food around there as well so I’m really looking forward to go back!

“You know these kind of race races; Malaysia and Buenos Aires, anything that hot is what we train for. We do some special training dedicated to that. It’s never a big issue for us drivers and I think it’s a bigger issue for the cars. I don’t think any car at the end of the day stopped with a temperature problem (in Putrajaya) but it definitely slowed everybody down, it altered everyone’s strategies and how much everyone was using the regeneration. It’s certainly very tricky and changes everything for the teams and the drivers, and it’s very easy to make a mistake. But at the end of the day for you guys outside watching it, it’s going to bring more interest and it’s going to bring everyone closer together.

If you can line someone up there’s a good overtaking spot at turn four. Obviously turn one and then turn seven, and I think before the last chicane is also a good opportunity. Everybody is very sensible in Formula E, and that’s a good thing. Every driver has a lot of respect for each other. We have not seen in season two any stupid crashes from the racing so far and that’s the beauty of Formula E when you bring professional drivers together, it gives for good racing. I think this is where we really have an edge over other categories.”

Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez

Circuit Guide

The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez has held numerous races from Formula 1 to the World Endurance Championship during its illustrious history and many different configurations. A brand new, 2.1km layout was created for the arrival of Formula E in 2016. At over 2500m, the track is the highest in Formula E – and one of the highest in the world. It was also the first time that a Formula E race took place on a ‘permanent’ road course. In the race Lucas di Grassi won on the road but was disqualified for being underweight, handing victory to Dragon Racing’s Jerome D’Ambrosio.

Driver’s Guide
Salvador Duran, former Team Aguri driver

“The first complex and approach to turn one looks like a very interesting corner, a very fast chicane. The second part where you exit, you’re already into another corner, you’re already into the oval and the normal part of the circuit. It’s going to be quite interesting to see how the drivers manage to exit with as much speed as they can. Turn four looks like a very slow corner to the right and then you get a lot of change in direction as you go through another left corner which is practically a U-turn. You have to be very careful on the exit as well because after that you have the straight before entering into the stadium.

I love it because there is one part that is actually a stadium. The configuration of the track means that we go through there on two occasions and I think all the people there are going to be so excited because being in the stadium, the excitement is going to be contagious! I really like that part and the other point is that we have so many grandstands along the start/finish straight and over the pits as well. It looks like it’s going to be very challenging. The best overtaking spot I’ve seen will be the entry into the stadium, that’s going to be the most interesting bit.

The fans here are really loud! They are really passionate. They are really excited about what we can offer because they really want to see a car running. I would say they don’t quite understand and even the media doesn’t understand Formula E cars. That’s why it’s going to be so good when we get there and show them what we have. It’s not only about the car, it’s also about the show Formula E brings to every single place it goes to.”

R5 | 13 MAY 2017 MONACO, MC

Circuit of Monaco

The Monaco ePrix returns to the Formula E calendar on May 13, 2017. Once again the track uses a modified configuration of the iconic GP street circuit. At just under 2km in length, the Formula E cars will use the same famous start/finish line before turning right and immediately towards the harbour, where they’ll tackle a new hairpin before rejoining with the more familiar track configuration, including the well-known Tabac and Swimming Pool corners. Current champ Sebastien Buemi was the season one winner for Renault e.dams.

Nelson Piquet Jr track guide:

Monaco is one of our tracks that has the highest grip – I think that’s because they resurface for Formula 1 every year. It’s very smooth has a lot of good quality asphalt so from the first season it was the track where we had the most amount of grip and g-force, braking power, lateral grip and all this kind of thing.

I think it’s going to be the quickest race for us – obviously the tyres have changed – but still there’s going to be more grip than all the tracks we’ve visited this year… That was one of the reasons there wasn’t that much overtaking – you’re braking so much later and you carry so much more speed that it becomes harder to overtake.

Turn 1 is probably the hardest braking point of the track because we are coming out of the quickest part, and we’re coming into one of the slowest corners, so there’s really hard braking and it’s just a simple hairpin. But it’s also one of the best places to overtake. And as well as that it’s a good place to set up an overtaking manoeuvre into Turn 3 because if you make him defend into Turn 1 on the inside and he has a bad exit for Turn 3 – and that’s how I got past Jerome D’Ambrosio.

The exit of Turn 1 and 2 is really important for you to defend Turn 3 well, which is another strong braking point and again is the second and only other place where I can see that you can overtake somebody.

Turn 4 is a pretty straightforward corner, pretty smooth, hard-braking, and very important to have a good exit because there is a quick section after that. Turn 5 is probably the quickest corner of the track – except Turn 6 which is flat – T5 is just a little brake into a very fast left-hander, which in qualifying will be pretty tricky because a lot of people will be wanting to carry a lot of speed through there.

Turns 6 and 7 are flat for us, so pretty straight forward and simple. Turn 8 and 9 is the only chicane in the usual style we have in Formula E and it’s the only place where we will really be attacking the kerbs.

Then it’s the last corners, which start at the Rascasse, which seems very tight on TV for F1, but for us is actually pretty normal. Usually you brake pretty deep into Rascasse because you don’t need a very good exit because it’s a really short straight, so you try to carry as much speed as you can into Turn 11. The exit of Turn 11 into 12 is not a big issue but you want to prepare Turn 12 to have really good exit for the main straight because you want to gain time on the whole straight.

R6 | 20 MAY 2017 PARIS, FR

Circuit des Invalides

Qatar Airways Paris ePrix Circuit Guide

Paris – The City of Light – is one of the most famous in the world. France is the country where motorsport as we know it today was created and the city itself is part of that history. At just 1.9 kilometres, the track is the shortest used in season two, although the Monaco track used in season one was shorter. The race takes place around the historic Les Invalides complex, where a sold-out crowd will have plenty of local heroes to cheer on.

Driver’s Guide
Loic Duval, Faraday Future Dragon Racing

“I joined the series last year in the middle of the season and I saw the calendar for this year and I was thinking, of course you expect Formula E to go to city-centres, in the best cities around the world, and you really wanted Formula E to be in Paris. I think it’s well deserved for the city, and the championship to be able to race here. To have a sports event in the city-centre is always positive, to bring the race to the people. When the red lights go out, it’s our turn as racing drivers to make the show a little bit special.

“It looks quite quick in some areas with medium and high-speed corners. Some areas look a bit tricky with really tight corners so there’s always going to be a way to manage the set-up between the fast parts and slow corners, that’s going to be something special. It looks like there are two long straights and a lot of opportunities to overtake to fight with the other guys, it looks really promising.

“I think with the experience of the Formula E guys and the organisation, we’ve been to tracks before where it’s been really difficult to drive, I remember Moscow last year and London and they’ve always managed to find a solution and now they have even more experience. In France we even have a famous cycling race which is the Paris-Roubaix, and there are these kinds of roads. In a way also, if it was possible to have these kinds of difficulties, it would make the race more special and the track more special, we’ll see how it ends up.”
