Driver Insight: “The Marrakesh track is based on the circuit that used to host the World Touring Car Championship, Formula 2 and Auto GP, so it’s more of a traditional layout than we’re used to in Formula E. Because it’s long by Formula E standards, and there’s a lot of sections where we’re flat-out for quite a long time, from that side it puts more strain on the powertrain.” – Alex Lynn, DS Virgin Racing
