Michelin Keys to the Race:

Race: Mexico City E-Prix

Track: Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, Mexico City

Length: 1.30 miles, 18 turns

Driver Insight: “It’s a big challenge to race there, because you have a lot of corners packed into a pretty tight layout. The altitude of Mexico City provides additional challenges, because it can be quite hot, and the atmosphere has less oxygen. This can have an effect on cooling the battery and powertrain.” – Sebastien Buemi, Nissan e.dams.
