Driver Insight: “There are a lot of corners compared to most other Formula E tracks. The first sector is quite fast and there is a downhill section which is quite wide and then you come back up a slight hill so there is some good elevation. So while it is quite fast and flowing in sector one, the second sector is more traditionally a street circuit in that there are plenty of ninety-degree corners and a hairpin. The final sector looks to be the trickiest and is quite slow and tight. Just as you come to the end of the lap there is this super slow section where there is a really tight chicane just before the pit entrance.” – Tom Blomqvist
