  1. High-altitude, hot and hectic - the Mexico E-Prix

    As the Formula E heads back to central America, here’s a few things to take on board ahead of the Mexico E-Prix:

    1. Mexico City is situated at about 7,300 feet (2.25 km) above sea level, so the air is thinner in what is the oldest capital city in the Americas. Mexico itself is home to more than twice as many people as Spain and is therefore the nation with the most Spanish speakers in the world.

    2. The temperature for the race is higher than for most of the venues on the Formula E tour. The circuit has had an extra 500m of track added to it and is the only permanent circuit on the tour. The track temperature is expected to be high – perhaps almost as much as last season’s 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

    3. Mexico City has been a good track for the Audi team - they have been first across the line in all four previous races in the 'City of Palaces', although one of those wins was later taken away when Lucas di Grassi’s car was found to be underweight. A year later, he made amends by winning the race from 15th on the grid and squeaked past Pascal Wehrlein at the last corner to win last year’s race by a fifth of a second. His team-mate Daniel Abt has also tasted Champagne on the podium at the Hermanos Rodriguez circuit.

    4. This could be the circuit where Formula E champion Jean-Eric Vergne launches his bid for a third title in a row from his current 15th place in the standings. JEV, as he is known, set a new lap record of 58.775 seconds last year in Mexico, although he only finished 13th. His best position in Mexico is second, which came in the 2017 race.

  2. Guenther makes good on promise in Chile

    BMW Andretti driver Max Guenther became the youngest race winner in Formula E history when he took the Chile E-Prix in Santiago last month.

    “Today is a dream come true," Guenther said afterwards. “We used the attack modes very cleverly and that allowed me to take the lead."

    Twelve months earlier, he found himself out of a job after failing to finish in the same race led to his former team Geox Dragon to cut him from the squad.

    A former Formula 2 driver who won at Silverstone in the 2018 season, Guenther was born in Oberstdorf, Germany in 1997 and arrived in Formula 3.

    He appeared to have won his first electric podium in the second race in the opening event at Dariyah, Saudi Arabia in November, only to be told that his second place was being taken away because he passed two other cars while a safety car was still deployed.

    Mexico City is the fourth stop of the 2019-20 Formula E season following the curtain-raising double-header in Ad-Diriyah, Saudi Arabia and race in Santiago, Chile.

    Last year's race gave us an incredible finish as Brazilian Lucas di Grassi stole victory on the line as he battled it out against Pascal Wehrlein.

    Formula E has unveiled the design of their new car for next season - the Gen2 EVO, which is a redesign of the current car.

    The Gen2 was introduced last season and enabled drivers to finish a race on one battery.

    The new car features a 'shark fin' rear wing and revised bodywork.

    "The Gen2 EVO has been given re-profiled bodywork to make it look more sleek and agile," Formula E chairman Alejandro Agag said.
