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.
