The inaugural FIA Formula E Championship reaches a climax this weekend around a temporary circuit laid out in Battersea Park, south London.
After events in China, Malaysia, Uruguay, Argentina, Miami, Long Beach, Monaco, Germany and Russia, the series for electric single-seat racers culminates with a brace of hour-long races, one apiece on Saturday and Sunday. Here’s what’s in store this weekend.
Battle for the titles
With two points-scoring races over two days, no fewer than six drivers can mathematically clinch the title. However, it is realistically between three former Formula 1 racers: Nelson Piquet Jr, Lucas di Grassi and Sébastien Buemi. Nicolas Prost, Jerome d’Ambrosio and Britain's Sam Bird are the outsiders. The teams' classification, meanwhile, is topped by e.dams-Renault, which enjoys a commanding lead over its closest pursuer, Audi Sport Abt.
Fans can earn their favourite driver a power boost by voting for them prior to the race. The three drivers with the most votes will each receive one five-second ‘power boost’ per car, temporarily increasing their car’s power from 202.5bhp to 243bhp. The recipients of the extra power are revealed prior to each race. In the build-up to the race, championship leader Piquet Jr had the edge in the Fanboost poll.
