Prior hours of the ePrix of Buenos Aires Formula E


Formula E is back. Although the contest
cars electric are gathered in Las Vegas to compete in his first race of the virtual, what is certain is that the wait to see in
action the cars electrical has been made eternal from the ePrix of Marrakech, a test that was played in
November. All in all, the event directed by Alejandro Agag lands in
Argentina to play the ePrix of Buenos Aires
. A test that can be
make a weekend of farewells, the whole time that the already known goodbye to the
street circuit of Puerto Madero you can join the march final of Argentina

The ePrix of Buenos Aires has been one of the quotes fixed
calendar of the Formula E
since its debut season. Held in the Port
Madero Street Circuit, the test is disputed in the capital of argentina, has had
two great protagonists, António Félix Da Costa and Sam Bird. It gives the
no coincidence that the victory of Sam Bird in the season 2015-16 it was the only
harvested by the british pilot and the team DS Virgin during the ‘Season
, in the same way that the triumph of António Félix Da Costa added also
his only win in the Formula E
with the team Amlin Aguri in Argentina.

The Puerto Madero Street Circuit has a length of 2.41
kilometers and has a total of 12 curves
, something that does not prevent it to be one
circuit fastest on the calendar of Formula E. While it is
two chicanes and a very slow in the central part, the track has two
high-speed sections
. It is not surprising that the pole position in 2016 to mark
1:09.420, and the fastest race lap in 1:10.285, in the same way that
nor is it a surprise that many pilots consider Puerto Madero one of the
circuits most attractive of the season


After the two wins picked in the first two ePrix
of the season, Sébastien Buemi defends leadership in Buenos Aires. The pilot
swiss adds 50 points by the 28 that accumulates Lucas di Grassi and the 24, Nico
Prost, which in turn puts Renault and.Dams in a privileged position
the classification of teams, where doubles in points to his most immediate rival.
All in all, the ePrix in Buenos Aires should not be a race of few
protagonists and Felix Rosenqvist and Nick Heidfeld can also be immersed
in the fight after the podiums harvested in the Hong Kong and Marrakech

All in all, the ePrix of Buenos Aires has as great
protagonist José María ‘Pechito’ Lopez
. The three-time champion of the WTCC and
new official driver for Toyota in the WEC to compete at home, and that has a value
added since the regular heat transmitted from the argentine fans. Of
indeed, ‘Pechito’ is the first argentinian driver who competes in Formula E and in
this test also is a strong candidate to receive the ‘FanBoost’. From there
will have to see who can get the pilot DS Virgin after his hesitant
the beginning of the season
with only one point in its ‘bag’.
