Formula E: Long Beach ePrix Preview

After a short break from the thrilling race in Miami, Formula E returns to action this weekend as 20 cars take to Long Beach.

The shortened 2.1km version of the track features seven turns around the South California track, using the same start/finish straight as the iconic F1 version. After this the cars will turn right onto South Pine Avenue before re-joining the more well-known track.

This round features a slightly different timetable, with three non-qualifying practice sessions instead of the usual two. The qualifying and race format stays the same, with the race distance being 39 laps around the circuit.

In terms of drivers, for the first time this season there are no changes to the grid from the previous ePrix. Scott Speed, who finished on the podium in Miami, keeps his Andretti seat while Loic Duval, Vitantonio Liuzzi and Charles Pic keep their Dragon Racing, Trulli and China Racing seats respectively.

The race starts at 16.00 local time.
