2016 London e-Prix Preview

For the second year in a row, London plays home to the Formula E title decider as Sebastien Buemi and Lucas di Grassi look to take the crown from Nelson Piquet, Jr.

Buemi and di Grassi, of e.Dams Renault and ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport respectively go into the double header at Battersea Park separated by one point.

Both drivers have experience of title deciders in Formula E as both Buemi and di Grassi were involved in last year’s three-way fight for the title.

It was so close for Buemi, in fact, that it went down to the final few corners of the final lap of the season.

This year there are two drivers realistically in the fight, although Sam Bird mathematically can win the title for DS Virgin.

18 cars will take to the track around the 2.925km track, featuring 15 turns, in the hope of taking victory in the final races of the season.

In terms of the title, there are too many permutations to talk about given there are two races this weekend.

This post will be updated on Saturday evening with title permutations and who needs to score what to win.
