While there is a title to be decided in Abu Dhabi, hop on a plane for seven and a half hours and you will find a series just getting into swing. Formula E returns for its second ePrix, this time around the streets of Putrajaya, Malaysia.
There have been a couple of driver changes for this race in Malaysia. Charles Pic is unable to drive because of F1 commitments, and he will be replaced by Matthew Brabham in the Andretti car, alongside Frank Montagny.
Antonia Felix da Costa will make his Formula E debut in competitive racing, taking his seat alongside Katherinne Legge. This means Takuma Sato, who set the fastest lap in Beijing, misses out.
Made up of 12 corners, the 2.5km track features some tight corners, a hairpin and a first corner chicane. There are fewer 90 degree corners compared to the race in Beijing and some long straights – a chance for some overtaking moves to be made. The drivers will lap the track 31 times on their way to the chequered flag.
Obviously after one race, there’s no point discussing the standings too much; though Nico Prost has three points from his pole position in Beijing and Takuma Sato gained two points from setting the fastest lap.
