DS Techeetah heads to Mexico City in hopes of scoring more valuable points at the fourth round of the Formula E championship.
The Mexico City E-Prix features 17 turns across the 2.1km Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez track. Formula E races on an adapted track that sees an added stadium section. Mexico City is located in the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt in the high plateaus of south-central Mexico and is elevated on 2,500m above the sea level.
Formula E cars do not suffer the same altitude issues as combustion or hybrid engine cars do, but the challenges remain for the drivers.
Mark Preston, Team Principal of DS Techeetah said, "The Mexico E-Prix track isn't one that has been kind to us in the past so we're hoping to change that this year. We've gone back to the drawing board a little and hopefully our new plans will pan out. Although we're keen to score points and work ourselves back towards the top of the standings, we've got our expectations in check for this race."
