The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship returns to Mexico for the sixth time in the series' history. This time around the all-electric racing action comes straight from the Autodromo Miguel E. Abed outside the colourful city of Puebla and in the shadow of the Popocatepetl volcano.
Formula E will be visiting a new circuit for this season's visit to Mexico, but last year Mitch Evans was unstoppable in the Jaguar Racing machine in the 2020 Mexico City E-Prix. The Kiwi driver bounded into the lead from turn one and never looked back. Behind him was a riot of action with Antonio Felix da Costa (DS TECHEETAH) continuing his podium run with second place and Sebastien Buemi (Nissan e.dams) rounding out the podium.
The Autodromo Miguel E. Abed, is one of Mexico's premier racing circuits and only the second to receive an FIA homologation in the country. Previously host to the NASCAR Mexico series and the FIA World Touring Car Championship between 2005 - 2009, the Mexican circuit now adds all-electric racing to its notable races.
With an infield section surrounded by an oval and a variety of track configurations to play with, Formula E has adapted the circuit with a string of 15 corners for a 2.98km lap of the Autodromo Miguel E. Abed. For Puebla, the ATTACK MODE activation zone will come in the form of an extension to Turn 8, with Formula E's version of a Joker lap adding a curveball for the teams when they make the plunge for the extra 35kW boost.
There'll be banking to deal with, too, as the circuit rounds the outer oval through the final Turn 15, with a slingshot out onto the long back straight likely to be crucial as the tight right hander into Turn 1 will prove a hotspot for overtaking.
