Formula E has unveiled the track layout it will use for the fourth round of its inaugural season in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The 1.516-mile track will run anti-clockwise around the Puerto Madero district and will feature a total of 12 corners. The event will take place on Jan. 15.
Buenos Aires is the fifth track layout unveiled by Formula E officials, and the second in South America together with Uruguay.
"Looking at the track, you have to say it's got a good combination of corners," said Mahindra driver Bruno Senna, one of the first two South American drivers to seal an FE seat along with fellow ex-Formula 1 man Lucas di Grassi at Abt. "There's a chicane, some high-speed turns with a change of direction and slow-speed as well. It's impossible to tell from the map about undulation, but I think that it could make for an interesting race and it will be fun to drive.
"I think the main overtaking point will be into Turn 1 under braking, or maybe into T4 or even T5. T7 is a possible passing point too, so it does lend itself to some potential overtakes, but we'll have to see when we get there."
The first Formula E championship kicks off on Sept. 13 in Beijing.
