The winner of the second season of the FIA Formula E Championship will be decided at Battersea Park in London on July 2nd and 3rd. The finale will see drivers Lucas di Grassi and Sebastien Buemi battle it out for the all-electric racing crown.
"We've had eight races and the points gap is almost back to zero, and now we go to a track that is the most different from all the other tracks," says Di Grassi.
"It's very cambered, there are a lot of corners and it's very narrow. It's technically very difficult to drive there and it's the second longest track of the season. The weather unpredictability in London could play a big role because qualifying is divided into groups, which are random, and as happened last year, if you pick a group during which there is rain – that could define the race."
Buemi adds: "We are not just fighting for the drivers' championship but the teams' championship too. So from a pure driver's perspective you would think that the only objective is to finish ahead of Lucas. But from a team point of view the other championship is very important too. When we get there we'll do practice and qualifying and look at the weather. Obviously, everything could look different after qualifying..."
The Battersea Park track is 1.8 miles (3km) long and features 17 corners. Season one drivers achieved average speeds of 75.4mph (121.3km/h), but thanks to new regulations spectators should expect to see the Formula E cars go even faster.
