Six races from six different teams.
It’s been a thrilling Formula-E season and also the phase of the campaign begins on Saturday – you may trace live coverage.
Portugal’s Antonio Felix da Costa carries a one-point tournament lead over Belgium’s Jerome D’Ambrosio.
Reigning champion Jean-Eric Vergne is third after winning Sanya, China, with the Sam Bird in place of Britain.
Bird, that had been forced having gone into the race of the standings, would be hoping to repeat the race win of a year in Italy.
“Winning last year was such an remarkable atmosphere, especially infront of such passionate motorsport fans,” said the Englishman. “Obviously, it’d be great to do the exact same again this year, however, we’ll just have to see.
“The rivalry is seriously high this season with just 10 points now separating the top six drivers, and all six races so far have experienced that a distinct winner, therefore it is extremely receptive.
“As always, qualifying will probably be key, but if we can get this correct and commence from front then we’ve got the car or truck and the team to deliver”

Recap: Just how can Formula-E work?
As opposed to Formula 1, Formula-E is more friendly to the surroundings.
The activity was created with sustainability at heart, with organisers saying the purpose would be to”reduce our carbon footprint as far as possible”.
It does so by simply attaching its automobiles having a battery that uses renewable fuel, and tyres that, in addition to lasting an whole race, may be recycled. Meanwhile, the Audiences are invited to use public transport to get to events, with no parking available.
One disadvantage with corded cars had been they lacked the ability to last an whole race, resulting in the somewhat strange (and somewhat gimmicky) sight of drivers needing to exchange cars mid-race.
That will happen – this year’s Gen2 car is fitted.
With the auto world looking to modify into growing nearly exclusively electric cars over the next number of decades, Formula-E provides the stadium to them to test new technology.
Fan Boost and Attack Mode
Spectators play an integral role in the action.
‘Fan Boost’ has been a feature of the last few seasons, with viewers able to vote with an app to ascertain which driver gets some power during a race.
New this season is’Attack Mode’, which gives a speed boost to competitors after they drive through a allocated area on the track.
