The Putrajaya Formula E racetrack is promised to be exciting. The 2.56 kilometre temporary circuit is located in the centre of the Government area and features 12 turns. In comparison with Beijing, the track looks very natural and includes only one chicane after start and finish. The race will go over 31 laps on Saturday 2pm local time. Find out how the track looks like in the photos below.

“The Putrajaya race track has a great layout, it has quite a character,” finds Chandhok. “Every corner is different in terms of angles and camber. The road has some jumps and bumps at the breaking points, so this will be quite an adventure. The last corner is probably five cars wide. We’ll need to get up early tomorrow, but hopefully we miss the rain instead. I’m looking forward to it.”
