Formula E returns to action this weekend with New Zealanders Nick Cassidy and Mitch Evans looking to continue a strong run of form which has seen the pair win the last four races between them.
The series will race on Saturday the 3rd and Sunday the 4th of June on the purpose-built Jakarta International E-Prix Circuit, Ancol Beach.
It’s the second time Formula E has raced in Jakarta, with Evans emerging victorious in Round 9 last year, taking his third of four race victories over the season.
The Jaguar TCS driver has bounced back from a tricky start to the season to take wins in Brazil and in the first race in Germany, before finishing fourth in Race 2. He went on to place second in Monaco to storm into championship contention, now sitting fourth and only 27 points off the top spot.
Cassidy leads the title battle, the Envision Autosport driver, having won the past two races in Berlin and Monaco. Cassidy has three further podiums in addition to his two wins, including as runner-up to Evans in Brazil. The Kiwi has only failed to score points in one race this season.
Cassidy’s lead stands at 20 points over early runaway leader Pascal Wehrlein, the German struggling for form of late and scoring only 21 points over the past five rounds.
Formula E kicks off the race weekend with the first practice at 8.25 pm (NZ time) on Friday night before returning for Practice 2 at 1.05 pm. Round 10 qualifying begins at 3.30 pm on Saturday, with the race following at 7.30 pm.
Sunday brings a third practice session, at 1.05 pm, before qualifying at 3.30 pm and the race at 7.30 pm.
All sessions will be shown live on Sky Sport.
