Turns 1 & 2:
The opening part of the lap is very close to the beach which can cause problems as the sand gets blown up onto the track. This can mean the surface is very different from session to session, especially if it’s a windy day. May make for interesting start as the lights go out!

Turns 4, 5 & 6:
These are some of the best places for overtaking as Turn 4 can be taken flat and then it will be a late braking contest going into the chicane (T5 & 6). It’s worth remembering though that the surface of the roads is very different in places, some parts are new, other parts are very old. This means there is more grip in certain parts of the track and other parts have lots of bumps.

X

Turns 13, 14 & 15:
Turn 13 is another mid-speed corner and a good exit here should give drivers the chance to go late on the brakes into T14 & 15. After that you have a short straight where maybe the Fan Boost could be used to ensure that driver stays ahead.

X

Turns 19 & 20:
There are many places where the track is not that wide, so it’s going to be a place where you really need to keep your concentration. It is quite tight on the final two turns but a good exit here should afford some overtaking possibilities, combined with the run into the opening chicane.

Circuit Guide

The Punta del Este Formula E race, or ePrix, takes place on December 13 2014 and forms the third of 10 races for the inaugural 2014/2015 season. At 1.1mile (2.8km) in length and featuring 20 turns, the street circuit is located along Punta del Este’s picturesque harbour - nicknamed the Monte-Carlo of South America - just south of Maldonado and is based on the track previously used for the TC2000 touring car events. Set on a beautiful beach backdrop, the tight, twisty layout uses a mix on medium straights and sharp turns, providing a challenge for the Formula E teams and drivers. The Punta del Este ePrix is the first of two races in South America alongside Buenos Aires (Round 4) on January 10, 2015.

Driver's guide

Juan Manuel Lopez

"It’s a very nice location, next to the sea and the beach. I think the best overtaking places would be in the first chicane after the start/finish straight and in Turn 5 under braking. There are many places where the track is not that wide too, so it’s going to be a place where you really need to keep your concentration. The surface of the road is very different in places, meaning there is more grip in certain parts of the track, but the Formula E cars are well prepared for that kind of transition. They run very high off the ground and with a bit of work on the set-up it will be ok."
