The Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team will well remember their home race and the season finale in Berlin at the end of their debut season when Stoffel Vandoorne and Nyck de Vries clinched the team’s first one-two victory in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. A year ago, the team won both the Drivers' and Teams' World Championships in Berlin.
This year, Stoffel heads the Drivers’ World Championship with a six-point lead over Jean-Eric Vergne in the run-up to Berlin. Nyck is eighth in the standings after this season’s six races. In the Team Championship, the Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team is 15 points ahead of DS Techeetah.
Racing will get under way at 17:30 on Friday with a shakedown to be followed by two practice sessions, one qualifying, and of course, the race on Saturday and Sunday. Race start will be at 14:04 BST on both days.
