While the 2.32km street circuit may be new to Nyck de Vries, Stoffel Vandoorne is already familiar with it from the finale to Season 5. The track runs through the district of Red Hook, has 14 turns and is relatively unchanged since the last E-Prix in 2019. What is new, though, is where the activation zone for Attack Mode is now positioned. It has been relocated this year from the exit at Turn 5 to the outside of Turn 10. This may sound like a minor detail, but optimising Attack Mode has proven to be crucial at previous races this season.
Once again, the New York City E-Prix will be a double header with one race taking place on Saturday and then another on Sunday. Saturday’s first race will get underway at 21:34 BST while Round 2 will kick off at 18:34 BST on Sunday.
