Buenos Aires plays host to Round 4 of FIA Formula E championship fight
Lucas di Grassi remains the championship leader as the FIA Formula E series heads to Argentina for Saturday’s Buenos Aires ePrix.
The Brazilian Audi Sport Abt driver is the only driver to have finished on the podium for every Formula E race to date, and will aim to keep that streak alive on the 12-turn 1.5-mile street circuit located in the Puerto Madero district, just east of Buenos Aires.
Three FIA Formula E races have been held to date, with a different driver taking the spoils each time: Lucas di Grassi, Sam Bird and Sebastien Buemi.
Last week, it was announced that French Formula E driver Franck Montagny had been suspended by the FIA after failing a drug test in November. Marco Andretti will be taking his place in the Andretti Formula E team this weekend, teaming up with former Formula One driver Jean-Eric Vergne.
