About the circuit

Every track on the Formula E roster has its quirks, and the Tempelhof circuit is no different.

The concrete surface here is particularly abrasive. On the very first turn, a long straight leading into one of the longest corners of the season necessitates simultaneous heavy braking and turning. This generates high g-forces in both transverse and longitudinal directions on the tyres, leading to some serious heating. During the race thermal management will be crucial to maintain performance.

Turn 9 provides the best chance for overtaking on the track. With two longer straights leading in and out of it, and a variety of possible driving lines preventing natural blocking, we should see some really interesting overtaking maneuvers here.

Last season’s race provided EMOTION club ticket holders with seats inside a tunnel the track goes through, and there is every indication this will be available again this year. The structure provides fans with unbelievably close views of the race. If there was ever time to splash out and upgrade your ticket, now’s the time!
