About the circuit

The Circuit Des Invalides is a gripping one to watch, with action from the very first corner as all twenty cars decelerate from almost 200 km/h into the tight right hand turn.

 Given the tightly packed grid, there will almost inevitably be collisions and intense battling for position in this first corner. The track then narrows over the next few turns due to the tight Parisian streets.  Turn 9 is a sharp bend of more than 90 degrees, and the slowest in the circuit. However the road opens up as the long straight to Turn 10 presents itself, and we will see the Formula E racers under maximum acceleration here for sure.

The track surface will provide the drivers with a challenge, with overlapping zones of different tarmac throughout the length of the circuit providing some rough transitions. This combined with its narrow lanes, sharp turns and short length mean that the Circuit Des Invalides is up there with Hong Kong contending for the most technical track of the calendar.
