What to expect from Formula E at a traditional racetrack

Valencia’s Circuit Ricardo Tormo is a track Formula E knows well, as host to testing four years on the spin. “Valencia is also a new experience for all the grid,” said Ian James, Mercedes-EQ Team Principal. “As Formula E teams, we haven’t had much exposure to permanent tracks like the Circuit Ricardo Tormo, so it’s hard to know what to expect.”. “The Valencia circuit is very different to the one we raced on in Rome,” adds Mercedes’ Stoffel Vandoorne. Rome was a narrow, bumpy street circuit while Valencia is a permanent circuit that has been slightly modified to be a little more twisty and better-suited to Formula E. “Its circuit characteristics are very different: the corners are actually pretty fast and long, making Valencia a major challenge in terms of energy management. “Valencia is a track that we know well from pre-season testing but all in all. It’s a different challenge to set up the car for the race.
