It’s time to wish our Indian
racer Karun Chandhok and his Mahindra Racing Formula E team the very best as
they will be back in action on January 10, 2015 as the FIA Formula E
Championship gears up to tackle the streets of Buenos Aires in Argentina. Karun
Chandhok and his team-mate Bruno Senna will be back out on track in South
America just a few short weeks after their previous visit to the continent in
The fourth round of the season in
Buenos Aires is likely to be a scorching affair for the drivers and teams as
they race during the height of summer, with temperatures reaching up to 40
degrees. This would mean regulating the temperature of the battery and
components of the Mahindra racing car will be essential throughout the weekend.
The circuit features 12 turns
around the 2.44km configuration and unlike the previous beach side round in
Uruguay, the Buenos Aires ePrix will be held within the capital’s Puerto Madero
district. The city of Buenos Aires makes for an exciting prospect for the
entire paddock and it is anticipated that the population will be out in full
force supporting the race in the Argentinean capital.
The previous round in Punta del
Este, Uruguay, saw Senna walk away with his first points of the season
following a sixth place finish. Chandhok meanwhile was unfortunate to find
himself forced to change his race-plan following damage caused by a high kerb;
bringing him in earlier than hoped during the race.
However, both drivers came away
from the third round of the season feeling confident in the car and the pace
they had achieved in the post race test.
Looking ahead to the fourth round
Karun Chandhok said, "Punta del Este wasn't the best weekend for us as a
team and we weren't quite as competitive as we had been in the opening two
rounds. The test on the Sunday gave us a lot of answers and we're looking
forward to being back out there and on form in Buenos Aires. The aim has to be
to try and get a podium soon because we have the potential, we just need to
Chandhok is supported by long term supporters
