Penultimate dance in London

The Electric World Championship is presented to the English double event with a five-point difference between the leader Bird and his pursuers, Da Costa and Frijns.

The London ePrix (24-25 July) will be the penultimate event of the season. With everything to be decided, the British track is dressed up and has many changes. The FIA has decided to shorten the circuit to two kilometers, even going from 52 kW / h to 48 kW / h the limit of energy consumption in each car. The FIA has opted for a long distance race over speed on a historic circuit. In addition, it will be the first time that a world championship competes on a circuit with outdoor and indoor areas, since the initial and final part of the track will be run indoors.The excitement is in the drivers and constructors standings. The victories of Maximilian Guenther, BMW I Andretti driver, and Sam Bird, Jaguar driver, in New York have tightened both classifications if possible. The Drivers 'World Championship has the top three riders in just five points, as is the case in the constructors' classification.

Sam Bird's victory and pole position in the last race saw the British rider face the end of the season as the leader. He leads the standings with 81 points ahead of Antonio Félix Da Costa, DS Techeetah driver, and Robin Frijns, Envision Virgin driver, both with 76 points. The second classified and current champion of the competition will make things difficult for Bird, he comes from being third in the last test along with the fastest lap.

The Constructors' World Cup is also red hot, first and second classified are at 2 points (146-144). The leading team is Envision Virgin, followed by DS Techeetah and third ranked Jaguar with 141 points. Same equality as between the riders, it assures us that this weekend, pole positions and fastest laps could be the determining factor of both final classifications.

After passing through the British track, Formula E will have its last appointment at the Berlin E-Prix (August 14-15). The competition promises to be vibrant and we will see if both World Cups reach Germany as tight as they are now.
