2015 London ePrix

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 2015 London ePrix, officially known as the 2015 Visa London ePrix, was two Formula E motor races that took place on the 27 and 28 June 2015 on the Battersea Park Street Circuit in Battersea Park, London. It was the tenth and eleventh rounds of the 2014–15 Formula E season, the last of the inaugural season of Formula E.[1]

Background to race weekend

In December 2013, the FIA approved a Formula E calendar of ten races, of which London was the 10th and last race.[2] Wandsworth Council eventually approved of the circuit and also announced that it would be a double race on the 19 February 2015.[3]

There was some controversy over the park circuit which took place in a Grade II* listed park with opposition to a public park being disrupted to accommodate the races. Battersea Park was closed to the public for four days with a three-week disruption period and a decision has yet to be taken on a repeat race.[4]

Since the previous ePrix in Moscow, five driver changes were made. The first of these was that Jaime Alguersuari had been replaced by Fabio Leimer,[5] as the Spaniard was forced to withdraw due to health issues.[6] He was the first of three new Swiss drivers (taking the total 4), with Alex Fontana[7] and Simona de Silvestro[8] replacing Vitantonio Liuzzi and Justin Wilson respectively. De Silvestro's appearance in Formula E makes her the eighth driver to drive for Andretti this season, the sixth in the second car, and the third female driver in series history. Also making their first appearance was Sakon Yamamoto, who replaces António Félix da Costa as the Portuguese driver is driving for BMW in DTM,[9] and Oliver Turvey, who replaces Charles Pic, becoming the fourth different driver to drive the second car for NEXTEV Team China Racing.[10]
