Formula E lands in India for the first time, ready to race the fourth round of Season 9: the Hyderabad E-Prix. 

After a two-week break, Formula E leaves Saudi Arabia to race in India, one of the new entries on the 2023 calendar. A new circuit in a new country will challenge drivers as they look to keep pace with the two early title contenders. Of the eleven teams on the grid, the most excited has to be Mahindra, which will be running in its first home race. 

The Circuit – Hyderabad E-Prix

The E-Prix will take place on the Hyderabad Street Circuit, a brand-new track created just for this event. It features 18 turns spread over 2.830 kilometers. The layout has been designed by Driven International, which also worked on the Yas Marina F1 circuit. Hyderabad will be surprising for the drivers, the teams, and the audience, with many elements like energy expenditure, tire grip, and overtaking possibilities still unknown.   

Current Standings

Drivers’ Championship

After winning both the races of the Diriyah E-Prix, Pascal Wehrlein is first in the standings, but Jake Dennis is just behind him, and a good result could bring the British driver back to the top.

  1. Pascal Wehrlein – 68 points
  2. Jake Dennis – 62
  3. Sébastian Buemi – 31
  4. Sam Bird – 28
  5. Jake Hughes – 27

Teams’ Championship

The dominance of Porsche’s motorized teams is visible, with Andretti and Porsche holding the first two positions. They are separated from the rest of the grid by a small but significant gap.

  1. Avalanche Andretti – 76 points
  2. Tag Heuer Porsche – 74
  3. Neom McLaren – 53
  4. Envision Racing – 41
  5. Jaguar TCS – 39

Race Predictions

The results of the first rounds of the season have shown a strong dominance from Porsche and Andretti. The Hyderabad E-Prix could be the confirmation of the superiority of these teams. The previous race battles were between Wehrlein and Dennis, but things in Formula E can change fast. McLaren has demonstrated their competitiveness, and after achieving its first podium in Diriyah, the British team could be a contender for the win.
