Formula E comes back after nearly a month off and is ready to race in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for the first time.

After Round 5, held in Cape Town three weeks ago, Formula E returns to race in yet another new location on the 2023 calendar: Brazil. The Sao Paulo E-Prix will be the home race for Mahindra’s Lucas di Grassi, and for Sergio Sette Camara, who drives for the NIO 333 team.

The Circuit – Sao Paulo E-Prix

The layout featured 14 turns over 2.933 kilometers, with three main straights. The drivers will face two high-speed sectors, composed of chicanes and the straights, while the third sector will be fundamental for the overtaking on track.

Current Standings

Drivers’ Championship

After a memorable win by António Félix da Costa in Cape Town, the midfield positions in the standing changed slightly, but Pascal Wehrlein remains on top. The German driver is followed by Jake Dennis but a bad weekend could put Wehrlein’s leadership in danger.

  1. Pascal Wehrlein – 80 points
  2. Jake Dennis – 62
  3. Jean-Eric Vergne – 50
  4. Antonio Felix Da Costa – 46
  5. Nick Cassidy – 43

Teams’ Championship

While Porsche extended its leadership, Envision overtook Andretti in the championship for second place. The two teams will be hoping for a positive weekend in Brazil to close the gap to Porsche.

  1. Tag Heuer Porsche – 126 points
  2. Envision – 84
  3. Avalanche Andretti– 80
  4. Neom McLaren – 66
  5. DS Penske – 61

Race Predictions

After a wild race in Cape Town, many drivers will be in search of payback in Sao Paouo. The favorite driver for the win is, once again Pascal Wehrlein, but Jake Dennis and Jake Hughes could feature as key drivers to watch for in qualifying.
