Punta del Este preview: the drivers hit the beach


Dubbed the ‘Monaco of South America’, the Punta del Este leg of the Formula E calendar will never fail to be a treat for all involved.

Oliver Rowland Formula E


As Heidfeld still recovers from his operation, young Brit Oliver Rowland will take to the course. Team-mate for the race Bruno Senna said he would offer advice to ensure Rowland hit the ground running: “My focus will be on helping him get to grips with the technology but I am confident that he will enjoy his Formula E debut.”

Things have been going well for Sebastien Buemi lately. Winning this exact course last year, and already off to a flying start this season, all eyes are on the young Swiss driver today.

You can watch the action yourself over on ITV4 from 6pm (GMT) this evening.

Remember to get your FanBoosts in before the race!
