How will the Formula E pack cope with the heat in Santiago? Follow this page for all the action and live timing from Chile.



How to watch





What happened last time out in Chile? Catch up on the action from the 2019 Antofagasta Minerals Santiago E-Prix
Parque O'Higgins



After one of the most spectacular showdowns in the history of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship took place last season, the city will once again play host as the on-track action returns to Parque O'Higgins. The track winds its way around the park as all 24 Gen2 cars and drivers navigate their way around the challenging turns and straights.

Lap record   Daniel Abt, Audi Sport Abt Schaeffler (2019) - 1:11.263






Previous winners


2019 - Sam Bird, Enivision Virgin Racing
2018 - Jean-Eric Vergne, Techeetah–Renault





Three to watch out for in Santiago




Sam Bird



Envision Virgin Racing's Sam Bird opened the year with a victory, but despite leaving Saudi Arabia with a win and a DNF, he's still sitting comfortably in third place in the standings. The bearded Brit will be aiming for a repeat of last season's race after he scored a commanding win in the scorching heat of the Parque O'Higgins circuit.



Alexander Sims



Alexander Sims is on a roll so far this season - the BMW i Andretti Motorsport driver has taken every pole position since the last race in New York City and claimed his debut Formula E win in the second race at the SAUDIA Diriyah E-Prix. With this kind of pace, the Brit must be riding on a wave of confidence coming into the third round in Santiago.




Jean-Eric Vergne


At the start of the season Jean-Eric Vergne was the hunted man, the reigning Champion was sat in the crosshairs of the entire Formula E pack. His title defence got off to a rough start at the first two rounds in Saudi, where the Frenchman was derailed by a technical problem in the first race and faced a devastating penalty in the second, which dropped him to the back of the grid.



Despite the setback, our key protagonist demonstrated why he's a two-time champion with a heroic points finish. Coming into Santiago, the roles have been reversed as Vergne is now on the hunt.
