Not that I am a fan of it, but I did watch my first Formula E race the other day whilst I had nothing better to do. It was in Mexico City at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. The same place where F1 races.

They created a shorter track for the Formula E cars wherein there is basically a clockwise oval with a few chicanes here and there. The first turn (right) is immediately after pit out and cuts across to the back stretch.

What I found interesting, though, is a reconfiguration of the twisty bits inside the old baseball stadium. I immediately wondered if F1 was to use this configuration, but also thought that maybe the F1 cars might be too fast for it.

On www.formula1.com a layout of the Mexico City circuit is illustrated and it is the same as last year.

To view the reconfiguration for the Formula E race, just check out this short youtube clip. They enter the stadium around the 50 seconds mark.

As for the race itself.... I found the newer layout/reconfiguration more interesting.

The problem with any configuration they use in the stadium is that they will all be mickey mouse.

I'd prefer they go around it and use the proper Peraltada...but then they couldn't sell all those tickets for the stadium section..

That turn 1 inside wall looks vicious, as does the chicane behind the grandstand where the F1 track emerges. Decent circuit otherwise, and interesting that they can reconfigure the stadium at will.
