The barriers used to construct the Formula E track in Berlin have been taken out of storage to be used in response to the recent attack in Berlin.

The Concrete blocks, which way four tonnes apiece, have been placed around the Christmas markets in the city after a lorry was driven into them on Monday, killing 12 people.

"We are directly in touch with the police department to assist with the organisation and handling of the barriers to various areas around Berlin," said Ulrich Weingartner, Managing Partner at Gil und Weingartner - Berlin ePrix event organiser.

"Formula E is working with us to provide the concrete barriers from storage free of charge to help protect the Christmas markets. We are not sure whether these barriers will also be used for the New Year’s Eve celebrations at Brandenburg Gate, but we are ready to provide materials if necessary."
