Formula E has revealed an extended track layout for the upcoming round in Mexico around the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriquez.
The event takes place on February 15th, and is the fourth round of the 2019/20 season.
The updated circuit has the same opening two corners, however Turn 3 has been changed so that it is now a left-hand turn that leads to the Turn 5 hairpin, with a small kink of Turn 4 included.
Turns 6 and 7 then lead back onto Turn 8, which marks the return of the layout that has been used in previous years.
The final corner is now a long swooping right-hand turn, and no longer features a chicane that had formerly been used.
Last year, the Mexico ePrix saw a dramatic finish as Lucas di Grassi snatched victory from Pascal Wehrlein at the line, as the latter ran out of battery usage on the run-up to the timing line.
