April 26, first day of this Parisian race weekend for Formula E. This first day was a bit like calm before the storm. After a usual track walk for the drivers in the morning, it was already time to race ! But virtually. In fact, the E-Race qualifying took place where some amateur drivers could battle against Formula E drivers to get the pole position for the E-Race that was taking place the day after. Always good fun for the drivers and mostly for the amateurs !

After taking part in an autograph session, the Formula E drivers were going to properly taste the track for the first time this weekend…

That was shakedown day for everyone, one for the Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy which is the support series and one for Formula E. These shakedowns were the occasion to check electronic systems and reliability of the car for the drivers, nothing about performance as the cars run at reduced speed during these sessions. Still, the Formula E shakedown has been shortened by a crash from Felipe Massa.

The day ended up with the first and only Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY practice session, this time, cars were starting to be pushed to their limits for the first time of the weekend.

Today is race day. Leading the championship for now, will Jérôme D’Ambrosio still be at the top of the drivers’ championship by the end of the race ? Will we see an 8th winner this season ? Can the French man Jean-Eric Vergne shine again in his home race ? Lots of questions to be answered ! Coming soon…
