Campos Racing will be contesting the fourth season of the FIA Formula E as the Spain-based team will run the M4ELECTRO cars in collaboration with Mahindra Racing. Mahindra Racing performed extremely well the last season as both Felix Rosenqvist and Nick Heidfeld proved to be a strong pairing to fight for top honours.

Rosenqvist, on his first season in the FIA Formula E series, ranked 3rd in the drivers’ standings with one win, three second places and one third place finish to his name and including three pole positions and two fastest laps. On the other hand, Heidfeld finished 7th in the classification with five rostrum finishes. Besides, Mahindra Racing secured 3rd place in the Teams’ classification.

The excellent previous campaign generate optimism ahead of the 2017-18 season. Mahindra Racing is working to be in title contention with their all-electric M4ELECTRO cars. The season comprises 14 races to take place in Hong Kong (double-header), Marrakech, Mexico, Paris, Berlin, New York (double-header), Montreal (double-header) and the latest additions: Santiago, Roma and Zürich. Sao Paulo will be replaced for another round to be announced in due time as the Brazilian venue was postponed to 2019.

The Hong Kong HarbourFront Circuit will kick off the season with two races respectively on Saturday and Sunday. Last year, Heidfeld stepped third onto the podium and Rosenqvist scored the fastest lap.

Both races will get underway at 15.03, local times, both days.
