• Round 4 – DS PENSKE touches down in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the home of sun, samba and Senna
  • After a strong start to S10, DS PENSKE is second in the Team Championship
  • Jean-Éric Vergne is currently third place in Drivers Championship, and Stoffel Vandoorne is 11th

After competing in Mexico and Saudi Arabia, DS PENSKE returns to action this weekend in Brazil, taking on the streets of Sao Paulo for the second time in the ABB FIA Formula E World Champhionship history. Round 4 in Sao Paulo will take place at 2:03pm local time on Saturday 16th March, 2024.

 Located around the Ahembi Sambadrome, one of the largest outdoor venues in the city, the 2.93 kilometre Sao Paulo circuit should be action-packed with its long straights and tight corners.

The track temperatures can reach some of the hottest of the season in Brazil and it is not uncommon to see sunshine followed quickly by a thunderstorm at this time of the year.

 After having accumulated a solid points haul in Mexico and Saudi Arabia,  the DS PENSKE squad is currently second in the Teams’ Championship and is determined to maximize its efforts this weekend to finish in the front row when the checkered flag falls.  For Stoffel Vandoorne, the 2022 Formula E World Champion, Sao Paulo is good circuit as he scored pole position here last year.

 The Team has worked tirelessly in the days since returning from Diriyah, focusing its development to chase every point. The 2 time Formula E Champion, the Frenchman Jean-Éric Vergne, sits currently third in the Drivers’ Championship and is prepared to fight hard to bring home the spoils of victory this weekend.

Stoffel Vandoorne, 2022 Formula E World Champion

‘So thrilled to be back in Sao Paulo and race again in this iconic city! With the team, we worked very hard between Riyadh and here, I spent a lot of time in the simulator to find the right strategy with my new race engineer. Last year, I started on pole position, feels like I have an unfinished business here and I am super determined to deliver a strong race this Saturday!’

 Jean-Eric Vergne, 2018 & 2019 Formula E Champion

‘Looking ahead to Sao Paulo, with the track going through the iconic Sambadromo, it is stunning.

With the team, we are on the right trajectory, I am pretty confident we can take a step forward, everyone in the team has one goal in mind, chasing these milliseconds to close the gap, I really want us to score as many poitst as we possibly can this weekend’.
