Jakarta-Natural-Beauty-of-Metropolitan-C


WHEN: This Saturday Morning, Race Start at 9.00 UK Time
WHERE: Jakarta
WHY: New Circuit, Extreme Weather conditions, a great Championship battle. What's not to like?



TROPICAL RACING IN FORMULA E!

Racing just a few meters from the Ocean, this Jakarta e-Prix is set to be something special.
Reminiscent of the Formula E Classic Punta Del Este, the Jakarta e-Prix Track is built just a few meters from the beach, in a spectacular location near the Jakarta International Football Stadium.

Being so close to the ocean and being in a troplical climate area, means that the Weather is going to be a factor in this weekend's race.
Monsoons & heavy showers shows up basically everyday, while the temperatures & the humidity levels are set to be high: 33°c & 75% humidity.

A physical challenge for the drivers.
But being so close to the ocean has its own advantages.

After a hot & sweaty drive around the Jakarta International Circuit, what's better than jump in the water for some surfing?

Tell Da Costa!


x12y7.png




The Jakarta e-Prix Circuit is a 2.4 km long dash around the coastline & the Ancol Beach City structure.
It's a Purpose-Built track for Formula E, an historic first for the electric serie!


The Circuit features 18 corners and a nice mixture of fast sections & more technical bits.

Fun fact: Circuit shape & layout is inspired by the
Bamboo Horses used for the traditional Kuda Lumping Dance



Kuda-Lumping-1.jpg



Main straight is one of the longest in FE, a 600 m sprint towards Turn 1, wich is a very wide & open right hander.
Clearly the best overtaking opportunity in the track!

Track narrows up for the next combination of corners: lift off the throttle for Turn 2, than braking while turning in the tighter Turn 3.
You'll have to carry the momentum out of the flatout Turn 4-5's, cause a curvy straight is coming next.


Another big braking zone in Turn 7, a 90° wide & open left hander wich leads into the most exciting section of the circuit.



FUOyo-B6-WAAk16-LY.jpg


Flatout kinks in Turn 9 & Turn 10, little lift in Turn 11 and full throttle in Turn 12, exiting close to the wall on exit at 160 km/h.
Should be one of the sections where drivers can make a real difference, balls needed!

Big braking zone in Turn 13, another great overtaking opportunity: Turn 13 is a hairpin, not too tight, that leads into the Attack Mode zone around Turn 16.

Another acceleration out of Turn 16 into Turn 17, a fast left bend that leads into the final corner of the track, Turn 18.




FTbo-B4-HXEAE85-Uy.png


Track should be very dusty to begin with, with possible sand on track, and that's without considering a possible rainstorm!
Grip should be pretty low, so we can expect those fast bends to be quite selective, with the cars sliding their way through.

Let's jump onboard with Oliver Rowland for a Simulator lap around Jakarta!

CHAMPIONSHIP BATTLE HEATING UP!


After a pretty solid Berlin's Double Header, Mercedes pupil Stoffel Vandoorne leads the Championship Standings by 12 points over Venturi's Edoardo Mortara, who scored BIG in Germany with a win & a 2nd

Jean Eric Vergne follows close in his Black&Gold DS Techeetah, at 95 points.

Mitch Evans & Robin Frijns lost some crucial points in the Berlin's weekend: the Jaguar & Envision drivers struggled around the Tempelhof, fighting for little points at the margin of Top 10.


Nyck De Vries bounced back up the order with a great win in Race 2, but he's still nearly 50 points behind the leader: Nyck The Quick will have to nail the next few weekends in order to get back into the Championship Fight.

Will be very interesting to see who responds best to the new challenges.  The track looks quite quick, but also seems like it may have multiple passing locations.

The circuit is definitely intriguing and feels like it kind of came out of nowhere. I've frequently said that FE should perhaps be moving to more of a semi-permanent circuit ethos and this is the first real attempt at that not relying on pre-existing venues.

To me, it very much feels like Montreal, but with high walls.  If it feels more open and by-the-sea than the sim video suggests then it could be a quite a smash hit.

Slightly surprising thing but this is the first ePrix held further east than Diriyah (and hence early morning in Europe) since the Sanya ePrix in March 2019.

Don't know what we'll see on the broadcasts but the fan zone stretches quite nicely towards the beach. Looks pretty nice too on Streetview as well.

Little bit of location history here, there's a little bit of overlap with the Jaya Ancol Circuit, active from 1969 to 1992 for various events.

After a little bit of digging around, I'm fairly sure the shots from 1:09 in this video are taken around the area of overlap between the two circuits (green dot on the image)

- 1 Day! 

 

Warm welcome in Indonesia, with Pre-Race events & a lot of buzz.
Full packed grandstands expected tomorrow.

Nyck De Vries is the adopted local Hero!

The Dutch driver has indonesian blood in his veins, so a lot of media & public attention around him 

Can he get another win & comeback into the Title Contention Fight?

Quali is around 1 hour long in total, bar interruptions.

So from 4.45 to 5.45 UK time.  :up: 

I'll try get up for Quali as it should be Great around there!
But if i Fail (likely) my Recorder is ready to do the job.  :lol:

 

In the worst case i'll catch up with quali before the race. 

 

 

 

A reminder of the schedule

 

Starting tonight!

Don't think we've had such a warm race day venue with temperature concerns since perhaps Santiago 
 
Which does remind me... the Marrakesh race in the past it has been held between November and March when average highs don't usually climb above 20-25°C. This year it will be in July, the peak of summer when average highs can be 32-37°C.

 

Might be a brutal race for temperatures, that one.

Just caught up with all of tonight's action!

LOVED IT!

Wide track, pretty fast in parts, very technical in others.
And LOW GRIP, cars were sliding everywhere.

Hot temperatures could lead to some surprising results, and possible DNF's 

 

DS Techeetah front row lockout: great pole for JEV, Vandoorne & Mortara will have to contain the frenchman in the race.  :up:

Should be a fun race, plenty of overtaking spots around.

 

Turn 1 is one of the widest FE corners ever, should be a great battle there at the race start.

 

 

 

STARTING GRID

Start at 9.00 UK TIME (-1 h & 40 min)

Just caught up with qualifying! Looks like a fun circuit, and I get the sense it has been built with Gen 3 in mind too, which is reassuring. Looking forward to a good race  :up:

Apparently according to the broadcast that's Jean-Eric Vergne's 15th Pole Position, which would put him ahead of Buemi's previous record of 14. 

 

My list has that as: 

 

2014 Punta del Este 

2015 Miami 

2015 Moscow 

2016 Berlin

2017 Hong Kong 

2018 Santiago 

2018 Punta del Este 

2018 Paris

2019 Bern 

2020 Berlin  III

2020 Berlin IV

2021 Berlin I

2022 Rome

2022 Jakarta 

 

...which is 14... so the question I have is which one have I missed?

Maybe he got a pole by some DSQ of other drivers that we cannot remember?

2019 Monaco ePrix

 

Was just as you suggested, Rowland set the fastest time in qualifying but received a 3 place drop for causing a collision in Paris, so Vergne started from pole.

Nice layout, but it lacks the character of a real street circuit. This is more like an F1 "street circuit". I wonder if we shall see any reliability woes today, it should be interesting.
