The administrative capital of Malaysia, Putrajaya hosted the second round of the 2014/15 Formula E season on the 22nd of November, 2014.[1] Like Beijing, the Putrajaya ePrix would return for the second season of Formula E, again hosting the second round of the season.[2]

City HistoryEdit

Originally founded by the British as Air Hitam in 1918, Putrajaya emerged as a candidate to replace the increasingly crowded city of Kuala Lumpur as the capital of Malaysia.[3] In the 1980s, the government announced its intention to develop the former estate as a city, with an emphasis on green spaces.[3] The majority of the Malaysian Government's departments moved to Putrajaya in 2001, with Putrajaya signing a cooperation agreement of Sejong City in South Korea in 2013.[3]

Formula E HistoryEdit

Nicolas Prost would claim pole for the first Putrajaya ePrix, but was forced down the grid due to a penalty, meaning Oriol Servià actually led off the line.[4] Despite this, Sam Bird claimed victory from Lucas di Grassi and Sébastien Buemi, taking his and Virgin Racing's first victory.[4] The second running of the race saw Buemi set fastest lap and pole position after dominating the early part of the weekend, only to be hit with overheating issues.[2] That handed victory to di Grassi, with Bird ending the race in second, and Dutchman Robin Frijns finishing third, despite breaking his suspension.[2]

Circuit LayoutEdit

The Putrajaya circuit was formed in the Persiaran Perdana area of the city.[1] The circuit will run past the major administrative buildings of the city, measuring 2.5 km (1.55 mi) in length with 12 corners.[1] The first Malaysian based ePrix circuit featured a mixture of long slow to medium speed corners, broken up by long straights and a couple of hairpin turns.[1] The first corner ultimately proved to be the most severe, seeing the FE cars decelerate to around 70 kph from 200 kph.
