Fickle weather continued to be a hallmark of the 2018/2019 ABB FIA Formula E Championship when much of Saturday afternoon’s Paris E-Prix was affected by high winds and heavy showers. Drivers even faced a spell of hailstorms for the first time in the championship’s history, which made the French clash even more complex for the teams who had to keep adjusting the set-up of their respective cars as a function of the shifting conditions and their drivers’ racing styles.
Big temperature variations also played a big role in the streets of Paris, since the thermometer climbed from just a few degrees early in the morning to almost 15°C for the start of the race (track temperature: 23°C), before dropping to around 10°C again when rain swept over the French capital just 15 minutes into the e-prix.

 

Despite the rapidly-changing weather, the drivers were able to count on the latest-generation MICHELIN Pilot Sport which has repeatedly showcased its remarkable versatility since the start of Formula E’s ‘Season 5’ by providing competitive performance across an exceptionally broad spectrum of conditions.
