The second round of the Formula E racing series in Malaysia is now underway.

Qualifying groups have been announced:

Qualifying groups for the 2014 FIA Formula E Ycapital Management Putrajaya ePrix have been announced (see below).

The lottery draw was made during the Drivers’ Briefing ahead of tomorrow’s qualifying session which gets underway at 10:00am (local time) on the 2.5km Malaysian street circuit. With a high chance of rain tomorrow, the order could prove crucial in determining who secures the pole position spot, earning three points in the process.

The qualifying session is a straight fight for the fastest laptime and determines the order for the day’s race. The session will last 55 minutes (40 minutes track) and see drivers divided into four groups of five cars, with each group having 10 minutes to set their best time. Full power (200kw / 270bhp) will be available throughout with drivers only able to use one car.

Action gets underway at 7:45am (local time) with full coverage and live timing on the official website.

Is Malaysia also a street course?

They’re all street courses.

Let’s hope they drop the crazy “E-Jay”….music DJ to try to entertain the crowd. If you saw him at Beijing, whoosh – what a joke!

Hope Dario Franchitti has boned up on his electric cars – the guys were struggling on race 1. The crash saved the race – sad to say, as it was very vanilla, no passing and slow speeds.

Now, as an EV fan – I was thrilled. Got the race scheduled on the DVR, hope the series prospers and grows. Should be more interesting when teams can front their own cars.
