Pascal Wherlein arrives in Diriyah after a dominant showing in the season opener in Mexico City where he won the race. The Diriyah Street Circuit, located just outside of the Saudi capital, Riyadh, is a challenging circuit that will test battery management and overall pace. With the two races up for grabs and limited practice time the drivers will have to bring their ‘A’ game right from the start. There’s no time for mistakes in practice or qualifying on a double header weekend. Wherlein heads into the weekend with a head full of confidence and determination to repeat the result from the opening round.
