The Buenos Aires ePrix at Puerto Madero is the only race and track to have featured in all three FIA Formula E Championship seasons, so as a result it creates a wealth of interesting facts and stats. Here is a selection of favourites.

Hat-trick hero? With back-to-back wins in Hong Kong and Marrakesh, Sebastien Buemi is on the verge of making Formula E history and winning three races in a row.

Still on a roll… Those two wins means that Buemi has extended the number of races in a row in which he has scored points to 18. The run started in Long Beach – round six in Season 1! Stephane Sarrazin’s failure to trouble the scorers in Marrakesh ended the second longest run, passing that honour to Nico Prost, who’s been in the points for the past six races.

Dream team: Renault e.dams is the only team to have scored a point at every single Formula E race. The 37 points scored in Marrakesh increased its record tally to 576.

High riser: Da Costa’s win from seventh on the grid in the Season 1 Buenos Aires ePrix remains the lowest starting position from which a Formula E race has been won.

Quick dash: With an average speed of 114.5kmh, the Buenos Aires ePrix was the third fastest race on the Season 2 calendar. Buemi’s unofficial lap record, set in second practice last year, was recorded at an average of 129.8kmh, second only to the high speeds attained at Long Beach.

Bird’s paradise: Sam Bird has an excellent record in Buenos Aires, having set fastest lap on his way to seventh in Season 1, while he was the lights-to-flag winner following an excellent race in Season 2. Other drivers to have two top 10 finishes in Argentina are Prost, Sarrazin, Nick Heidfeld and Bruno Senna.
