Temperatures as high as 35 C (95 F) could present the biggest challenge for the teams that will be competing on Saturday in the Santiago ePrix, the third race of the 2019-2020 Formula E Championship.

The intense heat has been felt since Wednesday by the 12 teams' mechanics, whose main concern is ensuring that the drivers of the 24 electric open-wheel racing cars can maximize their battery power.

Saturday's race at the Chilean capital's Parque O'Higgins street circuit, which features 11 turns, will last just over 45 minutes.
