The FIA Formula E Championship returns to action this weekend for the third round of the 2018/19 season, the Santiago E-Prix.

Mahindra Racing's Jerome d'Ambrosio claimed a dramatic (and unlikely) victory last time out after the BMW duo of Antonio Felix da Costa and Alexander Sims clashed while squabbling over the lead, with d'Ambrosio taking full advantage to move into the lead of the championship. 

Here's all the information you need to follow the second-ever Santiago E-Prix this weekend.
