London’s Battersea Park staged the final double-header race weekends for the first two Formula E seasons in 2015 and 2016. A 1.818-mile temporary road course on the narrow perimeter road had a chicane opposite the pit entry and start-line alongside the River Thames. It was criticised for being too bumpy, so much so that Jérôme d’Ambrosio’s rear suspension collapsed in the Turn 1 during the inaugural event. Seventh in race two that year was enough for Nelson Piquet Jr to beat Sébastien Buemi to the 2014/15 title by a single point. Nicolas Prost won both races in 2016. The use of a Grade II listed park had always met with local resistance and the 2016 races only went ahead on the understanding that Battersea Park would not be included on the Season Three calendar.
