As announced by the championship for female racing drivers, from the coming season a partnership will be entered into with the premier class and will be driving on eight racing weekends as part of Formula 1. "It is an important moment for us to welcome the W-Series as a partner for eight races," says Formula 1 sports director Ross Brawn.

Die jetzige Situation ist für die Formel E nicht tragbar, findet Sam Bird © Motorsport Images The current situation is unsustainable for Formula E, Sam Bird thinks Race on the Circuit Ricardo Tormo should install barriers to prevent discussions about track limits. The track at the gates of Valencia will host the Spanish E-Prix on April 24th. Should the

Rome-E-Prix go on as planned on April 10th and not take place on the alternative track Vallelunga, Valencia would be the first thoroughbred racing track for Formula E, on which other racing classes also drive. Marrakech is considered a temporary circuit and in Mexico City, Formula E runs on its own track layout.

The final route for Valencia is not yet known. Formula E tried out several possible routes during the winter test. Bird believes that there must be additional barriers on the track to prevent track limit violations. Despite new FIA rules, track limits were a constant issue during the test drives.

"I would be interested in whether they will put up barriers," Bird told Motorsport-Total.com. "We have seen over the past three to four years that [Valencia] with no track limits is quite a waste of time." D'Ambrosio also calls for conversions

"I know they tried to get them this time, but there were still discussions. To be honest, I would like them to put up barriers. Then we would all have to stick to the track limits hold. That would make it interesting. "

The new deputy Venturi team boss Jerome D'Ambrosio is no longer part of the unofficial Formula E drivers' union, which allows its inputs to flow into the design of the racetracks. But the former Dragon and Mahindra driver feels that changes are needed to the Valencia circuit to make it a "typical" Formula E circuit.

"Modifications are needed to make the track Formula E-like. That would be more exciting for our cars and for the championship. Valencia really isn't easy. This track is perhaps the most difficult, though it's about giving her Formula E DNA. "

"It's not ideal, but we're trying to find the best possible calendar. It won't be easy to make them look like Rome or Mexico. But with a few tweaks you can get it done." The teams expect the final track layout for Valencia just a few weeks before the weekend.
