ALEX'S TRACK VIEW

I'm going to get to race in some amazing places during my first full season in Formula E, and Hong Kong is definitely one of those. It's in a fantastic location, by the water in front of all the skyscrapers, and I've heard from other drivers that the track is really fun and challenging. We saw a really action-packed race last year too, so it should be a great way to start the season.
