A wide entry into Redgate, a brisk downward sweep into the Craner Curves and then a long climb up to McLean's and Coppice. Certainly for the first two fast and flowing sectors, the Donington Park Grand Prix circuit isn't especially representative of the narrow and staccato nature of the barrier-lined street tracks that Formula E frequents.
But the final sector - a very FE-like chicane of The Esses, the tight loop of the Melbourne Hairpin and then the slow Goddards left-hander to complete the lap - are a bit closer in characteristics when the circuit, sitting under the flight path of East Midlands Airport, played host to pre-season testing for the first three years of FE.
That meant the final times bore some resemblance to the eventual competitive order. Consistently the quickest pair in testing ahead of the inaugural 2014-15 season were e.dams driver Sebastien Buemi and Abt racer Lucas di Grassi. They would go on to score second and third in the final standings. The unpredictable fly in the ointment was Nelson Piquet Jr. He only contested the final day at Donington, setting the 11th fastest time, before signing full-time for China Racing and running out as the maiden champion.
