A construction worker has died during the build process of the Tempelhof Airport circuit in Berlin ahead of it hosting the 2019-20 Formula E season finale next month.
The venue will accommodate six races across 5/6, 8/9, 12/13 August, which will be split into three double-header events and each brace of E-Prix will run on a different circuit configuration.
Autosport understands that while work was underway at the former American military Cold War terminal to prepare the venue, an on-site construction worker was involved in an incident and died.
A statement from an FE spokesperson issued to Autosport read: "We can confirm that there was a fatal accident on site at Tempelhof Airport today, Wednesday 29 July."
The exact nature of the incident is not clear at this moment in time.
