The city is divided into many districts: La Boca, La Recoleta, Puerto Madero, Palermo y el Centro and the oldest San Telmo, each with its own cultural and each deserving a visit (if you can!). Whether you’re looking for designer fashion, exquisite cuisine or nightlife that doesn’t stop, this vibrant metropolis leaves little room for disappointment.

The race is one of two in South America along with Punta del Este in Uruguay (Round Three) on December 13 2014.
Bruno Senna, Mahindra Racing:
“Looking at the track, you have to say it’s got a good combination of corners. There’s a chicane, some high-speed turns with a change of direction and slow-speed as well. It’s impossible to tell from the map about undulation, but I think that it could make for an interesting race and it will be fun to drive. I think the main overtaking point will be into Turn 1 under braking, or maybe into T4 or even T5. T7 is a possible passing point too, so it does lend itself to some potential overtakes, but we’ll have to see when we get there.”
