Williams do not. Instead, they have three strong drivers that give them bags of tactical flexibility in relay races. Can the trio of Stefanko, Wisniewski, and Brzezinski force their way to the front and control the team race though?

Prediction: Aston Martin 3-1 Williams Esports

YAS Heat vs BMW

Tuesday, 18 May - BT Sport 3 @ 8pm BST - ESPN3 @ 6pm EST

BMW looked on for the Group B title, but a huge loss to McLaren saw them finish second. That result gave them a quarter-final match against Group A's 3rd place team YAS Heat, who have been competitive week-in and week-out this season.

YAS' trio of Simon Weigang, Manuel Biancolilla, and Cedric Thome have been growing in confidence all season, as well as ironing out their teamwork issues.

BMW however, has a superstar in Kevin Siggy and strong support from Michael Romanidis and Alen Terzic. If Siggy gets to the first corner first it could be all over in the team races.

Prediction: BMW 3-1 YAS Heat
