Supercharged host Nicki Shields caught up with DS Virgin’s Argentine driver Jose Maria Lopez, who gave his top five tips on how best to experience Argentina’s capital city — from watching the city’s football team to sampling the local cuisine.

Lopez, known also by his nickname “Pechito,” finished 10th in front of his home crowd. The three-time World Touring Car Champion is also set to compete in the World Endurance Championship alongside his Formula E commitments.

Three races into the competition, Buemi holds a commanding 29-point lead over the rest of the championship having won every race.
