Four cities in four different countries were announced yesterday to fill up the calendar for Season 7 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship: Puebla (Mexico), New York City (United States), London (United Kingdom) and Berlin (Germany).
This would be the longest Formula E season to date with fifteen races on the calendar and a total of seven double-header races.
Alberto Longo, Chief Championship Officer said: “Four double-header events in Puebla, New York City, London, and Berlin are going to set the scene perfectly to crown Formula E’s first official FIA World Champion”.
Round eight and nine of the championship will be hosted by Mexico’s city of Puebla on 19/20 June 2021, as the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in Mexico City is currently a temporary field hospital in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
New York City is back on the race roster again, letting the electric Gen2 cars loose in Red Hook, Brooklyn like it did two years ago, on 10/11 July 2021.
London, United Kingdom, is next, after the season six finale had to be scrapped due to the COVID-19 pandemic, on 24/25 July. The race will be held in the ExCeL Exhibition centre.
Berlin will host the last double-header of the season, on 14/15 August, on the Templehof track which hosted six races in nine days last year.
This is Formula E’s first year as a World Championship and the packed schedule of practice, qualifying and race on the same day could be tough on the teams.
