2019/20 2021/22

The 2020/21 Formula E Season, formally known as the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, is set to be the seventh edition of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, an all-electric racing series.[1] The seventh FE season will also be the first edition of the series to be classified as an FIA "World Championship", and feature the same mix of manufacturers, including Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and BMW, from the 2019/20 season.[2]

The season was also set to see an update for the series' base car, the Spark SRT05e, which would be primarily focused on aesthetic changes to the bodywork.[3] However, the implementation of the new "EVO" package was delayed as a result of the 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic, while a two year powertrain homologation was enforced to reduced costs in the wake of the Pandemic.[4]

Background

Calendar

The 2020/21 calendar was steadily assembled amid the 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic, which had seen the 2019/20 season take an enforced mid-season hiatus between March and July 2020.[5] The impact of that delay that the provisional calendar for 2020/21, released on 19 June 2020, would be heavily condensed, with all of its races staged between January and July 2021.[5] The calendar would also see significant changes in the order of the rounds, with Diriyah losing its spot as the opening round.[5]

Provisional Plans

The provisional calendar released on 19 June 2020 revealed that the 2020/21 season would start at the Parque O'Higgins Circuit in Santiago, Chile, on 17 January 2021, the first time that Chile had hosted an opening FIA World Championship race.[5] The series would then head to Mexico City and the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez on 13 February, before arriving in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, for a double header on 26 - 27 February.[5] The Rome E-Prix was then to be staged on the 10 April 2021, followed by a trip to Paris, France on 24 April 2021.[5]

The Monaco E-Prix returned to the calendar on 8 May 2021, with the series evaluating whether to use the full layout for the first time.[5] After that a lone TBC spot was listed on 5 June 2021, before the next confirmed round in Berlin, Germany was scheduled for 19 June.[5] The series would then head to the United States and New York City on 10 July 2021, before the ExCeL E-Prix Circuit in London, UK, would host the final two races of the season on 24 - 25 July 2021.[5]
