Sanya and Mexico City postponed, Santiago becomes double header

Formula E has announced a revised 2020-21 calendar as the Sanya and Mexico events are postponed while the season opening Santiago E-Prix will become a double header.

Mexico City was originally set to be the second round of Season 7, with a visit to Sanya for round five.

Organisers have tried to keep as close as possible to the original provisional calendar, released earlier this year.

Other than the two postponed events, the only change is to the opening round of the season in Santiago. The event will now be a double header, held behind closed doors, on January 16th and 17th.

“We are focusing on racing in as many of our international host cities as possible, sticking as closely to our planned and previously announced calendar as we can,” the series said in a statement.

“In all decision-making we prioritise the health and safety of our staff and the entire Formula E community of teams, manufacturers, partners, drivers and fans, as well as the citizens and residents of the cities in which we race.

“Formula E will continue to work with local authorities to monitor the situation and is in constant communication with its community of teams, manufacturers, partners, broadcasters, and drivers.

“The next set of races will be confirmed in early 2021. All calendar updates are subject to approval of the FIA World Motor Sport Council.”
