Formula E’s 2021 season will commence with two races at the Diriyah street circuit – one during the day and another at night.
After the postponement of the Santiago E-Prix in January because of the new Covid-19 strains in the UK and South Africa there was doubt about when Season 7 would begin.
That has put to bed as Formula E confirmed today that the season would commence on February 26 with round 1 and round 2 the day after.
Diriyah is to be the first ever Formula E night race with the race starting at 17:00 GMT.
The next set of races are to be confirmed in early 2021.
