Other: About the ABB FIA Formula E Championship:

The ABB FIA Formula E Championship is the closest, most intense and progressive category in

motorsport, bringing electrifying racing to the streets against the backdrop of landmarks, skyscrapers and skylines in some of the world’s most famous and recognisable cities - such as Hong Kong, Rome,

Paris and New York.

Formula E enters a new and exciting era in season five with the competitive debut of the next

generation car. The striking new model boasts a distinctive futuristic design and demonstrates a clear

step-up in performance with almost double the energy storage capacity - allowing teams and drivers

to complete a full race distance at higher speeds without needing to swap cars. The Gen2 car is a

testament to the ongoing advancements in battery and electric vehicle technology in the space of only

four years.

The fifth edition of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship will see 11 teams and 22 drivers tackle a

variety of challenging circuits in 12 cities - across five continents - in a bid to be crowned champion.

Formula E will be making its debut in the Middle East on December 15 for the season-opener in Ad

Diriyah, with the championship once again coming to a close in New York City over the course of two

days on July 13 & 14.
