[Mis à jour le 22/04/2021 à 18h05] The current health crisis has a significant impact on the calendars of all major motorsport championships, from Formula 1 to WRC Rally and MotoGP. This also and especially applies to Formula E, the series of electric single-seaters being primarily intended to survey the big city center to perform there.
For now, beyond the imperative of behind closed doors, some countries simply cannot organize their event. This is particularly the case of the France and its ePrix in Paris. Canceled in 2020, the French round was initially due to regain its place in April 2021. However, in view of the current restrictions synonymous with a lack of visibility in terms of organization, ePrix de Paris had to give up for the second year in a row, leaving its place to the permanent circuit of Valencia in Spain.
This season 7 is the first to be contested under the label of World Championship of the FIA. By the time she debuted, on February 26, his schedule was still very provisional. It reported a total of six meetings comprising eight races. Like last year, hostilities kicked off at Riyad, with two races on the program. But as a novelty, they were run at night, in spotlight, at 8 p.m. local time on February 26 and 27.
Then, the Formula E caravan operates a series on the soil of three European countries, on April 10 in Rome (Italy), April 24 at Valence (Spain) and May 8 in Monaco. It should be noted that in the Principality of Monaco, electric single-seaters will be venturing onto the main track for the first time, in a version very close to that used for F1. At the beginning of April, the number of races increased from eight to ten, a second event being added to the meetings in Rome (April 10-11) and Valencia (April 24-25).
It is especially on April 22 that the 2021 calendar has been profoundly modified. Exit the stopover in Marrakech (Morocco), May 22, and the double round scheduled in Santiago (Chile), June 5 and 6. To compensate for the withdrawal of these three races, the discipline has decided to add eight ! These are four double runs, in the towns of Puebla, New York, London and Berlin, until August 15. The last three cited are regulars in the championship, while Puebla in Mexico, seen in the past in the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC), will be named to replace Mexico City, whose circuit serves as a “vaccinodrome”. From then on, season 7 of Formula E goes suddenly from 10 to 15 races, making it the longest season in the history of the discipline. Note that a track homologation is required for Puebla and London.
