"All team members remained at home in Shanghai over the extended holiday in response to the government’s advice facing the Coronavirus outbreak.

"All the staffs are well and healthy, currently preparing the next round of Mexico City E-Prix.

"In a responsible manner toward the championship and personnels involved in Formula E, Chinese driver Ma Qinghua arrived in Mexico City on the 2nd of February to ensure a 14-day quarantine period prior to the race.
