Formula E set September deadline for completion of season six

Formula E set September deadline for completion of season six

Formula E are prepared to call time on season six of the championship if no further races can be held before October.

Racing almost exclusively on city street circuits, Formula E will almost certainly find it more difficult to return to racing in 2020 and chairman Alejandro Agag has set a deadline for a decision over season six.

“If we cannot race in August and September, I don't think we will race beyond that," Agag told Motorsport.com.

“We will clearly sacrifice the season to start racing [the 2020-21 season] in December.

“Even with all the question marks and all the uncertainty, I think it’s very unlikely that we will not manage to do one more race.

“That would be exceptional - we live in exceptional times, but that would be exceptional on the exceptional.

“I think we will achieve maybe another two to four races, that's likely two double headers and maybe a little bit more. If we do that we're fine.

“But like I say, beyond September we won't race. We will then go to start season seven.”

It is understood that the championship is considering staging the UK race behind closed doors at either Brand Hatch, Donington or Silverstone - the original London ePrix venue currently unavailable after the ExCeL London was converted into a Nightingale hospital.
