Formula E has unveiled the final race calendar for the 2021 season. As the electric series confirmed on Thursday, it has to cancel its planned E-Prix in Morocco and Chile due to COVID travel restrictions.

The adjustments to the Formula E calendar had already been hinted at in recent weeks. For example, strict restrictions are currently making it difficult to enter Morocco, where the Marrakesh E-Prix was originally planned to be held on May 22. The Santiago E-Prix, which was initially scheduled to start the season and has since been postponed to June 5 and 6, also had to be canceled for this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead, Formula E is expecting a premiere in June. As a replacement for the Mexico City E-Prix, the electric series is moving its usual Central American round for the first time to Puebla, a city with a population of 1.5 million located around 100 kilometers southeast of Mexico City. The site of the racetrack in the Mexican capital, which has been used by Formula E since 2016, is currently being used as a temporary hospital for COVID patients and is therefore not available to the series.

The Puebla E-Prix is to be staged as a “double header” with two races on June 19 and 20. The races will directly follow the Monaco E-Prix in the calendar, which is scheduled to take place on May 8.

Also confirmed is the return of Formula E to the USA. The New York E-Prix is scheduled to start in Brooklyn on July 10/11. The electric series will then travel back to Europe to end its season with the London E-Prix on July 24 and 25 and the Berlin E-Prix on August 14 and 15. All the “new” dates are thus scheduled as “double headers”.
