Formula E Season 11 Calendar

The upcoming season has dropped the India round after this year’s fiasco. The Hyderabad e-Prix was scheduled to take place in February this year but was cancelled at the last moment after discrepancies with the state government. Rumours were rife that Formula E was looking to partner with different organisers to organise a race in India in a different city. Interestingly, Rome e-Prix has also been dropped from the calendar for the next season, a first since the championship began in 2016/17.
