EVENT GUIDE: Welcome to the 2020 CBMM Niobium Mexico City E-Prix

We're back in Mexico City for the fourth time as the ABB FIA Formula E Championship rumbles on for the fourth round in Mexico's capital on February 15. Here's all you need to know about everything taking place on race day. 

EVENT GUIDE,  February 15


8:00am - Allianz E-Village Opens

The gates to the Allianz E-Village - Formula E’s fan festival at the heart of the E-Prix - open at 08:00am. Home to the drivers' autograph session, food stalls, interactive displays, activities for fans of all ages, and the chance to drive the track on our simulators in the Gaming Arena.

10:00am - Formula E Practice 

Here's your chance to see all 24 cars and drivers head out on track. With only two practice sessions ahead of Qualifying, this is the drivers last chance to get to grips with the track. Again, despite the timed element to the session, the timings don't count towards the final race result.

11:45pm - Formula E Qualifying and Super Pole, Track 

Qualifying determines the starting grid for the race, with the fastest driver lining-up in first place. The session lasts one hour and sees drivers divided into groups, decided by their championship standing - with the top challengers heading out first, in the most difficult conditions. Each driver has six minutes to set their best time, with the top-six drivers proceeding to the Super Pole shoot-out.
