Season 9 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship begins on Saturday (14 January) with the 2023 Hankook Mexico City E-Prix where global TV viewers can see the competitive debut of the new GEN3 – the fastest, lightest, most powerful and efficient electric race car ever built.
Formula E’s network of more than 40 international broadcast partners will be presenting live and highlights coverage in 25 languages across a range of free-to-air, pay TV and digital platforms in almost 150 countries, reaching more global viewers than ever before.
Formula E will be producing a one-hour pre-show to be carried by most of the English language broadcast partners, while international broadcasters will have dedicated coverage of all sporting sessions.
For the first season of the GEN3 era, Formula E has expanded and diversified its roster of talent to include former champion Nelson Piquet Junior, former Andretti Formula E driver Oliver Askew and former racing driver Naomi Schiff, joining established stars Dario Franchitti and Karun Chandhok. The roster includes Formula E regulars Nicki Shields, Vernon Kay, Radzi Chinyanganya and commentator Jack Nicholls.
The opening race will see Jack Nicholls pair up with Oliver Askew and Karun Chandhok in commentary. Nicki and Vernon will provide updates on all the colour from the stands and news from the pitlane.
The live race will be covered using 32 track cameras and 28 other cameras, including driver’s eye; a new graphics look and a 198-camera best-in-class on-board camera and team radio system to enhance the viewing experience for viewers.
