Formula E cost-consolidation and qualifying measures announced at FIA World Motorsport Council

Updates regarding cost-consolidation and qualifying format for the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship have been announced following the latest FIA World Motor Sport Council meeting (Friday October 9). Ahead of the debut of the first ABB FIA Formula E World Championship season, the FIA World Motor Sport Council has approved the next series of cost-consolidation measures with the long-term financial stability of championship participants in mind. Following measures already introduced earlier this year, production parts – not mandatory related to a single supplier – and spare parts will now be limited. To increase the excitement of the TV product and align with drivers only being allowed to complete one hot-lap during the qualifying group stage, the amount of time for each qualifying group will be reduced from six to four minutes.
