Formula E is back with a double-header in Chile to kick off its 2020-21 season. The unveiling of the new Spark Gen 2 EVO chassis has been pushed back by a year to save costs amid Covid, but having similar machinery could make this new season all the more competitive after six different teams and eight drivers recorded a victory last season.
For the first time ever, a double-header in Chile will begin the year as the Santiago ePrix will feature back-to-back races. With the removal of chicanes last year in an effort to improve the racing, it is guaranteed to produce some flashpoints.
Last season it was BMW i Andretti’s Maximilian Günther who took victory in Chile, becoming, at 23 years old, the youngest Formula E race winner in the series’ six-year history in the process.
