Hong Kong has been taken off the finalised 2019-2020 Formula E race calendar released by the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council.

After the FIA met in Cologne today, the full Formula E campaign has been confirmed for next season with the December round disappearing and the vacant round on 21st March filled by Sanya. The round will directly clash with the Sebring round on the 2019-2020 World Endurance Championship calendar.

The Hong Kong round has been replaced by Marrakech having been initially left off the 2019-2020 race calendar.

The new Formula E calendar also sees a series of tweaks to the schedule with Jakarta’s first-ever Formula E race set for 6th June 2020 following the Seoul round on 3rd May 2020.

The Berlin round will now taking place on 21st June with New York’s race moving to 11th July.

It sees the New York round clash with the Norising DTM round next year, causing a direct clash for Robin Frijns and Nico Muller.

"The 2019/20 Formula E championship looks like it will be the closest and most competitive season we’ve ever had in our short history - in terms of manufacturers competing, thanks to Mercedes-Benz and Porsche joining the line-up, and with the amount of incredible capital cities set to showcase the most competitive line-up in motorsport," Alberto Longo, Co-Founder & Chief Championship Officer of Formula E, said.

"Let’s see if we can see an early pecking order at pre-season testing in only a couple of weeks. Season six has well and truly arrived.”
