July 10, 2024

Formula E has announced that the Hankook London E-Prix, the final two rounds of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, will be broadcast on free-to-air TV channel Quest in the UK and Ireland.

Viewers will be able to watch the Season 10 victor of the all-electric motorsport series be crowned World Champion onQuest via Freeview (channel 12), Freesat (167), Virgin (137) and Sky (144). Both Rounds 15 and 16 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will be live on Quest on July 20th and 21st. Quest and TNT Sports – Formula E’s host broadcaster in the UK – are part of Warner Bros Discovery.

After 14 races across 10 cities, it all comes down to this: a double-header weekend showdown. With just two races left of the season, only 12 points separate Jaguar TCS Racing’s Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy, and TAG Heuer Porsche’s Pascal Wehrlein at the top of the standings, with seven drivers mathematically in with a chance of claiming the championship trophy. Each of the World Championship hopefuls will be looking to assert their dominance and take the Season 10 title, securing their place in Formula E history.

As well as the Drivers’ title, there’s also the Teams’ Championship and the inaugural Manufacturers’ Trophy up for grabs. Jaguar TCS Racing currently lead the Team’s championship with 322 points, with TAG Heuer Porsche just 33 points adrift. These two teams are also playing a significant part in the chase for the first-ever Manufacturers’ title, which is being led by Porsche on 407 points, closely followed by Jaguar on 388 points.
