0

Formula E has been granted world championship status by the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). From the start of the 2020/21 season, the all-electric series will be recognized as the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

The FIA, the governing and sanctioning body for world motorsport, and sitting members of the FIA World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) voted and agreed to move forward with certifying Formula E as an FIA world championship.

Series founder and chairman of Formula E Alejandro Agag signed the agreement, along with FIA president Jean Todt, at FIA headquarters at Place de la Concorde in Paris, France.

The decision comes off the back of Formula E’s most successful season to date and the arrival of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche to the series.
