Later and condensed: 2015-16 calendar

Current E Moscow 2015 Formula E Alejandro Agag announces Kazakhstan is a possiblity

The full calendar for the second Formula E season will be revealed within the next 10 days and is likely to be more condensed than this year’s, Formula E boss Alejandro Agag told Autosport.

Speaking after the Moscow race, Agag announced that the 2015-16 season opener in Beijing would take place a month later than this year, on 17 October, with further announcements on other venues due soon. Long Beach and Punta del Este are likely to be dropped from the second season, with Mexico City and Paris all-but-confirmed.

Agag commented: “We want to kind of compress the calendar, so we will start in October. And we want to give a little bit more time to the manufacturers who are tweaking their motors.”

“Obviously for a double-header you need the appetite of the public, so you need to fill the place for two days. London, definitely, we are seeing that we are selling a lot of tickets, so I think the experience is showing that it might makes sense to have one or two more double-headers.”
