2016/17 2018/19

The 2017/18 Formula E Season, officially known as the 2017/18 ABB FIA Formula E Championship, is the fourth and current season of the FIA's all electric, single-seater Championship.[1] The fourth edition of FE, which began with two races in Hong Kong on the 2 December, is to be the last to feature mid-ePrix car changes, and the last to use the Spark-Renault SRT_01E as a base chassis.

Lucas di Grassi would start the season as the defending Drivers' Champion, while Renault e.Dams arrived as the unbeaten Teams' Champions from 2016/17. Elsewhere Swiss tech firm ABB became the Series' first title sponsor after signing a multi-year sponsorship deal, though to be in the region of £15 million a season.[1]

The opening races of the season would both be held in Hong Kong, with Sam Bird and Felix Rosenqvist sharing the spoils for DS Virgin Racing and Mahindra Racing respectively.[2]

BackgroundEdit

CalendarEdit

The provisional calendar for the 2017/18 FIA Formula E Championship was released on the 19 June 2017, and included several changes from the previous three seasons.[3] The major change saw the season start very late compared to previous years, the first race penned in for early December, although the final round scheduled for late July remained unchanged.[3] The result would be a more compressed schedule for the fourth edition of the FIA Formula E Championship, which also featured some new host cities.[3]

A double header in Hong Kong would open the season in December 2017, before a break over Christmas to allow teams to head to North Africa.[3] After a single race, and a rookie test, in Marrakech the field would be heading over the Atlantic for a maiden visit to Santiago, Chile on the 3 February.[3] Mexico City would play host to FE once again a month later, before a two week break ahead of the series' first visit to São Paulo, Brazil.[3] This was later changed to a return to Punta del Este in Uruguay on the 17 March 2018, as the organisers in São Paulo requested that the debut of the city be pushed back a year.[4]

After making the late change to the Playa Brava Beach, FE would return to its homeland of Europe in April, with the first ever Rome E-Prix scheduled for the 14 April.[3] Paris was pencilled in two weeks later, before the annual visit to Germany, with Berlin once again chosen to host an E-Prix.[5] A historic visit to Zürich, Switzerland would follow on the 10 June 2018, with Formula E bringing circuit racing back to the Alps for the first time in 60 years.[5]

It was back over the Atlantic for the final quartet of races of the season, with the return of New York City as a host city with a double header on 7-8 July.[3] The finale would then come as a double header in Montreal once again, with the final race set to be staged on the 29 July 2018.[3] That was, until the Montreal Mayor pulled the plug on the finale in December 2017, stating that the previous races had cost the city too much money and an alternative venue could not be found.[6] The FIA and Formula E had no immediate replacement at hand, and would ultimately decide against a replacement after considering several options ranging from a race in Birmingham, UK, to a return to Donington Park.[7]

A three day pre-season test was scheduled for the entire ten team field in October, with the FIA opting to move the testing days from the series HQ, Donington Park.[14] Instead, the only collective test would be staged at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain, after pressure from the European based teams to move to a location more suited to street racing.[14]

RegulationsEdit

Various minor changes would be made to the rules and regulations for the 2017/18 season, ahead of the major shake-up scheduled for the 2018/19 season.

TechnicalEdit

For 2017/18 the FIA decided to increase the maximum power allowed to be used during the race to 180kw, the equivalent to 241 bhp.[16] This increase, up by 10kw (13 bhp), will allow the FIA to either increase the length of the average ePrix, or give teams and drivers the chance to race at an increased pace.[16]

Testing wise the FIA decided to increase the number of in-season, public, tests to two, while also allowing teams to complete upwards of six filming days.[16] Three of the six filming expeditions must be staged in city settings, designed to enhance the amount of marketing for the series by expanding public awareness.[16]

SportingEdit

The points system for finishing position is expected to remain as it has been since the inaugural 2014/15 Season, with points awarded from 1st to 10th using the FIA's standard points system.[17] Additional points are also awarded to the pole setter and the fastest lap setter at each ePrix, with three points earned for the former, and a single point for the latter.[17] It was later announced that the point for fastest lap would be awarded to a driver who finished in the top ten.[18]

In terms of race format there would be some minor variations, with the FIA deciding to remove one practice session from the schedule of a "double header" weekend.[16]

2017/18 FIA Formula E Championship Points Table
1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th
25 18 15 12 10 8 6 4 2 1
Pole Position Fastest Lap
3 1

Each driver will be allocated ten Michelin tyres at each race meeting (for both of their cars) which must last for the entire race meeting.[17]

QualifyingEdit

Qualifying for each race in the 2017/18 FE season will largely follow the same format as previous seasons, with a group phase followed by a shootout.[17] A minor change for the season came in how the groups were formed, now set to be based on Championship position rather than a random draw, although otherwise the system was unchanged.[19] Four groups of five drivers would be formed ahead of qualifying, with each group then getting six minutes on circuit to set a single full power lap.[17]

The top five overall would then progress to the Super Pole shootout, where they would go out, in order of slowest to fastest, to set a second full power lap, now on an empty circuit.[17] Their times from the shootout would then determine the top five on the grid, while the rest of the field was ordered according to their efforts in the Group stage.[17]

PitstopsEdit

Shortly before the 2018 Marrakech E-Prix the FIA announced that the minimum pitstop time in Formula E, used since the series' inaugural season, would be dropped with immediate effect.[20] The minimum pitstop time was introduced to ensure that drivers had enough time to do up their safety harness after swapping to their second car, although with three years of practice most of the teams had the routine down to the point where most drivers were sat around waiting to leave their pit box.[20] The change had been considered after the first season of FE, although the proposal was ultimately rejected due to concerns over safety.[20]

Some drivers, such as Sam Bird, questioned the move on safety grounds as the single-seater style harness could be left partially undone when a driver rejoined the circuit, meaning they would have to strap themselves in properly while on circuit.[20] Lucas di Grassi instead suggested that the series change to using GT style belts rather than the traditional single-seater harness, which were easier to do up with outside assistance and had been designed for quick driver changes.[20]

EntrantsEdit

The same ten teams, backed by the same nine manufacturers that competed in the 2016/17 will field entries in the 2017/18 FIA Formula E Championship. The only significant change would be at the ABT Schaeffler effort, with Audi taking over their entry, meaning the team was renamed as Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler for the fourth FE season.[21] ABT Sportsline would remain as the day-to-day operators of the team, while Schaeffler continued on as a technical partner.[21]
