Following a frantic Santiago E-Prix, the Formula E championship remains in the Americas for the Mexico City E-Prix!
As with Santiago, the E-Prix airs live on 5Spike and Eurosport 2. There is live boxing action on Channel 5 at the same time, so you can understand why Formula E takes the secondary spot for Channel 5 on this occasion. To Channel 5’s credit, highlights of the race are airing on Sunday morning.
For the first time ever in the UK, viewers have a choice of broadcaster for qualifying, with Eurosport also covering the session live.
Elsewhere, the Supercars fire up down under, starting their season off in Adelaide. For UK viewers, the action airs live on Motorsport.tv. And, as widely mentioned, Formula 1 testing starts off this week, for which the schedule can be found here.

I really hope FE can gain huge momentum in the U.K. but I just think it’s going to be so hard. I honestly see a swift decline and death of motorsport as a mainstream sport. I honestly think it could happen even if it doesn’t look like it right now.
I think the only reason F1 got better ratings last year was because it was so horrendously mismanaged before.
I just think motorsport in general doesn’t get it. Most of the FE drivers are total petrol heads who don’t practice what they preach in FE. Quite the opposite in fact. I’ve seen André Lotterer’s Instagram stories. I like the guy but he seriously doesn’t get it.
And JEV. Does a film about saving Cheetah’s from climate change and then drives a 911 fast on Instagram. There’s a total disconnect between what people say and what they do. Very few people truly understand the situation we’re in.
But when we do as a society, motorsport will not be in a good position at all. And even if FE is doing the right thing, I just don’t know if people will care about motorsport enough by then to even make that viable. I hope it is but you never know.
Have FreeSports stopped showing the Supercars?
Eurosport are showing the New Zealand Toyota series at random times of night and day. Well worth seeking out on the guide…
