Scheduling: The 2022 Seoul E-Prix

After extending his lead last time out in London, Mercedes driver Stoffel Vandoorne looks a shoe in to clinch his 1st Formula E championship, as the series heads to South Korea for the season 8 finale.

The double-header takes place in Seoul, the first time Formula E has been to South Korea. Vandoorne holds a 36-point lead heading into the weekend.

With 58 points on offer during the weekend, 4 drivers are mathematically still in the running: Vandoorne, Jaguar’s Mitch Evans, Venturi’s Edoardo Mortara, and DS Techeetah’s Jean-Eric Vergne, although at this stage it is Vandoorne’s to lose.

Live coverage of both races air across Channel 4 and Eurosport, with coverage also available via their digital platforms. The race weekend concludes Channel 4’s first full season covering the championship, the broadcaster committed to Formula E for multiple seasons.

Unlike with when Channel 4 covered F1 live, there are no afternoon replays, so fans who miss the 08:00 alarm will need to record the action or catch-up on YouTube.

As usual, Vernon Kay presents Channel 4’s coverage alongside Nicki Shields, with Jack Nicholls and Dario Franchitti providing commentary for the season finale.
