The Formula E circuit is back for its third race of the 2022 season after back-to-back races in Saudi Arabia. The nine-year old racing circuit continues its evolution and will run the Mexico City E-Prix this weekend. Practice, qualifying, and the race itself will all take place on Saturday, February 12 at Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in Mexico City.
Race day gets started at 9 a.m. ET with practice runs. The first free practice is from 9-9:30 and the second is from 10:50-11:20. That’s followed by qualifying from 12:40 to 1:55 p.m. The race gets underway at 5 p.m. and runs for 45 minutes plus one lap.
Qualifying is notable with a four-round playoff to determine the starting grid. The 22 drivers are divided into two groups of 11. All 22 drivers run a lap to get the fastest time and the top four from each group progress into the quarterfinals. They’re paired up based on that qualifying speed and compete head-to-head to get the fastest time until the the pole is earned.
Formula E is available across a variety of broadcasting and streaming options. CBS Sports HQ and Formula E’s YouTube page will stream the full day’s events. CBS Sports Network will air the race itself on television. The Formula E website and app both offer streams of the two practice sessions.
A year ago, the E-Prix in Mexico took place in the town a Amozoc near Puebla. Lucas di Grassi and René Rast finished 1-2 for Audi in that race. The Mexico City E-Prix had raced the year prior, with Mitch Evans claiming the checkered flag in the Jaguar car.
