FE 2017/18 calendar revealed as Rome, Santiago and Sao Paulo added

The FIA has released the calendar for the 2017/18 Formula E season, which will feature Rome, Santiago and Sao Paulo as new host venues

FE 2017/18 calendar revealed as Rome, Santiago and Sao Paulo added

As revealed by Autosport last month the three cities will join Hong Kong, Mexico City, Paris, New York and Montreal on the 11-date, 14-round schedule.

Santaigo's confirmation as a host city for season four means Chile will stage its first FIA-sanctioned street race on February 3.

That visit will be the first of a brace of South American races, split by the third Mexico City ePrix - which will take place in early March - and a first visit to Brazil, with the series set to visit Sao Paulo on March 17 subject to confirmation.

Marrakech remains on the schedule for a second season and will host the second round of the season, the first of 2018.

Hong Kong is once again the season-opening venue, but will this time host a double-header on the December 2-3 weekend.

A later start to the season has been implemented both to avoid the long gaps between races that have featured in season three and the volatile cyclone season in and around Hong Kong.

The European leg of the calendar will start off with the inaugural Rome ePrix on April 14 before moving onto Paris two weeks later.

Two further yet-to-be decided races also feature on the schedule. One of those is scheduled in Germany and is provisionally slated for May 19, while a round on June 9 remains to be announced.

The season will then again conclude with double-headers in New York (subject to confirmation) and Montreal.

How motorsport's most prominent power couple found joint success

The Wolffs have carved their own paths in motorsport, leading their respective teams to success in Formula 1 and Formula E. But the two came together last month as their drivers finished first and second in the FE drivers' championship - a feat they are hugely proud of.

The top 10 Formula E drivers of 2020-21

OPINION: The 2021 Formula E campaign was one without a narrative for much of the season, with no single car or driver able to break away from the pack. That makes choosing a top 10 especially difficult, particularly as the qualifying format meant some worthy performers were unable to enjoy their day in the sun

How Mercedes and De Vries achieved Formula E glory the hard way

When Nyck de Vries dominated the first race of what would be the most controversial and unpredictable Formula E season to date, it looked as though Mercedes was in for a cakewalk. But as the campaign wore on, the path to a title double became increasingly rocky. Neither driver or team would be assured of the crown until the closing stages of the very final race on a weekend of struggle in Berlin

OPINION: The departure of Audi from Formula E meant its long-time driver Lucas di Grassi would need to find a new berth to stay on the grid. His deal at Venturi Racing will ensure the championship's first-ever race winner will remain competitive into the final year of the current Gen2 ruleset - although it may not be a long-term fit

Mercedes' planned withdrawal from Formula E at the end of the 2022 season will contribute to the big hole left by fellow automotive manufacturers Audi and BMW on their departures.

It hasn't been properly reflected by the points table, but Antonio Felix da Costa has been nigh-on flawless in his Formula E title defence in 2021. Returning to the scene of his Berlin dominance in 2020, he has the chance to set the record straight and claim a remarkable against-the-odds second title
