The eight major plotlines to watch in Formula E 2021

The delayed 2020-21 Formula E season gets underway this week with a double-header in Saudi Arabia. The testing times were too close to call a favourite, but that's not the only area of interest to follow as the championship enters a crucial year

Even if the tantalisingly close 0.8-second gap that split the Formula E field in December's Valencia test cannot be relied upon as a true barometer of the form-book for the year ahead, the 2020-2021 season promises to be a stellar one.

With two major manufacturers eager to depart on a high, a new home for one of the two drivers to have contested every FE race since the beginning and highly-rated rookies aiming to hit the ground running, there are plenty of subplots to keep an eye on.
