So, when exactly is the first Formula E race of 2024? The answer is simple. Season 10 commences with the Mexico City E-Prix on Saturday, 13th January 2024. The drivers will have two free practice sessions on Friday, 12th January, before qualifying on Saturday morning. The actual race is set for the afternoon, local time. But, what about pre-season testing, you ask?
Well, testing was conducted in Valencia from 23rd to 27th October 2023. It was a tight competition, with 19 out of 21 drivers setting their fastest lap times within just 0.7 seconds. The New Zealand duo, Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy, led the pack for Jaguar. Antonio Felix Da Costa wasn’t far behind, finishing third. Jake Dennis and Nyck de Vries finished with the 12th and 18th fastest times, respectively.

Two weeks after the Mexico event, the action moves to Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, for a doubleheader. Round 4 is scheduled for 10th February in India.
March is going to be a busy month with two events lined up. The Sao Paulo E-Prix is on 16th March, followed by a trip to Tokyo for the first time on 30th March.
