C​razy Formula E end of season planned with 6 races in 9 days

A​nd they're all taking place at the abandoned Berlin Tempelhof airport

T​he FIA and Formula E have come together to form a resolution for the 2019/20 championship, with the aim being to get as many races done and dusted in the shortest time possible.

T​aking place at Berlin's abandoned Tempelhof airport, the Formula E season will be rounded out with six races over nine days, starting from 5th August.

T​he proposed dates are as August 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th, 12th and 13th, with the large expanse of Tarmac at the Tempelhof facility having the ability to alter the track layout for each race.

T​hese quick fire races are being seen as the cleanest, safest and fairest way to wrap up the season, with the championship currently being led by Antonio Felix Da Costa (Drivers) and his team, DS TeCheetah (Teams).

T​he Berlin location has obviously been picked for its flexibility, as well as the vast square footage of the place to make social distancing as easy as possible in these tricky times.

I​t's a shame that we won't get to see such races as the proposed London finale, where Formula E was returning to stage the first race to feature indoor and outdoor sections of track.

T​he format in Berlin will take the shape of three double-headers (a double race weekend is nothing new for Formula E), leaving a couple of days for the teams to recuperate before kicking off the next back-to-back race combination.

The races will be broadcast as per usual, but there will be no spectators or worldwide media present, with a fully COVID-conscious closed door policy being implemented.

W​ho do you think will prevail in this machine gun calendar of racing to come in August? Cast your vote in the poll below!
