After a lengthy search, Formula E has finally come to the decision that Misano will be Rome’s replacement and host
The Circuit Marco Simoncelli in Italy will host Formula E’s double-header on April 13/14, replacing Rome due to safety concerns from last season’s crash. Sam Bird’s car crashed at Turn 6 during the Rome double-header, causing a multi-car smash, but fortunately, no one was injured. The drivers believe that the safety concerns were not properly addressed. Formula E considered reprofiling Turn 6 in Rome but found it to be impractical and disruptive. Misano, located on the Adriatic coast and known for hosting MotoGP, has been chosen as the replacement venue for this year’s Italian E-Prix. The series is also considering other locations for future seasons. Additionally, Portland is expected to become a double-header, pending approval from the FIA World Motor Sport Council, making season 10 the largest in Formula E history with 17 races.
