Formula E: Saudi Arabia, Diriyah ePrix – what time does it start and how can I watch it?

FORMULA E'S sixth season kicks off in Saudi Arabia.

Fans are treated to a double-header on the opening week of the new campaign with two races in Riyadh.

The Diriyah ePrix sees the most competitive grid in the championship's history with Mercedes and Porsche joining the fight.

Jean-Eric Vergne will be out to defend his crown after becoming the first two time world champion as he wrapped up back-to-back titles.

When are the two races?

The first race will be held on November 22nd, while race two is on the following day, on November 23rd.

What's unique about Formula E, is racing and qualifying both take place on the same day.

Race one and race two both start at midday.

Qualifying in the first race is at 8am, while it starts five minutes earlier at 7.55am for race two.

How can I watch the action?

Eurosport 2, will show both qualifying sessions live.

While the race action can be caught on the BBC red button, BBC iPlayer and the BBC sport. website, as well as Eurosport 2.

Formula E have introduced a camera which is inside the drivers' helmets to show their point of view while racing.

Who stood out in pre-season testing?

Pre-season testing took place in Valencia - with Virgin topping the time sheets on two of the three days.

The Ricardo Tormo Circuit doesn't truly reflect the tight-street racing which is associated with FE, but it still a good indicator to show who will be competitive in the first race week.

Meanwhile Dragon's Max Guenther achieved the fastest lap time of the weekend - while also finishing in the top seven of each session.
