In a week the Formula E 2023 series will be over, with proceedings wrapping up with the two-day London ePrix this weekend on Saturday, July 29 and Sunday, July 30. After that, there will be no more league races this year.

Next race

Date: July 29, 30
Name: London ePrix
Location: ExCeL London

With a wide swathe of racers grabbing gold in various Formula E events, the London ePrix will be the last chance for any racers looking to give themselves a strong foot forward in the standings.

The Formula E 2023 races have seen a big range of winners, unlike F1 which has been dominated by one team, so the overall season victor could still be dictated by Rome.

As Formula 1's all-electric counterpart, Formula E puts electric cars at the front, making for a more eco-friendly and futuristic tournament. With technology coming on leaps and bounds, it's also a rapidly-improving tournament.

The Formula E 2023 season is much anticipated, as it marks the arrival of both McLaren and Maserati into the league for the first time, with the former replacing Mercedes. Plus, some big rule changes (detailed below) could lead to quite a different sport.

If you're interested in watching Formula E, this guide will help you, both for the upcoming ePrix and for the tournament as a whole. If you're away from home a VPN is always an option to watch Formula E. We recommend ExpressVPN.

Formula E July 29 & 30: London ePrix

The final event of the Formula E year are here, and that’s with the two races of the London ePrix on the weekend of July 29 and 30. This two-race event takes place around east London’s ExCeL Centre.

This street circuit has a length of 2.141 km, with racers completing 38 laps of the track in total. With 22 turns, it’s quite an involving course.

Since the London ePrix moved to the ExCeL Centre Course in 2021 Jake Dennis has won two of the four races, so he’s on track to gain gold again.

How to watch Formula E in the US

In the US, the main Formula E broadcaster is CBS.

Some of the races air live on CBS' main channel for anyone with a basic cable setup to watch, but most of them are on CBS Sports Network, a cable sports channel (some practices and qualifiers are also on CBS Sports HQ).

The Mexico City ePrix will be airing on the CBS Sports Network channel, starting at 11:30 pm ET or 8:30 pm PT.

If your cable package doesn't currently offer you CBS Sports Network, there are some online options that can help you. Your two best options are the live TV streaming services Hulu with live TV and FuboTV, which cost $69.99 and $74.99 per month respectively.

How to watch Formula E in the UK

In the UK, the primary Formula E race broadcaster is Channel 4, though it's only actually showing highlights on TV, on its main channel.

If you want to watch the race live, you have an easy option: the Channel 4 Sport YouTube channel will be live-streaming the races.

Another option, if you have it, is Eurosport, as the race coverage will be on Eurosport 2 and Eurosport player. This sports streaming service is now bundled with Discovery Plus, so if you're on the £6.99-per-month Sports plan you can watch this way.

How to watch Formula E online everywhere else

If you're a Formula E fan but broadcasts of the races aren't easily available where you live, a potential solution to this issue is with a Virtual Private Network (VPN). 

A VPN lets you change your IP address, allowing you can to watch events like Formula E broadcasts from other locations. Our favorite is ExpressVPN, which is the No. 1-rated VPN in the world right now according to our sister site, TechRadar.

Are there any changes for Formula E 2023?

There are a few things that set the Formula E 2023 season apart from the other ones.

The main upgrade is the introduction of the Gen3 Race Car Standard, which has a higher max speed, more powerful engine, more energy-efficient build (including regenerative braking to recharge the battery) and quicker charging speeds for shorter breaks in a race.

You can read more about the Gen3 Race Car from Formula E's website here.

Another major change is that the format of each race is shifting from time-based to laps-based.

Quite a few of the locations have changed with São Paulo, Hyderabad and Cape Town joining the lineup but Seoul, Brooklyn and Marrakesh leaving.
