Here's the full weekend time schedule for the Diriyah E-Prix, which will take place from 27-29 January, as the new Formula E season gets underway in Saudi Arabia.

Formula E is set to return this week for its eighth season, with the Diriyah E-Prix kicking off proceedings.

10 teams and 22 drivers will be hitting the track in Saudi Arabia in what looks to be a competitive campaign ahead. In 2021, Nyck de Vries was crowned World Champion in the Mercedes-EQ car, but just 10 points covered the top five finishers in the title battle.

De Vries took his debut Formula E win in Diriyah last season, so will be hoping for similar success as he begins his championship defence.

The weekend will begin with an opening practice session on Thursday, followed by a second on Friday before qualifying and the first race take place.

A similar format is in place on Saturday, with free practice leading up to qualifying and the second race of the weekend.

Viewers in the United Kingdom will now be able to watch all the Formula E action on Channel 4.
