Coming off the December season-opening Rounds 1 and 2 from Saudi Arabia, FOX Sports sets its 2020 television schedule for the fully electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship, highlighted by a total of 11 live events*, and continuing this weekend with Round 3 from Santiago, Chile on FS2.

Host Vernon Kay is joined by play-by-play announcer Jack Nicholls, four-time IndyCar champion and three-time Indy 500 winner Dario Franchitti and reporter Nicki Shields.

Former F1 mechanic and author Steve Matchett hosts FOX Sports’ Formula E coverage throughout the season, adding his unique brand of technical insight.
