Finally, Formula E will see its calendar cut to 10 rounds. Moscow ePrix, which was to take place in 4th june, dropped off after intense negotiations with municipality authorities from Russia capital city. “Unforeseen circumstances related to road closures” led the decision to be taken after no alternative was possible.
