Formula E is poised to begin the 2017/18 season as late as December, with Hong Kong the desired destination.

For the 2016/17 campaign Formula E set off in early October at Hong Kong, with the revelation that a typhoon was a prospect that could have featured during that weekend. 

"We won't be racing in Hong Kong in October again," said CEO Alejandro Agag,

"We want Hong Kong [as the opening round], we're looking at delaying it until late November or even the first weekend of December."

"And then we'll pack the calendar, with much more racing in January and February. Formula One and the other championships are going up to November, so December may fit well."
