Open Talent Call: Presenters

The ABB FIA Formula E Championship is the world’s first fully electric racing series with a calendar of 14 races per year in 12 iconic global cities and we're looking for a new broadcast star to become part of our presenting team.

Founded to counteract climate change by accelerating the development and adoption of electric vehicles, Formula E has always had a purpose bigger than the sport itself. Our commitment to create better futures through racing includes a promise to nurture a culture of inclusivity. 

As such, Formula E is searching for new, diverse young voices to join us in Season 7. We tasked all 18-24 year olds with sending us a comprehensive competition submission and we were inundated with entries of a very high standard from budding, #PositivelyCharged presenters, pitlane reporters and sports commentators ahead of the early-September deadline.

Judging the competition will be Maya Jama, Daniel Abt and Amazin LeThi. Each will bring their own distinct personality and experience to the mix, and they will be tasked with narrowing those 15 shortlisted entrants selected from the Open Talent Call down to four finalists who will then be invited to attend Formula E pre-season testing to take on a series of on-screen challenges.

The four finalists will then be assigned experienced mentors and receive professional media training. One lucky winner will earn themselves a presenting contract to host Formula E alongside our existing on-air and online presenter line-up at the opening race of Season 7 scheduled to take place in Santiago, Chile on 16 January 2021.  

Please refer to the terms and conditions for full details on competition format and timelines.
