Formula E still waiting on Battersea decision

The future of London's Formula E round at Battersea Park remains up in the air after the deadline on an opt-out clause between the series and the Wandsworth Council was pushed back.

Motorsport.com reported that the opt-out clause was supposed to lapse on November 2, but will now run until a council meeting is held next month.

Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag is confident, however, that the race will remain at the iconic venue next year.

"The deadline has now been extended to December when there is a council meeting," he confirmed to Motorsport.com.

"In principle, we have a contract with Battersea. They have an exit clause now that they can exercise, but we're quite confident that they won't.

"We are not exercising that clause on our side, and we hope they don't do it either.

"They have the right to do it if they want; at the moment, as things stand, we have a contract, we're racing there."
