How to watch the Extreme E Ocean X Prix from anywhere

The inaugural season of Extreme E continues and this weekend teams and drivers will head to Senegal for the Ocean X Prix and we have all the details on how you can watch the race on TV or online.

Extreme E is the brainchild of Formula E founder Alejandro Agag and former driver Gil de Ferran who first came up with the idea of racing electric buggies in some of the world's most remote locations back in 2018.

The 2021 Extreme E season will see nine teams made up of two drivers from the UK, Germany, Spain and the U.S. participate in a series of races all over the world. However, unlike with other motorsports leagues, Extreme E's schedule is quite spread out with just one race each in April, May, August, October, and December.

The first Extreme E race, the Desert X Prix, was held in Saudi Arabia back in April and Nico Rosberg's Rosberg X Racing came in first followed by Andretti United Extreme E from the U.S. in second and the UK's Team X44 (owned by F1 champion Lewis Hamilton) in third.

This weekend's race, the Ocean X Prix, will be held on the shores of Lac Rose outside of Senegal's capital Dakar. Drivers will once again be racing on mostly sandy terrain as they make their way around the existing tracks surrounding a lake. There will be a slight change to the race format used in Saudi Arabia as the final will be a four-car battle with two teams from each of the two semi-finals participating in the Ocean X Prix Final.

Whether you've been following Extreme E since it was first announced in 2019 or just want to see how well the electric vehicles in the series perform off-road, we'll show you exactly how to watch the 2021 Ocean X Prix from anywhere in the world.

Extreme E Ocean X Prix: When and where?

Extreme E's Ocean X Prix will be held at Lac Rose, Dakar, Senegal from May 29-30. Qualifying Round 1 will be held at 7:30am ET / 4:30am PT on Saturday followed by Qualifying Round 2 at 12pm ET / 9am PT.

The Semi-Finals will then be held on Sunday at 6am ET / 3am PT followed by the Ocean X Prix Final at 10am ET / 7am PT.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead. One positive for Root coming into the game is that they'll be playing in front of a near capacity crowd at Egbaston, with the overwhelming majority of the expected 18,000 spectators set to be cheering on the home side. The tourists have been delivered a huge blow coming intot his final match, with s

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases. Jump to: iPad widgets and app drawer Live Text Apple Maps AR navigation iOS notifications New Siri capabilities Apple Photos Bonus: What Google needs to steal iPad widgets and app drawer iPad OS 15 introduced two big new updates for the iPad home screen today: widgets and the App Library.

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.
