LONDON, England - The Malaysian round of the new electric Formula E series has been postponed because the country's prime minister is unable to attend.

The race in Putrajaya was to have been held on October 18, Round 2 of the championship. It has been moved to November 22.

Formula E said: "The decision, which has been confirmed by the International Automobile Federation and the local motorsport federation, came at the request of the office of the prime minister of Malaysia."


Formula E chief executive Alejandro Agag said Najib Razak had been "fundamental" to Malaysia hosting a round of the championship and the series had agreed to the postponement.

Razak has been heavily involved in the aftermath of the downing of a Malaysian airliner over Ukraine. He helped to  broker a deal with separatist leaders to secure the return of victims' remains and the plane's black boxes.

The new 10-race, 10-team series is due to start in Beijing on September 13. Among the teams are those backed by Hollywood actor Leonardo di Caprio and Virgin boss Richard Branson.
