A Simple Guide to FIA Formula E and Formula E Race Cars

Curtains closed for the first-ever Formula E season last weekend in London, after nine months of racing and silent action on racetracks in cities like London, Monaco, Miami, Berlin and Beijing.

Although far less spectacular and profitable than its giant counterpart called Formula 1, Formula E showed enough potential to create premises for a second season.

Most likely, rules and regulations will stay the same, but structural changes will show up, therefore, we thought we should look back on this ice-breaking season and gather all you need to know in the following guide for what we believe to be a freshly written file in the history of motorsport. So let's take it one subchapter at a time.

The competition

Formula E is a new FIA single-seater championship and the world's first fully-electric racing series. A total of 10 teams, each with two drivers, race on temporary city-centre circuits. At the same time, Formula E wants to serve as a framework for R&D around the electric vehicle.

Another unique aspect of the competition is that social media plays a role in Formula E, as fans are allowed to vote their favourite driver, which results in him getting an extra speed boost during the race, but not for longer than 5 seconds.

However, from season two, Formula E will operate as an 'open championship', allowing teams and manufacturers the opportunity to showcase their own electrical energy innovations. In other words, teams will focus their efforts on improving and developing powertrains and battery technology, with the aim of this filtering into the everyday electric vehicle market.
