A Look at Formula E
Formula E, formally the ABB Formula E Championship, is an electrical racing series for electric motor vehicles. The first series was launched in 2021 at the Monte Carlo Rallycross venue. Since its inception, Formulae has gained popularity not only in Europe but around the world too.
The main characteristics of a Formulate race car are its battery, which is the power source, its suspension system, its gearbox and its aerodynamics. The battery of the Formulae vehicle is lightweight and contains highly advanced materials, and the batteries are recharged numerous times during the race. In addition, the batteries of these races are usually placed under the body of the car of the racer, so as to prevent the battery from suffering damage due to high-pressure that comes from the tires during cornering. The battery of the Formulae car must be able to withstand the force of more than 400 horsepower, or an average speed of nearly 47 kilometers per hour. There are two drivers per team in this championship; the driver in the front is the driver of the car with the most power, while the one in the back holds the battery that supplies the power.
During a race, there are pit stops where the team drivers change their car engine and other accessories, such as fuel and brake fluid. A Formulae race begins with a qualifying race in which only the drivers of a certain car must qualify; based on their performance during the qualifying race, the teams will then be given a time limit of ten minutes during which they need to prevent the opponents from scoring more points than them. The race itself is designed to last only for five minutes, at which point the competitors can swap cars. As mentioned previously, there are no restrictions on the number of cars that can be used in a Formulate race.
