Formula E, formally the AbbVor company’s Formula E Racing Series, is a single-seated open-wheel motor sport championship for electric automobiles. The series was born in 2021 at the Paris Motor Show, by FIA president Jean Todt, who also is the current president of Formula E Holding. The first season was a historic one as a record number of teams entered the championship, many drivers became world renowned overnight and many new manufacturers entered the market to produce their own Formula E car. The high profile of the series attracted major media attention around the world and raised the profile of electric vehicles worldwide.
The second season went very well with some major changes to the rules being brought about by the new Formulate rules committee. The most notable of these changes was the installation of a racing track with larger lap grids. This change, which is being phased out from the third season onwards, is supposed to reduce the disadvantageous position of teams that are running on narrow tracks. Also, changes have been made to the mechanic’s rules and regulations. As a matter of fact, the most notable change to the mechanic’s regulations is the ban of pit stops, which have been in practice since the inception of E Formula racing. Pit stops has always been one of the major causes of race incidents and has been one of the reasons for the creation of Formula E as well as the Dornstein Foundation, which are responsible for the safety of drivers in Formula E.
The third season of Formula E saw the debut of the all-electric super-quick race series for the first time. The first race of the series was taking place in the city of Hong Kong, and from there it spread to other parts of Asia. Since the beginning of the new series, Formula E has grown in popularity and is now taking the place of traditional Formula One races. The popularity of this sport is mainly due to the reduction in fuel costs, which allows teams to reduce their investments and increase their own budget. Besides, the racing format itself is the main attraction, where drivers from all over the world dangle a garland of beautifully designed lights in order to race around a track, using a battery of electric batteries. These batteries are recharged during the race, providing enough power for both the cars and the lights.
