Will Formula E Cause a Huge Revolution in Motor Racing?
Formula E, officially the AbbVor company’s Formula E Championship, is an electronic motor sport championship dedicated to electric cars. The series was launched in 2021 in Paris by FIA President Jean Todt, who is the former boss of Formula 1 racing. Since then, several countries around the world have expressed strong interest in hosting a future Formula E race. Although there is still no confirmed timetable for a series of such races, it seems that the concept is well under consideration. Formula E is yet to stage a race for a major car manufacturer in its infancy, but that may soon change.
Formula E has received a lot of support from every major manufacturer currently involved in motor racing, with the exception of Mercedes. Some believe that by backing Formula E it can help manufacturer manufacturers win over one another and create more crossover customers from other disciplines. That would be an excellent thing for drivers, as well as teams, because it means more opportunities for cash prize money and increased incentive to race. There is also speculation that Formula E could one day replace the traditional motor sports calendar as the premier motor sports event, and that could only mean good things for the fans and viewers.
If Formula E makes a hit, there could be huge benefits not only for Formula One, but for the whole of motor racing in general. As we all know, the popularity of Formula One is enormous, and the growing popularity of electric racing has helped make it one of the most popular sports events on the planet. The future of motor racing lies in technology, and the advancement of new materials and design will certainly have a great effect on future Formula One. It is clear that there is definitely a lot of money to be made if Formulae is successful, and that the teams are following a strategy designed to capitalize on its colossal potential. In the short term at least, it looks as though Formulae may well have a bright future ahead of it, and I personally would be very happy to watch it.
