Formula E

5 posts in this topic

Porsche and Mercedes to join Formula E in 2019.

Now I've given Formala E a fair chance but sadly just can't get into it. I know it's the future and really hope with the big guns being involved they can make it better.

I've only caught a few bits of Formula E but I've quite enjoyed it.  I don't understand the rules and car swap stuff but the racing is quite good.

Car swap is quite simply because of the battery limitations and not being able to last a full race distance.

They should have to recharge them in the style of the old "splash & dash" :)

That'd make for a pretty boring hour or two for the spectators...

 

Actually, I think in the first incarnation they had replaceable battery packs, but realised it was quicker/easier/safer/more reliable to use two cars.
