The inaugural season sparked into life in September 2014 around the grounds of the Olympic Park in Beijing. Now entering its fifth year, the 2018/2019 season will see an all-new car with 11 teams and 22 drivers compete in cities spanning five continents in the fight to be crowned Formula E champion.

Formula E is also a competitive platform to test and develop road-relevant technologies, acting as a catalyst for sustainable mobility solutions - helping refine the design and functionality of electric vehicle components and improving the driving experience for everyday road car users all over the world.

all in a day

One of the great things about Formula E is that everything takes place in one day; practice, qualifying and the race. As well as the on-track action, drivers also compete in a number of fan related activities. From autograph sessions to the coveted E-Race, in which drivers who have qualified race fans on a virtual race, their day is full.

CITY RACING

Formula E brings racing to the heart of the city centre, with tracks that weave through world-famous streets, fans just can’t get any closer to the action. From the streets of Monaco to downtown Santiago. Formula E takes racing to the people.

Social

Formula E is the only sport in the world that lets fans play an active role in influencing the outcome of the race. FANBOOST gives fans the opportunity to vote for their favourite driver and aware them an extra boost of power during the race. The three drivers with the most FANBOOST votes are awarded a significant burst of power. For season five this will see a change to the format, where ATTACK MODE will be introduced. This mode will see the winning drivers have to divert from the racing line, at a designated area of the track, to receive the power boost.
