AutosportFormule E

Brussels The name Formula E says it all: the motors are fully electric. Much more than a loud buzz produce these cars are not perfect so if you have a car wants to go without earplugs.

Eye-catcher this season in the Formula E is the newly launched Gen2 car: it is a stronger battery, allowing the engine to 335 hp could develop. Impressive for an electric car, but a lot less than the brutal violence of the F1 where the cars close to the 1,000 hp develop. That also results in a higher top speed: around 350 km per hour in the F1, “only” 280 km / h in the FE.

The man in the street

The big winner in the FE, incidentally, is the man in the street: where in F1 almost all the GP’s to be held on permanent circuits which are often remote, are all the races in the FE driven in the streets of cities around the world. There is temporarily a racetrack shape. This year include Paris, Berlin, Rome and New York at the turn.

In F1, each car is completely different, while in the Formula E, the cars are almost identical

What the FE is also so unique is the fan boost, where fans on the FE-site can vote on their favorite rider. The five riders with the most votes in may than during the race for five seconds a little extra power bijsteken. That may not seem like much, but it can be sufficient to make a critical catch-up. What the F1 and the FE is perhaps the most apart, is the equality of cars. In F1, each car is completely different, while in the Formula E, the cars are almost identical. All teams will receive a standaardchassis that they should work, and also the battery, tires and brakes are the same.

The cars of the FE are besides slowly to the big boys. In the first four seasons of the FE was the capacity of the batteries is still too small for a full race distance, but with the new cars is that problem of the job. The bizarre scenes in which riders halfway through the race is obliged in a second car have to change, belong to the past.

In the F1 there are no points given for riding the fastest lap in qualifying or the race. In the FE this is the case. The rider himself on the poleposition qualify, get three points. Who in the race the fastest lap of the ride, a gift. This requires that the rider be in the top ten finish. So there is for every pilot, something to pick up, what also leads to that the drivers take more risks.

No chance of boredom, so, and certainly not because an ePrix not so long. For each race applies a time limit of 45 minutes. Once that time has elapsed, the participants still one round to drive to the finish line. In the F1 take up most of the races are almost twice as long. And another advantage is for lovers: while the F1 races in recent years more and more often behind the walls of pay-tv channels will disappear, it will send the FE of her races, after all, live on YouTube. Free so, and with expert English commentary. If you prefer to be with English commentary can also tune in to Play Sports. (sva, mlde)
