Formula E, officially the FIA Formula E Championship, is a class of auto racing sanctioned by the FIA, and is the highest class of competitions for one make, single seater, electrically powered racing cars. The series was conceived in 2012, and the inaugural championship started in Beijing in September 2014.
There are ten teams, 20 drivers and 40 cars (Each team includes two drivers and four cars)
Racing circuits are located in cities and are approximately 2-3.4 kilometres long. The generators used to re-charge the batteries are powered by Glycerine, a by-product of biodiesel production.
The sixth Formula E season was scheduled to run from November 22 until July 26, but was postponed after the Marrakesh ePrix in late February and resumed six consecutive races in Germany from August 5.
