Formula E, officially the ABB FIA Formula E World 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. The 2022 season will see 16 races across 10 different circuits around the world.
There are 11 teams, 22 drivers and 22 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 seventh Formula E season saw Nyck de Vries secure the drivers’ championship by seven points over Edoardo Mortara.
Mercedes scored their first constructors’ championship as well as they beat Jaguar Racing by just four points.
