The long awaited Formula E series went off well today – I watched it live this morning and enjoyed it very much. It seemed closer and more skilled than recent Formula 1 events. The most important thing from an electric advocate’s point of view is that the cars performed extremely well.
However, it had perhaps the most dramatic end to any motorsport race when, on the final corner of the final lap – with the finish line in sight – the two leading cars touched leading to one somersaulting into the crash barrier. Fortunately neither driver was hurt, but the driver then in third place – Lucas di Grassi – won the race.
I recommend watching it all if you can – but otherwise make sure you catch the last lap! Highlights are on UK television tonight, on ITV4 (6-7pm). No doubt the final event will feature in the news on every channel.
