FIA FORMULA E SEASON RACE WINNERS
THE FIA FORMULA E CHAMPIONSHIP
Formula E is centered around three core values of Energy, Environment and Entertainment fusing engineering, technology, sport, science, design, music, and entertainment – all combining to drive the change towards an electric future. The map provides the urban venues which hosted the Championship.
The power output of the race cars in Formula E is limited to 170 kW (race) and 200 kW (qualifying) by the regulations. An additional 30 kilowatts is allocated to the three most popular drivers as selected through an online voting platform called FanBoost.
The first season kicked off in September 2014 with a race through the streets of Beijing. The third season with an estimated 14 races at 12 events starts on the 9th of October 2016 in Hong Kong. The season will include new venues such as Marrakesh, Brussels, and Montreal. New York hosted the finale of the fourth season in July 2018.
