Round 11 of ABB FIA Formula E Championship 2018/19 was run in the Swiss town of Bern. It’s the second year a row where the city hosts a Formula E race, but it was a completely different track compared to last year.

Championship leader Jean-Eric Vergne had taken Pole Position, ahead of Mitch Evans, Sebastien Buemi, Pascal Wehrlein, Maximilian Günther, Sam Bird,…

Formula E 2019/20 schedule announced

ABB FIA Formula E Championship has announced their 2019/20 racing schedule. The majority of the races are current events, but South Korea is a new addition. London returns after a few years out. And then we have two TBC races on the calendar so far. The race on 14 December clashes with the FIA World Endurance Championship race in Bahrain, so that puts drivers like Sebastien Buemi and Sam Bird in a difficult situation, if they choose to continue at Nissan e.dams and Envision Virgin Racing respectively – that is…

Eight winners in eight races

The eighth round of ABB FIA Formula E Championship was run at the streets of Paris, where there was once again drama before, during, and after the race. Oliver Rowland got Pole Position in front of his Nissan e.dams teammate Sebastien Buemi, as well as Robin Frijns and Felipe Massa.

Piquet Jr out, Lynn in

Panasonic Jaguar Racing are doing a driver change in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. Nelson Piquet Jr. are no longer part of the team, after both parties have decided to end their deal after one and a half seasons. Piquet Jr. is the very first Formula E Champion in history, when he won the title in 2014/15. It’s been a bit tough for him to follow up on that result, since the Brazilian has been unlucky to be in teams without podium potential, or only on very limited occasions.…
