But beating the premier class is by no means the goal of Formula E. It wants to show what e-mobility can already do today – and what will be possible with electric vehicles in the future.
The pilots are of course particularly pleased about this. Lotterer grins: “The thing has more bang and that’s good for us drivers.”
He doesn’t think much of the constant comparisons with other racing series either. “We’re here to get a strong message across in motorsport,” emphasizes the Porsche star. “Formula E is here to present the future. It’s also about sustainability, not just performance.” That’s why “you shouldn’t compare it to other racing series. Speed is not always everything.”
