Championship overview

The fastest growing motorsport series started life as a few notes drafted on the back of a napkin by founder Alejandro Agag and FIA President Jean Todt, back in 2011 in Paris. These notes were the basis for what would become the world’s first all-electric international single-seater championship.

Formula E’s founding mission was to race through the streets of the most iconic cities in the world - with a grid full of the best racing drivers and teams - to show just what sustainable mobility was capable of and how it can counteract climate change. It made its debut in the grounds of the Olympic Park, Beijing, in 2014.

For Season 7, the series has been awarded ‘World Championship’ status, which elevates its standing to the elite level of motorsport. It currently boasts the participation of ten global car manufacturers.

To control costs the carbon fibre chassis and battery are common components and the same for all twelve teams. This allows the focus to be on developing electric vehicle powertrains which are efficient and lightweight which will improve the performance and range of future electric vehicles.
