I Drank The Fuel That Powers Formula E

Here's another surprise from my experience in a Formula E car: the electric racers don't charge using power from the grid.

If there was ever a man who was driving to earn a seat, it was Jean-Éric Vergne this weekend at Formula E.

The Electric Future Of Motorsport Sounds Like Mind Invading Spaceships
