Plenty of ex-Formula 1 drivers have expressed interest in racing in Formula E in recent months, including Jarno Trulli. The car hadn’t run at full battery power before this test but when it was ready, the 2004 Monaco Grand Prix winner was there to put it through its paces.
Whatever you think of the idea of all-electric racing there’s no denying that the car looks and behaves like a proper single-seater; the sound might take a bit of getting used to but then again the same has been said of Formula 1 this year. The prospect of 20-or-so of these cars tearing around major cities – piloted by drivers from F1, WEC, IndyCar, DTM and other major series – is an exciting one and the racing promises to be top notch.
