The Story of Formula E: from Concept to Reality

In 2012, the concept of all-electric international single-seater racing was born. FIA President Jean Todt developed the idea as a means to demonstrate the potential of sustainable mobility. Inspired by this vision, Formula E Founder and CEO Alejandro Agag created a global entertainment brand with motor racing at its heart. 

Since making its global debut in the grounds of the Olympic Park in Beijing in 2014, Formula E has become a destination for the world’s best drivers, teams and manufacturers. Now in its Fifth season, the Championship boasts one of the best driver line-ups in motorsport, with an exciting calendar of host cities and increasingly innovative technology on the track.


Formula E's FanBoost – a unique interactive experience


Formula E is the only event in the world that lets fans play an active role in influencing the outcome of the race.

FANBOOST gives fans the opportunity to vote for their favourite driver and award them an extra boost of power during the race.

How does it work?

The three drivers with the most FANBOOST votes are awarded a significant burst of power, which they can deploy in a 5 second window during the second half of the race. You can vote to FANBOOST your favourite driver in the 6 days prior to, and leading up to 6 minutes into, each race.
There are three ways to vote on FANBOOST:

How much extra power do they get?

The FANBOOST winners receive a power boost of 100kJ . The power boost lasts for five seconds and is activated via a lever behind the steering wheel. The three winning drivers get the additional boost, giving them each a shot at using the boost to make a crucial overtake.

The FANBOOST can only be used once. Once the lever is pulled the additional power becomes available, and regardless of whether all five seconds are used, it cannot be used again.
