Just another thought here - The BBC are covering a lot of Formula E content in all its formats recently. Heard news of it on Radio 2, online and TV News. I wonder if they are gradually phasing it in as they may be planning to screen it in the UK. Would be perfect for them to get back into Motorsport as they'd just be able to show the world feed and it would cost them nothing. Plus ticks the boxes on the licensing commitments.
Apparently the activation zones for the higher power mode will be off line or indeed an alternative longer route round the circuit. Once you've gone through it you get 2 to 4 mins power boost to use later. Meaning you have to chose between track position or a later boost.
I'm not sure if the above is actually true and if it is I'm not sure how I feel about it.
Well I advocated a motor on each wheel years ago. I'm glad to see someone else has some sense. But what he does not say is how he is going to get this extra power to make it as fast as an F1 car, that is very dependant on power storage.
