Formula E is a laboratory for new technologies

Alain Prost, a former Formula One racer and multiple world champion, is confident that Formula E will serve as a laboratory for new technologies.

The revolutionary new racing series, in which racers compete with all-electric race cars, will have its premiere race tomorrow, and is already supported by some famous and wealthy men. One of them is Leonardo DiCaprio, and next to him is tycoon Richard Branson.

“In addition to competition, Formula E must be a kind of laboratory, especially for new types of technologies,” said Prost, co-founder of the E.Dmas Renault team, for which his son Nicolas will race.

Free pointed out that the race itself will be quite complicated, and the racers will have to work closely with their engineers to win, as all the racers in the first season of the competition are identical. “Driving at full speed all the time will not be the best choice, at least not at the beginning,” warned Prost, who was also known as Professor in Formula One racing days, precisely because of his careful, analytical approach.
