Clean tactics: 3 ways Formula E will transform the electric vehicle industry

I’m a stubborn Formula 1 fan. The series laden with passion, romance, tragic history and manic technical development entrances me every second weekend to no end. It’s a sport that many have grown up with, watching the battles between legends like Senna and Prost, Schumacher and Hill and now Hamilton and Rosberg. But it’s reign as the premier motorsport on the planet is under major threat from a series that wasn’t billed as a challenger at all.

Formula E burst onto the scene this weekend, relatively untried and untested especially on the back of slowing electric vehicle sales worldwide. It was a venture into the unknown, the never-before seen side of motorsport that would’ve seemed ridiculous just five years ago. I’ve bashed Formula E in the past, noting that its propensity to force its green-first agenda was wholly hypocritical to its makeup, and tainted what could make the sport great.
