Formula E is off to a crashingly good start in China with a close race and spectacular crashes. The cars even passed the driver stress test with Nick Heidfeld walking away from the most spectacular crash of the day.
The first race of the inaugural season saw drivers racing on roads surrounding Beijing’s Birds Nest. The cars are similar in design and construction to their older brother F1, with the exception of the power train. The all electric Formula E cars swap out the petrol engine for a 150-180Kw electric motor.
