After 6 years of great racing, drama & excitement, Formula E finally gets the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP STATUS for Season 7.
We didn't need it to prove that the serie is a treat to watch, but it's super important for all the Constructors & Sponsors involved.
We can expect another step into the Top Levels of Motorsport with Season 7, that's the coming of age for Formula E!
But what can we expect from the first Formula E World Championship Season?
Let's dive right into it!
The Season 6 of Formula E just finished after an incredible, action packed week of Racing at the Tempelhof Airport of Berlin.
6 Races in 8 days, unprecedented even in Motorsport History.
A forced decision, it was: Formula E had to scrap half the calendar due to the Coronavirus crisis, and had to go for a ballsy solution in order to bring the championship home.
Many liked it, some disliked the format. But, all in all, we had a blast during the whole week of racing at the Tempelhof.
At the end of an intense week, Antonio Felix Da Costa of Techeetah took the Driver's Title.
The portoguese of DS Techeetah scored an impressive streak of Pole & Victories to end the season on TOP, assuring the Team also the Constructor's title.
Missed some of the Action in Berlin? Don't worry!
Now it's time to Focus on next season, wich is set to be the Best one yet of Formula E!
