      Yeah, it won't be sad to watch them take 40s to go down the front straight at Monza.

          I remember when Formula E was announced as a concept. I went to the two Long Beach races. Loved the first race with Nelson Piquet Jr.'s win. The race in the next year was awful.

                          fanboost is crap... cause fraud is not really excluded
                          just because they vote online... attack boost is fine..
                          and a good way to overtake, or not... but they need
                          faster engines, more power at least.. real slicks also..

                                Well...formula e doesn't need air for combustion like petrol so this will be the race class of choice in SPACE!! Think about it for a sec...formula e race on the moon with weak gravity. Your watching them zip around at 200 mph, they go into a tunnel, some racer drives up the side of the tunnel, they go intverted going 200 mph and just drive back down the other side of the tunnel and overtake someone on so speed racer type shit, thats the future that's why this is about to be lit!!

                                  As a new sport in an era where social media exists I can understand why they are doing fan boost, but I think it's idiotic and should be done away with.
                                  I think some good ways to engage with fans by letting them have race input would be voting on things like attack mode duration in the lead up to a race or on minor alterations to a circuit layout(where possible) during the pre-season. Both keep the teams on their toes and let the fans have some real input without giving anyone a clear advantage. You could even have drivers vote to keep or reset a track alteration after the season and over the years fans could watch some of the circuits evolve.

                                      Top reasons not to watch it.
                                      They have no souls
                                      They will take our gas engines away
                                      They will promote cbd and make weed legal
                                      They will increase gays and lesbians
                                      They will finally wipe out the humans because no babies will be born

                                        Your gas engine will be a expensive paperweight when fossile fuels run out.

                                        Weed and Racing doesn't go well together.

                                        How will racing make people gay?

                                        There will be babies no matter what.

                                        I don't like the idea of fully electric cars, but I actually think formula E is an exception. For everyday cars on everyday roads, I'm sure hydrogen is the better answer. Still haven't formed an opinion of which is better, hydrogen fuel cells, or regular hydrogen. For racing on tracks though, I think electric is a great option, especially after watching this video

It was slow, uneventful, and changing cars in the middle of the race was so stupid it lowered the "sport" to a disposable razor level...

                                                                        ALSO !!! your sponsors being shown in the captions was priceless !! Loved it and read it all hahahah (much better than having to watch the whole thing)

And that is fine. What is good about it is that it can be a great way to get new people hooked on all kinds of motorsports
