All Formula E teams run on the same chassis and battery unit to ensure a level playing field. The emphasis during each race is on driver skills and their ability to deliver power while maintaining optimum battery performance. However, one advantage a driver can acquire is from FanBoost. The five drivers with the most FanBoost votes are awarded a significant burst of power, which they can deploy in 5 second windows during the second half of the race. Fans can vote up to four times a day during the 6 days prior to, and up to 6 minutes into, each race.
“Fanboost is the closest thing to having the fans in the cockpit with you. Your votes could give me the edge to boost the car into the lead when I need it most. The extra power delivered by Fanboost could not only determine the outcome of the race, but also the whole championship. Vote Mitch! #FanBoost #MitchEvans”
“Knowing you have the fans behind you takes racing to the next level. Formula E is the only motorsport in the world that allows fans to have such an involvement in influencing the outcome of a race – and in this championship, marginal gains can make all the difference. Having that extra boost of power could help me with that crucial overtake or decisive defence on race day. Vote Alex! #Fanboost #AlexLynn”
