Formula E Putrajaya ePrix: #SamBoost
The following post was originally written for The Lowdown and is geared towards a motorsport audience. Most of the analysis is gear toward that audience rather than a tech crowd. Since I think that a major all-electric motorsports championship is kind of a big deal in the tech world and because this was a really good race, I thought we should continue covering Formula E with a look at the second ePrix.
For the second time, the FIA’s new green motorsport took to the streets in an attempt to show that motorsport doesn’t have to be all loud noises and high-octane to be a spectacle.
After a so-so first outing that was only highlighted by a massive accident in the final turn, Formula E returned with a trip to the streets of Putrajaya, Malaysia, that saw battles throughout the field. Well, except at the front where Sam Bird absolutely dominated the day’s running to win his first ePrix.
