BERLIN, GERMANY (April 10, 2018)
“It is a very special moment to see a new car running for the first time in public. And it requires an equally special name to have that honour. To see a name like Rosberg taking the wheel of the Gen2 car in front of the German fans in Berlin is a great moment for the series.” Alejandro Agag – Founder & CEO, Formula E.
NICO ROSBERG will treat fans of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship at the Berlin E-Prix to the first public demonstration of the exciting Gen2 car.
He will get behind the wheel of the striking new model for next season. And he’ll disclose his long-term commitment to the series as an investor.
The German star and world champion F1 driver is set to make a one-off appearance ahead of the race – May 19, at Berlin’s Tempelhof Airport. He’ll drive the next generation Formula E car, which last month hit the headlines at the Geneva Motor Show. It’s scheduled to make its competitive debut in 2019.
Will the Rozzer race again?
Maybe a long bow! But NICO IS buckling-up and shaking down the new motor, taking to the track during a dedicated 10-minute slot before next month’s race. It’s the fourth edition of the Berlin E-Prix. And round nine of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.
NICO, a keen supporter of e-mobility and the electric street racing series, will confirm officially he’s already a long-term investor and shareholder in Formula E.
The Gen2 car boasts a futuristic new-look for Formula E. It shows a clear jump in performance over a race distance. And almost double the energy storage capacity.
“It will be great to experience this high-performance e-mobility car and let’s see if I still have it in me! It makes it even more special that I’m able to do this at the Berlin E-Prix, as I’ve always loved racing in my home country – Germany. Since my retirement, I’ve become very interested in the e-mobility movement and its potential to positively impact our society and our planet. I’ve therefore also long believed in the potential of Formula E and came on board as an investor some time ago.” Nico Rosberg.
