Formula E has announced how the new attack mode race format will feature in this season’s race weekends as well as how it will be presented to TV and trackside viewers.
To launch the attack mode drivers must travel through an off-line activation zone, featuring three timing sensors, after arming the attack mode via a button on their steering wheels to access a higher power mode of 225kW.
This is designed to ensure drivers lose time before getting access to the higher power mode – with the system, which is mandatory to use.
Drivers who are in the attack mode will have their halo glow blue which shows that they are in attack mode, making it easier for viewers at the races and watching on TV.
Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag is excited to see the attack mode in action and is delighted that Formula E is innovating a new style of racing.
