Formula E 2015/2016 – The Drivers

For many, the space-age world of Formula E is understandably still a very new concept. It’s only been going one year, after all, so we’ll let you off this time.

Because of this, we thought we’d be generous enough to whip up a ‘who’s who’ when it comes to the sport, which you can check out below. So soak up all the info, then go and brag to your mates at the pub about your new-found knowledge.
