Formula E | 5 facts about Season 5

Formula E Season 5 is set to be a thriller with new tech, new cars and a new way of racing. Grab your copy of our new January issue for the best in-depth analysis of all the Season 5 changes HERE (on sale 6th December).
Meanwhile, here are our top 5 takeaways?
5 facts you need to know about Season 5
Formula E will be entering Season 5 with 22 brand new cars, 11 teams, 7 manufacturers, 12 venues and an impressive driver line-up ? but what do you REALLY need to know about Season 5"

1. 1 race 1 battery
The battery of the new Gen2 car now has almost double the energy capacity at 52kWh and 85% more usable energy. So, one battery can now do the entire race meaning no more mid-race car-swaps. This will emphasise a driver?s skill in managing the tyre and brake temperatures to last the whole race.

2. Timed races
Races are no longer distance-based and are instead 45 minutes long plus one lap. This means that the energy saved during full course yellows or safety car periods can be used to go faster towards the end of the race = more exciting racing.
?This means that there is a moving target on the lap number, which is based on the lead car or expected lead car?s pace,’ explains Phil Charles, Technical Manager at Panasonic Jaguar Racing. ‘It also means that the engineers will need to constantly recalculate energy targets based on the expected number of laps remaining to complete. Therefore, there will still be a significant strategic aspect for the fans to follow as the drivers will still need to manage their energy and power levels to succeed.?

3. More power
Not only has maximum race power increased from 180kW to 200kW, but qualifying modes have gone from 200kW to 250kW. Similar to last season, Fanboost will give 100kJ of energy to a driver voted for by the fans while Season 5 will also have Attack Mode which allows drivers to engage 225kW up to a total of 8 minutes. The new race modes, Fanboost and Attack Mode now means that drivers could race with a total power of 250kW.
Attack Mode also adds another strategic element because drivers have to pass through a defined activation zone which is off the racing line and so they will initially lose time. However, the immediate power boost will help them to overtake – but when and where should a driver activate their Attack Mode for maximum benefit"

4. Brake by Wire
The new Season 5 cars will feature brake by wire on the rear axle. This means that the rear hydraulic brakes are only needed at the beginning of the race, when the battery is fully charged (as there can be no braking through regeneration). After several laps, when the battery needs recharging, the cars brake entirely through regeneration so the rear brakes aren?t actually needed at all.
5. Motors
Since Season 2,...
