    A few days of the curtain raiser of the Formula E, which will invade the street circuit laid out for the occasion in some streets of the metropolis, many are wondering about the profitability of the event and therefore on the number of spectators that the event will go to.

    One thing is certain, fanatics of Formula 1, which converge at the circuit Gilles Villeneuve every year during the presentation of the Canadian Grand Prix may not be the appointment, if we take into account their impressions of the Formula E gleaned here and there. First objection: the noise practically non-existent in their mechanics, and a bevy of drivers are not very well-known.

    The noise of the engines plays a major role in the appreciation of the show. However, this is not the only thing that is missing from the Formula E in which the interest will be raised as the day on which you will be able to attend a fight between various manufacturers as is the case in Formula 1. The fight between Ferrari and Mercedes or Williams and Red Bull’s double the interest of the viewer, who has not only their favorite drivers, but also its manufacturer favorite.

    The absence of marks in Formula E is according to me a serious shortcoming that could be addressed by the creation of a championship that would put the jacks all the manufacturers of electric automobiles with cars to illustrate their proficiency and their progress in the development of prototypes capable of participate in the fight for the electrification of transport.

    Better yet, the cars could look like the models of the series, as is the case in Nascar, even if the cars on the track are a far cry from the model of series they show.

    The interest in Formula E would be a giant step toward the development of a cutting-edge technology in the field.

    Just imagine a starting grid aligning of the Nissan, Chevrolet, Ford, Tesla, Volkswagen and all the brands that wish to give the money to participate fully in the electrification of transport. The grandstands would be full.

    Then it’s off to work gentlemen engineers.
