The Top 5 Formula E Overtakes So Far

Though we’re just four races into the inaugural Formula E season, the all-electric racing series has already proven to be an action-packed affair with plenty of thrills, spills, and crashes to go around. As Formula E prepares for its next race in Miami in March, it has released this video of the 5 best overtakes in the series so far.

So far there has yet to be an emergent, dominant team as drivers are still figuring how to best manage both their speed and limited energy. While Lucas di Grassi managed to win the first race and still holds onto the points lead, he’s only ten points ahead of the young Brit named Sam Bird. What’s of particular note is that di Grassi, Bird, and Sebastian Buemi (who sits in third place) all have a DNF in addition to their finishes, as all have suffered race-ending collisions, demonstrating just how brutal this silent racing series can be.

But that’s enough yammering for me. Sit back and catch up on the best passing maneuvers Formula E has to offer so far, and keep in mind that the season is only half over. There’s still plenty of time for even better moves from these all-electric racers.
