The season finale in Corona-crisis: The formula E electrifies the Berlin hardly

The track convey the feeling, complained André Lotterer to drive like a cheese grater. The former long-distance world champion and three-time winner of the 24 hours of Le Mans voice from the tarmac of the former airport Berlin-Tempelhof, which consists of large concrete slabs and about since Wednesday day, the vehicles, the formula E rumble.

With the image of the rustic kitchen device, which he called, in an Interview with the Berlin "Tagesspiegel", provided Lotterer for a little tangibility in this series, which seems to be with her compact season finale of Berlin, the reality is a little more caught up than it is already. In March, due to the Corona pandemic broken Company with six races in nine days to the end: for Wednesday and Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, and, according to the tag of the route, again on Wednesday and Thursday.

What will satisfy the claims of the sponsors and racing teams, vehicle manufacturers and TV transmitter, means for the audience: exclusion. After all, thousands of people to the hygiene requirements of the health office Tempelhof-schöneberg on the system, but this quota is to exploit the Teams and organisers, helpers and security personnel complete. In the past years, the Festival, which accompanied the race around the world, 25,000 visitors to the formula.

Moderate interest

Who does not want to sit in front of the TV and Eurosport to watch, is invited by the "official beer and cider partner" to the drive - in theater, which arose in a Parking lot at the Olympic stadium of 1936 came, also in connection with the Greentech.

It is not the admission price of 25 Euro is likely to have acted as a deterrent, but to the condition, in an electric or hybrid car; the other cars were not allowed in.
