Meet Tom Dillmann: Formula E’s latest electrifying talent

Tom Dillmann certainly made a positive impression in the FIA Formula E Championship when he made his race debut around the streets of Paris several weeks ago, picking up four vital constructors’ points for Venturi GP in what seemed to be a one-off outing for the young Frenchman in the all-electric championship.

Since racing around the streets of the French capital, it has been confirmed that Dillmann has now secured a full-time race seat with the Monaco-based Formula E team starting in Berlin this weekend. This fortuitous opportunity presented itself after Stephane Sarrazin, whose seat Dillmann will be filling, left the team to drive for Renault-powered Techeetah after the quick departure of their driver Esteban Gutierrez. This driver change means that Dillmann will pair with German driver Maro Engel for the rest of the 2016/17 season.

WATCH: My FIA Formula E experience in Monaco 

As many of you will know, I recently travelled to Monaco and Paris for back to back weekends of the FIA Formula E championship. As well as collecting a wealth of content for this very website, I also tried to film as much as possible so I could put together a little video blog from my trip. It’s hardly groundbreaking coverage from behind the scenes of the all-electric championship but it was fun to make and a nice way to reflect on such a surreal weekend.

Evans: Formula E is “the busiest I’ve ever been behind the wheel”

Mitch Evans is a cheeky Kiwi that at the age of just 22, is the youngest Formula E driver on the current grid. Driving for British team Panasonic Jaguar Racing, Evans has proved himself to be a huge talent behind the wheel of his all-electric Jaguar I-TYPE, scoring championship points in the past two consecutive races.  Despite only competing in his and the team’s fifth Formula E ePrix over the weekend, the former GP2 race winner has made the transition into Formula E and it’s fair to say his performance is looking, well electric.

Rosenqvist prepares for his ‘dream’ Monaco debut

Felix Rosenqvist is a driver that seems to ace any motorsport championship that is thrown his way. Whether that be single-seaters or endurance racing, he delivers top results in every discipline he does. Which is why it seems bizzare that this Swedish superstar of a driver has yet to race at Monaco professionally.

From Mexico to Monaco: Formula E returns to the streets of Monte Carlo

The all-electric FIA Formula E Championship makes its way to Monte Carlo this weekend, just over a month since an action-packed ePrix around the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez circuit in Mexico City. The Monaco ePrix will be the second time the series has raced around the principality, with the first visit to the iconic venue being during the first season of the championship in 2015. It was here Renault e.Dams driver Sebastien Buemi took his second win of the championship, becoming the first driver to win two rounds in the series over two years ago.

Could Rally Argentina deliver WRC with five different winners in five consecutive rallies?

It was the perfect start for the new era of the FIA World Rally Championship: four different winners from four manufacturers in the first four races of the calendar. It’s a statistic that any motorsport series could struggle to beat and although it’s unlikely that another manufacturer could become the fifth consecutive winner in Argentina this weekend, another rally winner is a high possibility.
