Who thinks they can beat Sam?

sambird.pngAbout Sam Bird

After winning the season finale at his home race in London last year, Sam Bird was understandably happy at how his first season in Formula E progressed. Another race race win in Putrajaya made Bird a serious contender in the fight for the championship, but three DNFs left him trailing the leading pack in the closing stages. This season he has remained at DS Virgin Racing and has a new team-mate in Jean-Eric Vergne.

About Formula E

The FIA Formula E Championship is the world’s first all-electric motor racing series.

The concept was initiated by FIA President Jean Todt as a means to demonstrate the potential of sustainable mobility. Inspired by this vision, Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag took the idea and created a global entertainment brand with motor racing at its heart.
