#FanShare Send us your #FETest pics & you could win a print of @sambirdracing

Hi everyone,

I’d really like to make the 2015 Formula E Testing #FanShare gallery the biggest and best yet.

For that reason, if you send us your pics from the recent #FETests one photo will be selected at random and the owner of that picture will win a print of one of my Formula E Testing photo’s.

The photo I’ve chosen is of London ePrix winner Sam Bird…

So please get tweeting your #FETest pics… selfies, pit walk, drivers, cars… anything that captures your experience to @FormulaEDiary or email them to contact@formulaediary.com.

Everyone who has already sent pics to us will of course also be included.

We’ll close entries and announce the winner of the print on Friday, when we’ll also post up the #Fanshare gallery.

Thanks all!

His unique blend of speed and superb race craft alongside his charming and approachable personality got me thinking; is he the complete Formula E driver?…

Interview: #FormulaE CEO Agag talks Calendar, FanBoost & New Teams


Some CEO’s and senior figures can be hard to engage with. Alejandro Agag isn’t one of those people. Walking up and down the pitlane during the second week of testing, Agag was making time to talk to team representatives, drivers and members of the media. Never one to miss an opportunity to talk to someone in the series, I managed to get some time with him after he had just finished a round of interviews…

Interview: #DeSilvestro Getting to know Formula E’s exciting leading lady…

Simona de Silvestro

What I do know… her determination is obvious, and she is one of the loveliest people you could ever hope to meet…
