This week, we join Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team on our first outing as Principal Partner to the team, at the first race of Season 6 of the ABB Formula E Championship. We’re incredibly proud to be involved and to take Vestas’ vision for a sustainable energy future to new heights, showcasing it in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship together with some of the world’s most innovative and influential companies.

As the cars take to the track, Vestas’ more than 25,000 employees will also be starting a journey as part of this team, together with drivers, Stoffel Vandoorne and Nyck de Vries competing in the Championship with this team for the first time.

I can hardly wait to get racing again. Testing is very nice, but it's good to be switching back to race mode and to see where we are compared to the other teams. It's not going to be easy, and it is hard to make any sort of forecast. We have to stay focused and try not to make mistakes. If we manage to do that, we should be in with a chance of a decent result.

So, what is there to do and why should you get involved? It’s an exciting – you could almost say “electrifying” – 45 minutes of adrenaline-filled, sustainable racing, and there are plenty of options for our drivers to get ahead. Take “Attack Mode” for example, in which each driver benefits from a time-limited power boost of no less than 235 kW!

But that’s not all. If you haven’t done so already, YOU TOO can support our drivers with a “Fan boost” for the first two races in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, by voting here or on the Formula E app. This means that the top five drivers will get an extra power boost during the race, but only if you cast your vote for them! Last but not least, don’t forget to follow the races on Friday and Saturday. Visit fiaformulae.com or download the official app to find out how to view, wherever you are.

Thanks for your support so far – now it’s time to show the world what it’s like to be #PoweredbyVestas. See you on the track!
