The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship returns to the iconic Monégasque streets for the fifth time.

Monaco has already marked an important milestone for the Championship, with the Gen3 racer for Season 9 onwards officially revealed yesterday. The car will be faster, lighter and more powerful than its predecessors, in addition to being the most efficient with at least 40% of the energy used produced by regenerative braking during the race.

For ABB, Season 9 also marks the start of its role as Official Charging Supplier. Together with engineers from motorsport’s governing body, the FIA, and Formula E, ABB is developing an innovative and safe solution for charging the Gen3 cars. These portable charging units will be able to charge two cars simultaneously, delivering 80kW of power to each vehicle, for a total of 160kW output per charger. This means each race team will benefit from a ‘double charging’ capacity from one unit and a significant reduction in the charger footprint.

His resin grenades are bombarding us with a message of love. He doesn’t have the looks for the job.

Axel Lefrançais has entered the world of art as if it were a religion, namely with an unwavering faith in love. His life rules involve combatting all forms of violence. His weapons?
