Unlike in any other form of motorsport, in Formula E fans are able to influence the outcome of the event by voting for their favourite driver before the race has even started, and, in fact, up to six minutes into the race. This is where Formula E becomes truly ground-breaking.
How does it work?
The three drivers with the most votes each get a FanBoost which provides an extra 100kJ of extra energy to be used in a power window between 190kW and 200kW. You can vote for Sam or Alex through Twitter and Instagram, by using the relevant hashtags, and also through the Formula E website and app.
How can I vote?
To vote for Sam or Alex be sure to tag your Twitter and Instagram posts with either #FanBoost #Sambird OR #FanBoost #AlexLynn, or head to http://fanboost.fiaformulae.com
