The official tests for the season 7 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship which took place at the Ricardo Tormo circuit (Valencia, Spain) from November 28 to December 1 were very encouraging for DS TECHEETAH. This session allowed the drivers and the team to check the relevance of their strategy and to test the software as well as the hardware in the ‘real world’. Unlike the urban circuits on which Formula E races take place, the Valencia circuit is a traditional one. It can therefore be difficult to compare its performances to that of other teams but these tests allows the team to equip engineers and drivers with the best tools for the season ahead.
