Monegasque schoolboys and girls had an unforgettable day, on Thursday, meeting Formula E drivers before Round 9 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. A unique experience to discover first hand some of the secrets of electric motorsport.
Students from Charles III College, FANB and St Charles School had the chance to meet Formula E drivers on Thursday: Jean-Eric Vergne, Pascal Wehrlein, Antonio Felix da Costa, Oliver Rowland, Lucas Di Grassi, Andre Lotterer, Edoardo Mortara and Maximilian Günther were present to answer the questions of the novice journalists and to discuss their passion in a simple and friendly atmosphere.
To make this experience unforgettable, the drivers then took part in a signing and photo session for the greatest pleasure of the youngsters, who left with a lot of memories. They had been able to discover the world of Formula E and to better understand the ecological and sustainable aspects of electric motorsport. It was also an opportunity for the drivers to share their passion with the new generation and to make them aware of environmental issues.
The visit of the drivers to Monegasque schools was, again, a great success. It is now part and parcel of the official calendar of events during a Monaco E-Prix. And it makes the Monaco stop on the Formula E world tour much more than a simple race. It is also a moment of sharing for young and old in the Principality.
