Component distributor, Mouser Electronics cheered on the DRAGON / PENSKE AUTOSPORT Formula E team as it headed to the German capital, Berlin for rounds 7 & 8 of the 2021–22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship racing season on May 14 & 15.
The weekend-long event of all-electric racing took place at the historic Tempelhof Airport. The large, apron-style track layout helped give fans extra excitement, with the drivers racing the traditional counter-clockwise on Saturday, before they shifted to a rare clockwise race on Sunday, providing a completely new challenge for the second race. Sérgio Sette Câmara piloted the No. 7 Penske EV-5 car, while Antonio Giovinazzi was at the helm of the No. 99 car at the Berlin E-Prix. The next Formula E race takes place in Jakarta on June 4, 2022.

The Formula E series features cars that are powered solely by electricity and represent a vision for the future of the motorsports industry, serving as a framework for research & development around zero-emission motoring. The Gen2 cars offer a huge step forward in electric vehicle (EV) racing technology, with maximum power of 250 kW and speeds up to 280 km/h.
Formula E and FIA unveiled the new Gen3 cars before April’s Monaco E-Prix. The Gen3 cars, slated to debut in the 2022–2023 season, bring together leading-edge technologies to focus on merging sustainability and high performance. With a top speed of over 322 km/h and new front and rear drivetrains with a combined power of 600 kW, the next-gen car promises an even more exciting spectacle in Season 9.
