tigas should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
2018 Gen2 Spark-FormulaE car

FormulaE has started teasing about their new car

racer.com - Formula E releases teasers of new car

The Verge - FORMULA E’S NEW ALL-ELECTRIC RACECARS LOOK LIKE THEY FLEW HERE FROM THE FUTURE

Youtube teaser video

Max power output: 250KW / 336PS
Battery capacity should be about twice the old one, still built by McLaren
No more car swapping
Downforce comes from massive diffusers that seem to start not very far in the car, looks mostly like a flat bottom. The only way of making such huge diffusers work should be with air from tunnels or the sidepods.

No rear wing on the centerline, two winglets over the rear wheels. Even less help for energizing those diffusers.

Halo. Illuminated. FFS...

see, because they have full design freedom the halo actually looks fine.... still massively offensive but it's helped by the car being completely different to the one without a halo so you have nothing to compare it directly to. and the thing only looks a little bit like a climbing frame. looks a lot better than the gp2 bolt-on effort.

the cars don't runat particularly high speeds so i'd suggest a lot of the diffuser is just show like the rest of the bodywork?
