Williams Advanced Engineering has won the “Most Innovative New Motorsports Product” for the Formula E battery.
The award was presented at the Race Tech World Motorsport Symposium earlier this week.
The battery, which powers the cars of all ten teams, was praised for having remarkable performance and reliability, with only one failure in the first season.
“The Formula E battery programme has been a significant examination from a design and logistics perspective,” Williams Advanced Engineering Managing Director Craig Wilson said. “I am extremely proud of how our team has risen to the challenge and produced a product that is garnering much attention both within the motorsport industry and the wider automotive world.”
Williams Advanced Engineering are designing a new battery for next season, working with a strict specification.
