Venturi ABB FIA Formula E driver Felipe Massa took on a race against a Peregrine falcon following a call from race fans for a rematch following the ABB FIA Formula E drag race between a cheetah and an ABB FIA Formula E car last season.
The race took place in the Saudi Arabian desert to promote this weekend’s season opening Saudi Arabia ePrix.
Speaking about the race, Felipe Massa said:
t was an incredible experience for me to race against the fastest member of the animal kingdom – it’s not something I will forget in a hurry. I like the fact that this idea came from the fans, and Formula E listened and accepted the challenge. The footage from the drive is very special and it was a privilege to take part. I’m looking forward to returning to Ad Diriyah and to start racing. It’ll be my first race in Formula E and I’m eager to get behind the wheel again. I’ve missed racing and this series has shown to be one of the most competitive out there.”
We won’t give away who won the race!
