Trulli Formula E Team live in an authentic agony. The regulatory change at the technical level it has not been sitting nothing good to the team. The training led by Jarno Trulli, former F1 driver, opted for Motomatica to develop the unit of electric power of your car, with results to date disastrous. His presence in the preseason was testimonial, with barely any kilometres on the test at Donington Park and even in the bosom of the team he came to value take a step back and return to the car original, the SRT01-and that they are using the Team Aguri and Andretti Formula E.
however, Jarno Trulli decided to give continuity to your bet with Motomatica. The team continued working on the concept of his car, but upon the effective date of approval, the vehicle’s electrical equipment was not yet ready to comply with the technical requirements in the category. Trulli Formula E requested an extension for the approval of his car, a request that was accepted by the commissioners technical. The cars travelled as far as Beijing, even though they were not yet ready to compete, but the team could not delay further the delivery of your material to China if I wanted to have options to be in the ePrix in Beijing.
The result, Trulli Formula E Team lost the ePrix in Beijing, unfortunately for Jihua Group, its main sponsor and with a great interest in China. The Motomatica JT-01 was not approved and obviously could not take part in the first test of the season. The race ran with only 18 vehicles and ended with the victory of Sébastien Buemi. The team of Trulli andspera able to solve this problem for the second test of the season, the ePrix in Putrajaya (Malaysia). This event is being held on the 8th of November and by then the car should be homologated.
