Despite being just 29 years of age, Oliver Turvey has plenty of racing experience to his name.

He calls himself a ‘versatile driver’, and with drives in Super GT, Le Mans LMP2, Formula 1 testing and most recently Formula E under his belt, there’s no reason to doubt that.

Such a wide range of experience puts Turvey in a great position to comment on the differences of racing in electric cars, so when I met him ahead of this weekend’s London ePrix Formula E finale, I asked the NextEV driver to talk me through them.

“In terms of the powertrain, in a Formula E car when braking you have regen, so you are trying to regenerate energy through the braking zone, and that really affects how the braking feels,” he said. “It makes the car a little bit lively at the rear.”
