Now, Bertrand Piccard is giving Formula E an uplift, lending his support to the all-electric race series.Speaking on December’s Supercharged show, the Swiss adventurer praised Formula E for leading the charge to make electric cars more practical and attractive.

“Formula E is for car racing, what Solar Impulse is for aviation,” told Supercharged presenter, Nicki Shields.”It’s a new laboratory showing how clean technology can be sexy. It’s not anymore about something that is boring and expensive, it’s something that really attracts the awareness of people.

It’s spectacular.”Piccard and compatriot Andre Borschberg completed their historic solar-powered flight in July, touching down in Abu Dhabi after covering 26,700 miles (43,000 kilometers) over 23 days.

With room for only one in the cockpit, Piccard and Borschberg took turns to pilot Solar Impulse during the 17-leg adventure which took 16 months to complete.
