Formula E to gives fans chance to present race-winners' trophies

Welsh 'super-fan' James Harmon appeared on the podium next to Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag to present the winner's trophy to Sebastien Buemi last Sunday.

Harmon described the experience as "the greatest day of my life, it is only just sinking in that a dream has come true".

The 21-year-old's experience has become a hit on social media where his experience has been lauded by other fans and also some of the series' drivers.

FE has further stepped up its fan engagement efforts during the current season with an expanded fan village that has been rebranded in deference to new partner Allianz.

The podium is located within this village and is free to access for the fans.

"The brilliance of our event management and event experience team was showcased once again at the Berlin ePrix last weekend," Formula E's Renato Bisignani Autosport.

"The podium ceremony in the Allianz eVillage continues to be one of the most groundbreaking in motorsport, and in Berlin we took it a step further giving a fan the chance to hand out the trophy to race-winner Sebastien Buemi.

"It was amazing to see James standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the drivers in front of the crowd, a truly emotional moment for him."

FE also enclosed a section of the Berlin ePrix track within its 'EMOTION Club' hospitality centre last weekend.

OPINION: The 2021 Formula E campaign was one without a narrative for much of the season, with no single car or driver able to break away from the pack. That makes choosing a top 10 especially difficult, particularly as the qualifying format meant some worthy performers were unable to enjoy their day in the sun

But as the campaign wore on, the path to a title double became increasingly rocky.

His deal at Venturi Racing will ensure the championship's first-ever race winner will remain competitive into the final year of the current Gen2 ruleset - although it may not be a long-term fit
