38Formula E has first big crash in dramatic final-corner battle for victory

The electric racing series Formula E has just made its world debut on the streets of Beijing, and some motorsports have gone whole seasons between crashes as dramatic as the last-lap scrap between Nick Heidfeld and Nicolas Prost in China.

Perspective is everything. Take, for example, the inaugural FIA Formula E championship. To us it's notable as the first global electric racing series. But to racing drivers, it presents a new opportunity.

Fill his space, though, is exactly what Renault has had to do after Kubica's unfortunate crash in an Italian rally left him severely – if not critically – injured. But if anyone's up to the task, it's Nick Heidfeld.

Not that BMW's Sauber F1 car has anything more than three letters in common with cars that bear the propeller logo on public streets, but who's going to argue with the opportunity to lay down the tools early? Hotshoe Nick Heidfeld recently treated a crowd of laborer's at BMW's Munich factory to the spectacle of a big-dollar race car being treated like a hand-me-down Reliant, complete with a body-damaging finale. The shriek of a high-strung F1 racer while it slides around doing lurid donuts is a
