Nick Heidfeld drives electric

Nick Heidfeld drives electric

The former Formula 1 driver Nick Heidfeld is now a happy new owner of a Nissan LEAF.

The German driver, who lives in Switzerland, choose the LEAF over Volkswagen e-Golf or BMW i3 as family car.  (Although we suspect there has perhaps been some compensation influencing his choice of EVs)

Nick Heidfeld is one of two drivers for the Venturi Formula E Team, so electric cars are not unknown to him.

Maybe the daily use of Nissan LEAF is some kind of secret training strategy to better his performances in Formula E? Better watch out in Switzerland.
