Formula E Receive’s Blessings From Pope Francis/RNN
We've been reporting to you on Formula E for years. Does not get much better in life than to be blessed by the pope. Pope Francis is a true guardian of our environment and angel of change.
What a week’s it’s been and what a week it’s going to be.
If you missed it, his Holiness Pope Francis last Wednesday welcomed a selection of drivers competing in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship to his residence in Santa Marta ahead of the first-ever E-Prix on the streets of Rome that took place this past Sunday.
Over half the grid and the fully-electric Formula E car made the short trip to Vatican City, prior to the inaugural race in the Italian capital on Saturday for the CBMM Niobium Rome E-Prix presented by Mercedes EQ – round seven of the 2017/18 ABB FIA Formula E Championship.
Alongside Founder & CEO of Formula E Alejandro Agag – as well as ACI President Angelo Sticchi Damiani – the drivers, team representatives, and the official championship car were given a private Apostolic Blessing before attending the papal audience. Now, what could have been better than that? Well maybe it would have been fun to see his Holiness give up the Pope Mobile in exchange for a couple runs around St. Peter’s Square in the electric Formula E car itself, who knows Formula E might be open to Team Vatican.
