Formula E: Debut is promising, but room for improvement

Aside from the fact that the Beijing, China track was far more suited to karts than cars, the Formula E series put on an interesting show in the series debut, which aired at 3:30 a.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, a time when most viewers have either fallen asleep without turning off the TV, or are searching for something on Cinemax. The broadcast itself left much to be desired, with lots of ambient noise, both from the rather substantial crowd and the cars - how much of that is motor, how much is gearbox? - that at times it seemed hard to pick out anchor Jack Nicholls and very competent commentator Dario Franchitti.
