World champion Sebastian Vettel has slammed the FIA’s new fully-electric single seater series, Formula E.

Sebastian_Vettel-German_GPThe new series, featuring nearly silent cars and an impressive collection of teams and drivers, will commence a global tour of street circuits starting with Beijing in September. But according to Vettel: “I think it’s cheese.” It is not the first time the Red Bull driver has turned to food for a putdown, having called his uncompetitive 2014 car a “cucumber” earlier this year.

But the quadruple title winner also earned a personal rebuke from none other than FIA president Jean Todt in 2014, when he referred to the sound of the new turbo V6 engines as “sh*t”.
