The German Formula One driver, Nick Heidfeld is currently competing in the Formula E championship. He has been associated with teams like Prost, Sauber, Jordan and Williams during his Formula One career but he failed to win a single race since his debut in 2000. His final stint with Renault ended in 2011 and since then he has been looking for other options whereby he could practice his sport. The new Formula E racing has suited his style and he has taken to his job with a lot of enthusiasm. However the hazards of the sport never leave the drivers even at an experienced age.
Nick Heidfeld had a narrow escape in the latest race that he participated in Beijing. The collision with Nicolas Prost sent his car flying and crashed against heavy barriers. The team members and fans were shocked to witness the incident but Nick somehow managed to escape without any major damage. He ran to Prost after this incident and there was a fall out between the two. Prost can be under investigation after this incident. Nick Heidfeld felt that it was an intentional nudge but Prost refused to agree. It was only after a day that Prost issued a statement saying that he felt himself responsible for the incident and was ready to pay the fine. The crash however proved fruitful for Brazilian De Grassi who picked up an unexpected win. Frank Montagny and Sam Bird were the other two drivers who managed to finish in the top three. It was a disappointing race for Bruno Senna as well as he failed to record a lap in qualifying due to some technical problems. Formula E is gaining enough popularity as the days go by and the competition among the drivers is only going to intensify in the recent future.
