Current FIA Formula E Championship leader Lucas di Grassi has claimed that Formula 1 champions Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel would have a difficult time if they came to Formula E.

While admitting that they were the most talented drivers of his generation, he said that the new tracks and the lack of practice time available would make it more difficult for them to adapt to the series.

Di Grassi raced against both drivers in Formula 1 in the 2010, and also in the 2005 Formula 3 Euro Series when he was beaten by Hamilton.

Speaking to CNN ahead of the Paris ePrix, di Grassi said, “They would have a hard time coming to Formula E.”

“They are fantastic drivers, they are the most talented drivers of our generation and maybe, I would say, almost our lifetime, but if they come to Formula E they would find it hard.”

“They will have to learn the tracks, because all the tracks are brand-new, they are all city tracks, you cannot practise on the tracks”

“I think I will invite them to come to race, even if it’s just one race, and see how it is. I’m sure they would be tough competition, but they would have a hard time.”
