Every Formula E car will sound like a giant mosquito and will feature a 268 hp electric motor that is capped at 178 hp. Twice per race, each driver can unlock the full potential of the car by activating a brief boost.

Now we've heard that on the last lap the drivers will get a final boost. The magnitude of this penultimate boost will depend on how many Twitter mentions the driver gets. The idea of electric motorsport was starting to seem like it might be cool, but this is awful. Just as the fledgling Formula E started to exit the nest, the 13-year-old sociopath known as Tweet to Boost showed up with a vinegar-filled super-soaker.

It's embarassing that anybody thought this is a good idea.
