Formula E is one of the greenest racing series in the world, as the cars the racers drive are all-electric, so it was curious when climate change protesters disrupted a race in Germany on Sunday.
Several white-shirted activists climbed the fences of the Tempelhof compound in Berlin and sat in front of cars already off the starting grid. Letzte Generation (Last Generation) posted a video of protesters disrupting the start of the race. The protesters were taken off the track by security guards.

The activists confused those who watched and commented on the race on social media.
