Lewis Hamilton's X44 outfit has been named the inaugural winner of the Extreme E sustainability award.

X44 finished second in the standings by the narrowest of margins to Nico Rosberg's RXR team after a nail-biting finale at the Jurassic X-Prix.

Extreme E launched the 'Count Us In Challenge' ahead of its first season as a campaign using the power of sport and motor racing to inspire fans to take practical steps to climate change.

The challenge included a variety of actions for fans to contribute towards a greener future, such as not using single-use plastics and using sustainable modes of transport, with each step attributed to each fans' favourite team.

X44 earned the most steps with 792, with Jenson Button's JBXE squad finishing second with 749 steps. RXR finished third with 422.

In total, 3,207 steps were pledged by 1,231 fans to save 1,241,223kg of carbon dioxide.

X44 driver and World Rally Championship legend Sébastian Loeb said: “I was very happy to learn that X44 won the Extreme E Sustainability Award for 2021.

"I joined the team hoping to discover more about the environment while doing what I love, and I have learned so much from the series and the different places we visited - in fact I even bought my first electric car last year!

“To know that our fans have come on this journey with us and are making their own commitment to have a positive impact on the planet is inspiring and I feel good about what we can achieve when we work together.”
