yeah the market is looking pretty secure & alonso put paid to that, as shwartzmann will likely take the alfa seat if Kimi does retire & perez will take haas seat if grosjean goes & he isnt in the red bull academy
da costa on pole. championship rivals in order are 17th, 15th, 11th, 13th & 9th. barring a DNF or mechanical failure its looking like an open goal for da costa & maybe for 1st in formula e history no last race decider
1st of all the main point what moron at BBC Sport put a 2017 madness concert on the red button at 6pm. instead of the live Berlin EPrix i dont know. that is incompetence at high level thankfully when ive come back from iPlayer come to the rescue & did a rapid upload
on the race it was better than yesterday & we had alot more racing action. still not at the racing level we assume formula e always gives us. & 68pt lead now for da costa 12pts more than 2nd & 3rd combined. 3 poles 3 wins. great stat that with just these last 2 races da costa would still lead the championship so in the words of stevie wonder he almost got that title signed sealed & delivered.
da Costa is that far now that he can win the title on Saturday. if he takes his 4 consecutive pole & win.
vandoorne & evans - 7th or lower
di grassi - 6th or lower
Bird & Buemi - 5th or lower
gunther & Sims 3rd or lower
Lotteter 2nd or lower
oh certainly that was certainly a race of 2 halves pre & post safety car. Fully expecting da Costa to wrap up the title tonight. 2nd is all he needs regardless of anyone. but if gunther doesn't win he might only need a top 5 finish
Massa has been as much use as a 2 legged, blind cart horse in Formula E.
The absolute low being his rediculous refusal to back up when requested to do so to avoid bringing out the safety car at the first Berlin race. As well as the reason he needed to move being the fact he'd driven himself off the track without any contact with another driver.
He'll be lucky to get any sort of decent drive in any series now.
massa looked like a person on the way out & the drive almost looked like a favour post williams. wehrlein apart from strugling to spell his name has flattered to deceive. ive talked before about his poor record on paper. looks good on the surface til you do some digging. but yes jani only really turned up in the final race
on next year. i think its too obvious. as techeetah only won 1 of last 4 races of last season & then dominated this season. also can forget that techeetah felt apart in qualifying in the last 2. it cant be underestimated how da costa went from last to 8th in the final race
Hankook has created a major surprise by snatching the deal to supply the Formula E Championship with tyres for its Gen3 car from 2022
Bit of a surprise given how well Michelin have done (can you think of one complaint by one team or driver ever?) however I think there are politics at play. Formula E are making a very big push to the South Korean market and given Seoul is the most environmentally healthy city in the world it fits their brand. Maybe we'll see Hyaundi join the grid.
