Formula E Podcast – Make-Your-Own Battery Delay, Plus Thoughts On Season Opener
3 MO BY AUTOSPORT
News that battery competition has been delayed, and what we learned from the Formula E 2017/18 season opener in Hong Kong, are the subjects of the latest edition Autosport podcast, plus a little InsideEVs mention too.
Scott Mitchell and Anthony Rowlinson, who were both in Hong Kong, join Edd Straw to explain the reasoning behind the change in Formula E’s ‘roadmap’ for the future.
The unexpected results from Hong Kong are also delved into, with title favourites Lucas di Grassi and Sebastien Buemi scoring only one point between them, as are what they mean for the rest of the season.
There’s also an explanation of exactly how Sam Bird won the first race after serving a drive-through penalty, and what caused Edoardo Mortara to push too hard and throw away a debut victory in the second race.
