Well, if teams can't multiply by 1, they deserve to get disqualified.

It's been really close a few times - if teams take risks, they'll sometimes be punished for it.

I'll be interested to see how race control actually calculates these reductions and whether the same reduction would have been applied regardless of whether they predicted there would be 1 or 2 more laps.

Edit: so apparently it's 1kwh reduction per full minute under SC. The only discretion is that the race director can decide to cancel the energy deduction entirely.

It had shades of Monaco 1982, I think we should get within two or three laps of the finish they shouldn’t be taking off energy because everyone was on the dregs of what I had left by then

Indycar…. Oops :eek:

In a way I’m kind of happy Rossi’s out as I hate when he has the pink car as it confuses me with Jack Harvey’s, very much a Harvey supporter, i’m not just because he’s from Britain but because he’s actually local to me.

Yeah a costly start! Reminds me of F1 in Mugello last year. In a way it's surprising there aren't more start crashes on ovals with how packed up they are.

Just catching up on todays Formula E, More passing in a lap than will be in the entire F1 race (or tomorrow’s for that matter) not all necessarily legal but fun nevertheless, I just wish they’d get rid of Fanboost, it’s unfair on the unpopular drivers.

I see Formula E is moving to Channel 4 this weekend, to say it’s jumping around a bit is an understatement

Intrigued what the race is going to be like with it being partially indoors, i.e. what surface they will actually be running on as they go inside.
