Rome E-Prix review + Is the Formula E penalty system fair‪?‬ The Race Formula E Podcast

    • Sports

An excellent weekend of Formula E action in Rome is picked over by The Race’s Sam Smith and Andrew van de Burgt, who are joined by motorsport industry veteran Jim Wright.
Wright is currently the commercial director for the Andretti motorsport group and had previously filled similar roles at the Williams F1 team and the Venturi and Mahindra Formula E organisations.
He's probed on the weekend's action, including his reaction to a pair of wins for Mitch Evans, his thoughts on the new qualifying format, and which drivers he thinks may or may not be attractive in the Gen-3 era of Formula E.
Also discussed is Sam Bird’s three-place grid drop for Monaco, which expands into a more existential discussion about whether the penalty structure is right in international racing at all. And there's also a deep dive into Oliver Turvey’s remarkable run from 22nd to 7th, plus reaction to Jean-Eric Vergne's extraordinary radio antics in Sunday’s race.
