LPP68 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Formula E Season 6 (2019-2020)

Like last year, I pretended that formula E does not go to tho oil drilling and journalist decapitating capital of the world, so my season starts in a month and a half. Can't wait!
On a website for totally different motorsports I read this: https://www.touringcartimes.com/2019...ectrification/

It mentions that customer motorsports will also be electrified. What could that mean? A VW -ID-cup in the pre-race buildup for a Formula E event? (TBH, they could start on the same grid as the I-paces.)

Meanwhile, Santiago de Chile continues in chaos, but Formula E refuses to cancel the race.

Perhaps they'll wait until the week before like F1 in Bahrain a few years back.



I still don't know really what to think of this series. That last race was just chaos and didn't really show the series in a good light, but it was still kinda enjoyable to watch. Perhaps if they put a little more thought into the layout of the tracks?

Perhaps Formula E will bring peace to the streets of Santiago.

Some 'good' racing in the opening rounds I thought.

Buemi starting to get a bit desperate though! That dodgy rejoin was reminiscent of Vettel at Monza!

I was ok with it except for the SC mess. The rules regarding attack mode under SC are a disaster, and the restart with a crane on the track was absolutely unacceptable.

I like FE, but it still has issues that should have been sorted years ago. I'll be blunt - I don't think the race director is up to scratch and he should be replaced.

Most thankless job in the world. If he had waited until the crane was off the track and parked up people would have complained about the extra lap under the SC.


As it was they could see on the closed circuit cameras that the crane was reversing into the gap and the senior marshal on scene reported that it would be clear in time. What no-one spotted was a vehicle in the way that meant the crane couldn't complete it in one move as it should have been able to.

Not sure I agree with that. It certainly isn't a thankless job if done right (see WEC, ELMS and IMSA), but can be thankless when the series makes constant errors (see Blancpain and FE). I feel like FE is now mature enough that we should be having these sort of school boy errors. It isn't the first very poor that's been made.

I also question the CCTV and marshal report. It seems awfully coincidental that the race went back to green and then did a good few corners and only once the regular TV camera picked up the crane still on the circuit did they go back to yellow - and with some panic in the voice of the race director as well. He was clearly not aware of what state the circuit was in, as illustrated by the panic and late call to redeploy the yellow. I question what would've happened had the TV camera not picked it up.

I like Formula E - more than most motorsport fans it seems. But these sort of errors are not acceptable at any level. When you add in the complete inability to come up with effective rules regarding the Attack Zone and when you can overtake under SC, you end up with a bad painting of the current rule makers.

Good series. But the time for these sort of problems have passed. It needs to get a grip of things.
