karimbo has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Honda will announce entering Formula E in ... weeks

How many weeks now for Honda to announce the REAL world premium championship, i.e. Formula E?



My guess is 30 weeks. And yours?

Great shame to put a thread about the contrived, artificial, utterly boring and pointless "Formula E" into the F1 section.

I'm assuming the original post was about but I won't bite too hard

Formula E is EXACTLY what can happen when actual motorsport ethos is subjugated to the desires of manufacturers and hand-wringing do-gooders - a crass, utterly contrived, not real, mess of a "how good are we" series that achieves precisely nothing for motorsport generally. Although it should be said that it does give drivers who couldn't quite make it in the real world somewhere to go.

Armco is on the money - the watching paint dry championship (along with the watching grass grow & snail marathon) is VASTLY more exciting.

There you go, told you I wouldn't bit too hard!

It will be announced by the 1st of December 2020, Dulux will be the team sponsor and Brunnings Grass Seeds will a secondary sponsor.

A one legged, transgender dwarf from an impoverished background with no prior driving experience will be the number 1 driver.

I hear the BBC are being urged to have more of this type of comedy in future.

There are other series outside of F1 you know. Just because a driver didn't have the opportunity, money or the right political connections to get into F1 or remain in F1 doesn't mean they "couldn't quite make it in the real world". All motorsport outside of F1 is the real world as far as I'm concerned.

People who say that FE is like watching paint dry have obviously never watched more than a few seconds of it. I've watched every race since it began and I've seen far more wheel to wheel racing in that time than in the Mercedes only F1 series.

I like Formula E a lot (flawed as it is) but this probably doesn't really belong in the F1 forum.
