yes the race was good but almost all drivers started the final lap with 0.3-0.4% of battery remaining and ended the race with 0%, evans at example had to slow down during the last lap and lost a lot of positions. I keep on thinking that races should be reduced to 40 minutes or at least 45 minutes overall without the extra lap... there is really a thin line between a good race and a "valencia".
FE isn't endurance, also motoGP race are about 40-42 minutes long otherwise bikes would go out of fuel.

You do realise the races are exactly that long for exactly that reason?

The drivers constantly having to balance between conserving and taking a bit more life out of the battery to race a rival is what makes these races so entertaining, as is all the "gimmicks" such as Attack Mode and Fan Boost looking good at first, but then you realise they use up more power more quickly so again need a strategic mind to work out when or indeed if it best to use them

It's what makes Formula E racing so exciting, as evidenced yesterday!

Brilliant race, proper motor sport with overtaking and drama from start to finish

Formula E really is the most exciting single seater catagory on the planet atm..

I'm well aware of this but this can't deny other "valencia" may happen again despite engineers and drivers best efforts, I just don't agree with that. At example current F1 cars de facto is a fuel consumaption formula, each car can have max 110kg of fuel inside the car and it's up to the driver manage it during the race, despite this (unless done intentionally) is basically virtually impossible to remain out of fuel during the race or finish the race with 0.1-0.3% of fuel inside the car...
I just think there is no need to make races 45m+1extra lap long just to see who can finish the race with no power left in battery... it's an opinion of mine at least.

Pretty sure Valencia was down to the guy in race control who does the maths to work out how much energy to take off the teams during a SC, I'd be very doubtful if it happened again

The cars aren’t actually running out of power at the end of the race. They run out of what they are allowed to use. So it’s not actually the race length (40, 45 or 45+1 lap) being too long that is a problem, if there is a problem. Perhaps a little tweak to the calculation when there is a SC, especially one near the end?

Anyway, Monaco was good fun. There were some sneaky, some daring and some just quality moves out there.
