That was a hell of a weekend. More action and drama and excitement than a lot of series deliver in a year.

Sucks for Abt though

Montreal ePrix has fallen through

wonder where they'll put it instead, it's a double header round. They've already had to move the Sao Paulo round to Punta Del Este.

The Formula E website is so confusing. It's almost as if they don't want people to watch their races.

gently caress, that's even prettier than the concept, other than the halo replacing the canopy

Holy poo poo that looks nice.

With the rear wing split like that, would that help with following the car in front closely?

We'd have to wait and see what kind of downforce is actually being produced but that generally hasn't been an issue with FE cars because they're not generally producing enough of a wake or being downforce dependant to make that an issue.

Not yet but the halo on that car supposedly can light up so we're getting there.

A couple extra things about the new car. For starters it'll be using the new batteries that will last the entire race, so no more car swapping. It'll also have more power up to 250kw in qualifying mode, roughly 335bhp which Di Grassi says could put their top speed over 180mph with how light and low downforce they're supposed to be.

I'm not sure if I love those, hate those, or both. They look exactly as overblown as I'd expect, like someone asked a 14-year-old kid to draw what he thought the coolest race car would look like.

Hey there's a race today in Santiago. Practice is live on Youtube and qualifying is at 1445GMT then the race itself at 1830GMT. Both live on Spike in the UK and delayed on various Fox Sports things in the US. It's a rare chicane-free track.

Its not a bad track, looks to be some decent braking zones for passing

Bumpy as hell (which is awesome)

No Radios, they couldn't tell Lotterer to pull his poo poo in.

I remember Pippa Mann raging when Jorda got put on that commission since she's basically someone who'll happily just tell the FIA bosses exactly what they want to hear.

Anyway, the new car is an actual real thing now that moves.

She was raging at this latest nonsense too.

I don't rate Pippa very highly as a racing driver but unlike Jorda I rate her as BEING a racing driver.
