That jump is a bit mental

As Franchitti just put it: "Yes, it's a little bit childish, but who doesn't love a good jump"

I understand why the drivers in Group 1 moan but the comentary team has it right, this is the most fair way given the circimstance.

Yup. No need to make it easy for those already on top.

Also, I think my Eurosport Player stream is a bit behind.

Basically, if you've got a car setup that works well on both a colder, less green track at the start of qualifying and on a more evolved circuit, you're going to do well in the championship. This qualifying promotes good performance in all conditions rather than a purely optimal one which requires everything to go your way.

But it could worsen

Don't have any particular allegiances in Formula E but there's a lesson for Jaguar as to why you shouldn't celebrate too early. Muppets :rotfl: :rotfl:

Yeah, Jaguar should really have known better. Celebrating before a result is in the bag is so often a recipe for disaster in motorsport - and not least in Formula e!

I mean, the cars looks & sounds stunning in real life. 

And great to see the steering input of the drivers, fighting in the corners. 

Go find a seat for one of the upcoming eprix, worth it!  :smoking:

Could be...

Sector 1 is currently pretty damp, the rest of the track is getting humid too. 

- 1 hour & 20 minutes to race start

And there are lightnings around Rome

Looks like the BBC aren't carrying this on Red Button because of some other boring sport... but it does appear to be YouTube in the UK for this one at least

If you can get Quest Tv, they have the pictures but no working mics.
