Man, that testing field is almost good enough to stand on its own as a series.  More combined talent than the F2 field!   ;)

This was the last I heard about what was going to happen to them:

 

It’s understood the cars, which are leased to the teams, will largely be acquired by a combination of teams, partners, as well as Agag himself.

 

The Formula E boss revealed that he will be taking possession of the chassis that Lucas di Grassi took to victory in the championship’s inaugural round in Beijing in 2014.

I distinctly remember at least one of her two tests last season at Diriyah and Marrakesh (or perhaps even both of them) being plagued by issues with the NIO car, loosing a fair bit of running time and when the car was working it wasn't on the pace.

 

Testing with Jaguar, a team in recent race winning form, is a much more exciting prospect.

And nothing against James Calado, but I would dearly love to see how she gets on if they were to put her in the race seat for a round or 2...

I actually quite like that NIO 333 livery. Last year's gradient wasn't doing it for me, the darker blue addition and sharper lines between colours is much nicer IMO.

My main take away from that is that Alexander Sims is a pure gentleman of the highest order.

Looks like trouble in the Mahindra and Techeetah camps!

Also i reiterate my point about the turn one corner being a little too tight.. ruined Lotterer and Mueller's races.

Indeed! I mean it's easy to forget that they are high on adrenaline and we don't get to see the debrief chats in the garage. It's possible they calm down and sort it but... oof, not ideal situations at all. 

 

Think I agree about T1. Hopefully they'll go back and keep improving the track as they did this year...

The more they dim the lights, the less bad it looks.  Still don't like the new car kit.

After a whole grill full fo copy paste Season 6 liveries onto the Gen2 EVO we have Porsche doing something whacky, I repeat, Porsche have done something whacky!

​(ok so it's just a black car with red trim and the phrase '#STAYHUNGRY' draped straight over the top but eh, it's not the S6 livery so it counts!)

Nice to see something other than a reused S6 livery!

 

In my opinion the current Porsche colours are too much of a copy paste of their standard motorsport livery onto the FE car and not enough of a unique identity for me. But then maybe they wanted it to look like a legitimate Porsche entry first.
