NEW YORK, NEW YORK
Screenshot-2022-07-14-at-09-24-40.png
So here we are, entering the final furlong of Gen2’s swan-song season. It all comes down to the next four weeks and three double headers in New York, London and Seoul to find our champion. 

This year we’re seeing the championship battle really focus to a point. Some have been saying that it’s Formula E’s best season yet, and there’s good grounds to say that. If you have been watching everything so far, you’ll know that the new qualifying format has been producing much more consistent front runners, which has in turn led to cleaner and more calculated racing. We’re down to four favourites for the title now across four teams, and if the last few races are anything to go by… these four are going to have to be absolutely on top of their game to take the title.
 
If you haven’t been watching….where have you been?! Ah well, you are here now!

The Title Contenders
mortara-3-4.png
Eduardo Mortara, Venturi (139 points, 3 wins, 2 podiums) 
Ice-cool, Eduardo is once again looking strong for a title with some exceedingly well managed races. Last year, a start-grid collision with a stationary Mitch Evans cost him his chance…
vergne-3-4.png
Jean-Eric Vergne, DS Techeetah (128 points, 0 wins, 5 podiums)
Winless so far this season, double-champ JEV is proving that consistency is essential. A points scorer in every race, he’s a real candidate.
vandoorne-3-4.png
Stoffel Vandoorne, Mercedes EQ (125 points, 1 win, 4 podiums)
Slated to be JEV’s teammate for DS next year, Vandoorne will surely want to go into that pairing with a title under his belt. A disastrous qualifying session at the last race dropped him to third in the title race but be under no illusions over his chances.
 
evans-3-4.png
Mitch Evans, Jaguar TCS (124 points, 3 wins, 2 podiums)
Evans has been loyal to Jaguar since day one, during which the team has developed from occasional points scorers to genuine title contenders. This team will not be holding back on celebrations if they end up tasting ultimate victory.

 
The Venue 
The Brooklyn Street Circuit around the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal will be the venue for this weekend’s double header. First used in 2017, it was the site of Jean-Era Vergne’s two title victories in 2018 and 2019. It’s future may be in doubt beyond this season, but whatever happens it’s made some motorsport history.

For the first time, the New York ePrix will have an American driver taking part in Oliver Askew for his former IndyLights employers Andretti. 

 

Not the first American driver to compete an ePrix on US soil, since Scott Speed did four races in FE's inaugural season including races at both Miami and Long Beach. 

 

Askew is the fourth American-licensed driver to take part overall, with the other two not yet mentioned being Mathew Brabham (via duel nationality) and a one-off appearance for Marco Andretti. Though I routinely forget that the latter one ever happened.

Great OP mate! :up:

Friday practice rules, should become a standard in FE.

Having all the sessions in one day it's cool from one side, but on the other side it's more difficult to follow all the action.

Rooting for Askew & Andretti this weekend :up:.
Askew in particular had a really good race in Marrakesh, can the local hero take a podium spot?

The battle for the championship should get really intense this weekend, should be a good one

Yeah I’m warming to multi-day formats. I’m still lukewarm on double headers specifically (prefer one headline winner per weekend), but I wonder what innovation could yet come in Gen3 and beyond.

Sprint races at 350kW power and a longer ePrix at 300kW? Dunno, might appeal to some. Support events? Would be good, but always hard to make financially viable for a World Championship.

Shouldn't that be four weeks instead, if I'm correct, as the last race will be on August 14th?

And VDO has in addition to his 1 win, 4 podiums, if I'm not mistaken.

Errrr yeah! My head was still in immediate post-Marrakesh timeframe for some reason.

Also correct. I'm not sure which one I missed when I read the results table. 

 

Thank you  :up:

"[Formula E CEO Jamie Reigle] told SBJ that the cruise terminal in Brooklyn where FE holds its event at is about to go through development plans that would make it harder to race there in the upcoming years, so he is looking at other sites in N.Y. to possibly fill the hole. He also is interested in possibly adding a race in L.A., Dallas or Miami, saying that he has been talking with owners of pro sports teams about possibly competing around their venues, much like F1 did with the Dolphins’ Hard Rock Stadium."

I was thinking that it's sort of interesting that the main title contenders are all from different teams. We haven't really seen two drivers from the same team able to stay in the points leading group, and it's not like the leading group's team-mates are drivers of questionable ability. We're talking Da Costa, Di Grassi, De Vries and Bird... there's plenty of championships and wins between those drivers to warrant championship expectations.

Good.  Poor excuse for a 'New York City' venue and if they are forced out and have to look for somewhere else (better) than great.

Governor's Island?  Is this a hint?

 

But this shot shows what a poor venue the race is currently using.

Would be great to see them coming back to downtown Miami or Long Beach.

 

They could easely do the Indycar layout with the Gen 3 cars and look pretty good on it.

NYC's sector 3 is underrated.

One of the most spectacular sections in the calendar, with the fast chicane & the very fast long left hander before the S/F line.
