Nyck de Vries and Mercedes looked like Formula E world champions on day one of the 2021 season, but six months and an 18-way title fight later, it took some last-minute drama at Berlin for them to clinch the crown.
Sam Smith and Andrew van de Burgt delve into how the championship was decided in our season finale episode of The Race Formula E Podcast.
As well as the shocks of the Tempelhof races themselves, they discuss rumours linking de Vries to a Formula 1 chance and whether such a move would be good or bad for FE.
They also look at why it was de Vries who emerged as Mercedes’ champion rather than his more experienced team-mate Stoffel Vandoorne.
And the bombshell of Mercedes’ looming Formula E exit and the chance of the team being rescued under new ownership is also analysed.
