London called, and Formula E answered in what is being considered as one of the best events the all-electric world championship has put on in recent years.
Sam Smith is joined on The Race Formula E Podcast this week by guest host Jack Nicholls and Andretti’s Roger Griffiths, who with driver Jake Dennis was the toast of the UK’s capital last weekend after a dominant victory and a close second-place finish to Sunday winner Lucas di Grassi.
In a packed show, the trio discuss the diminishing title fight after Stoffel Vandoorne again capitalised on reliability misfortune for Mitch Evans and incident-packed races for both Edoardo Mortara and Jean-Eric Vergne.
There were plenty of afters, too, as Mercedes got embroiled in an aborted choreography plan, while Sebastien Buemi and Pascal Wehrlein almost came to blows in the pitlane and had to be separated by Griffiths’ commercial director and occasional The Race columnist, Jim Wright.
In addition to the London action there is also a look ahead to the Seoul season finale plus Griffiths’ reflections on Andretti’s soon-to-end BMW journey, which has roots stretching all the way back to the start of Formula E.
