Newly crowned Formula E world champion Nyck de Vries talks extensively to Andrew van de Burgt and Sam Smith about his 2021 title campaign in the latest episode of The Race Formula E Podcast.
From a dominant display in the first round at Diriyah to the fraught finale in Berlin, the Mercedes driver goes over the key moments of a thrilling season as he added a Formula E title to his 2019 F2 success.
De Vries animatedly defends the Valencia E-Prix victory in which he capitalised while the majority of his opposition got compromised by an energy deduction.
The Dutch ace also discusses driving standards particularly in the final race in Berlin where he was also aiming to ensure the team was able to scoop the manufacturers’ title.
The ongoing question of whether he will get an F1 chance is also touched upon as the world waits to see if he will get to defend his hard-won title in 2022.
