The latest episode of The Race Formula E podcast looks ahead to the forthcoming eighth season of Formula E with new Mercedes team manager Gary Paffett, as his squad gets set to defend its hard-earned 2021 titles.
Along with The Race’s Sam Smith and Andrew van de Burgt, Paffett addresses the key points of the new qualifying format, who will be in the running for the title, and why consistency will be even more important in 2022.
The trio go through the teams and identify likely winners, midfielders, and no hopers.
Additionally, the trio of Formula E rookies are assessed, as is last week’s news of a possible race in India in 2023 and Jaguar’s potentially key signing of former Venturi driver Norman Nato.
There are predictions – and predilections – aplenty, including tips for race winners, champions, and the naughty boys of the paddock.
