Coming under investigation after the race, the 22 year-old driver was handed a 24 second time penalty, which relegated him down the order. Moving up to the podium was Mercedes' Stoffel Vandoorne, who clinched his second podium of the race weekend, rounding off a sensational debut performance for new manufacturer works squad Mercedes-Benz EQ team.

Following a chaotic season opener in Saudi Arabia, BMW i Andretti Motorsport's Max Guenther lost his podium finish after the FIA found him in breach of the regulations for overtaking Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler's Lucas di Grassi while the BMW i Safety Car was out.
Nyck de Vries also got a penalty for overtaking during the SC.

Turvey also penalised for overusing energy.

For a top level series they do a crap job actually informing people of the result. Stewards slower than F1.

Actual order:

Is it just me or are the cars kinda hard to tell apart with more than half the field having red/white/black liveries

rules?


you can't activate the attack mode under Saftey car. what happens if you finish a race under saftey car and have't used them all up. last year it was a requirement to use them

Excellent and enlightening long read by Hazel Southwell of InsideElectric about covering FormulaE in Riyadh as a woman, FE generally and Riyadh generally and the politics/ethics of FE going to Saudi Arabia...it covers a lot of ground but is worth it and far more entertaining than I've made it sound

Some interesting details in the FIA chassis tender for gen3 (starting 2022/23) CxS target is 0.6, the average for F1 is more like 1.35, CzS target it 1.5-2.0 where F1 is more like 5.5, crazy numbers, very slippery cars.

Possibly moving to 20" wheels just as F1 joins the 21 century with their 18s :lol: . Front axle energy recovery up to 250kW, rear axle increasing to 350kW max, total power 350kW (~470bhp) in quali, 300kW in race. Battery weight dropping to 284kg from 385kg but slightly less capacity 51kWh not 54kWh, but they want to include fast charge to add 4kW in a 30s pitstop.

Interesting, but if my maths are correct (and assuming you meant 4kWh), that´s almost 10C charging... Not even high C Lipo batteries can take that

Any idea about what battery technology are they talking about?

Not very happy about the idea, adding pit-stops and waiting 30 seconds to charge not even a 8% of the battery... #-o I´d cut race lenght an 8% and keep it without any pit-stop

As long as it is the min time regulated and not the amount or energy added it could be good. If ever there was a road associated requirement to develop, its rapid charging.
