A return to Monaco for a race that last year, we called the 2021 Motorsport101 Race of the Year. It was a much anticipated affair, but in the end, Stoffel Season returned to the streets as he took an impressive win over Jaguar’s Mitch Evans and DS’s Jean-Eric Vergne.
We talk about some of the excellent gamesmanship tactics of Stoffel’s win, as well as the expense of Porsche’s Pascal Wehrlein, who was set to win until a low-voltage battery failure shut his car off from the lead. Safe to say, Cam didn’t take that one too well.
…We also discuss Dre’s pre-season Jaguar title pick. Mitch Evans has gone 1st, 1st, 2nd + Pole in his last three races, as he remains 9 points off the lead of the title. So why is the mood at Jaguar so glum? We dissect some of Sam Bird’s struggles as well.
We also talk some of the Silly Season news, as it turns out with Mercedes leaving the sport, Stoffel’s going with them, heading up a new DS Penske collab with Jean-Eric Vergne, with Antonio Felix Da Costa heading to Porsche to partner Pascal! We break down the moves, as well as King’s shock at how it’s all come together!
And finally, we talk about the release of the Gen 3 car, and try and fail to make jokes comparing the new cars to the Wipeout video game series. But still, 350 kilowatts of power and a 200+ mph top speed has to sound cool, right?
All that in a loaded Formula E version of Motorsport101!
