Episode #371: 2022 Formula E Jakarta ePrix Report

Mitch “Brah” Evans puts himself back in the race as we ask deeper questions about Formula E leaning away from its roots. Welcome back, to Motorsport101…

Formula E headed off to a brand new round as their 2022 season continued, as Jakarta became a well-liked and enjoyable round on the calendar.

We talk MITCCCCCCCCCH BRAAAAAAAAAAAH as he claimed a narrow, but frenetic third win of the season over Jean-Eric Vergne and Edo Mortara with just under a second covering the trio over the line. We break down how he won, and how dramatic it was.

We also get into an interesting debate over the track itself, and how it… wasn’t really a “Street Circuit” compared to most on the Formula E calendar. There’s no doubt Indonesia was well received by drivers like Nyck De Vries, Stoffel Vandoorne and others, but we the hosts got into a debate about whether its a good thing the series is turning away from its roots.

We also talk Nyck De Vries probably being out of title contention after a puncture ended his race at the hands of Andre Lotterer (again). Should Mercs be telling Nyck to step aside to support Stoffel’s campaign? We discuss that and more on Motorsport101!
