Three of the four Formula E races this year have been crazy good fun, especially yesterday’s in Mexico. There is so much going on that the highlights video leaves out all kinds of incidents and stories that, at the time, seemed exciting but in hindsight were nothing compared to the buildup to the last lap.
In this case a red flag brought everyone back to the pits, and the teams thought the race would be shorter than it ended up being, so everyone pushed just a little too hard compared to the energy they actually had left in the batteries.
Not included in the highlights: The owner of Formula E sitting next to the team boss of the team he thought was going to win, but then who didn’t win, and not knowing how to react. Console the guy, or be super happy knowing the ending of the race show that your series has more excitement in one lap than most racing series have in an entire race.
