Showdown of the first Extreme E championship in 2021. The final in southern England has a clear favorite: the Rosberg X Racing team with drivers Johan Kristoffersson and Molly Taylor.
But it’s an unequal duel. Team Rosberg has won three out of four races so far. Hamilton’s team around rally record world champion Loeb with its seven world championship titles only scores with consistency: once third, twice fourth, and most recently once fifth.
Rosberg wants manufacturers
Alone: winning the title would only be the first step for team boss Nico Rosberg. He wants the support of a car manufacturer as early as 2022. “We are holding talks on this. A German manufacturer would of course be interesting, ”says Rosberg.
The XPrix on Sunday – transferred to Pro7 MAXX from 1 p.m. – is called Jurassic XPrix. Because you drive on the Atlantic coast of southern England – the Jura coast. The venue is a military base in Dorset, southern England.
