In the end, Rosberg’s driver duo Johan Kristofferson and Molly Taylor took fourth place to clinch the first Extreme E Championship. Reason: In the event of a tie, the higher number of wins decides. RXR was successful three times, X44 “only” once.
It got really exciting again in the final, when Rosberg X Racing fell further and further behind in fourth place, while Team Hamilton took the lead. “I would have liked to push more, but it wasn’t worth the risk,” explains Molly Taylor. “To win the title is a wonderful feeling!”
Rosberg is happy: “The title is a huge relief. I’m proud of the great job the team has done. ”Born in Wiesbaden, he also won the Formula 1 world championship title in 2016 against his team-mate at the time, Hamilton.
After all: in the Hamilton camp you have nothing to reproach yourself for. “We won everything that could be won this weekend. That was our goal and our only chance to win the championship. The fact that we lose the title with a single win is bittersweet. “
Alone: On site, Hamilton did not have to sit and watch the defeat. The Formula 1 runner-up stayed away from the event on military grounds on the Jurassic coast in Dorset. Nico Rosberg, on the other hand, celebrated on site with a lot of champagne on the podium.
On 18./19. February 2022, season 2 continues in Saudi Arabia.
