Formula E: Seven manufacturers in Gen3 era on board
Manufacturers change partner teams
So far the future. Formula E is still at the beginning of the current season. Race numbers four and five will be held in Rome at the weekend. ProSieben will broadcast it on Saturday and Sunday at 3 p.m.
Rome is the home race of Antonio Giovinazzi, the Formula E newcomer from Formula 1. The Italian is currently last. On the one hand, his Dragon team is not competitive, on the other hand, Giovinazzi shows how difficult it is to switch from the premier class to the electric formula.
Formula 1 stars not competitive in Formula E
In any case, Giovinazzi was shocked after the first laps: “I expected the car to feel very different from my Formula 1 car and that’s how it happened. I felt a bit lost on the first day.” The 28-year-old clarifies: “Everything was a bit different – the brake management, there is hardly any downforce and no sound. I’ve never felt anything like it before in my career.”
Two drivers who have never been in Formula 1 are currently at the top of the table: Edoardo Mortara (Venturi-Mercedes/43 points) and defending champion Nyck de Vries (Mercedes/38).
