You can never have enough information.

Another upside is they get to try out their next in line for a seat as Toto calls him.

Williams gets money from Mercedes for Russell and money from whatever pay driver they take on.

I can see the cruel world of Motorsport unfolding now.

Russell gets given the Merc. Well in the points. Engine failure with 4 laps to go.
Latifi up from 11th to 10th for Williams first points in donkeys.

Heartbreak for Russell haha

They said defending champion, not any champion. Rosberg retired after winning.

VW announced it’s pulling out of all motorsport. It had previously said it’s pulling out of internal combustion engine sports to focus on electric powered cars. But yesterday Audi announced it’s leaving FE and today VE made the broader announcement.

It might be limited to other motorsports but I think this is part of a trend (which includes Honda pulling out of F1). Nobody has sold cars in the last year. Ot must be hard to justify motorsport programmes when there’s probably a global recession coming.

Audi had been rumoured to quit Formula E this year but when the new gen car was postponed they opted for one more year. There time in FE was limited once Porsche joined the grid. Volkswagen didn't need them competing with eachother so Audi's departure was planned before Covid.
