The 2019 Formula 1 season may be just over a week away but Formula E’s 2019 season is already four races in and this weekend there’s another race from Hong Kong. As drivers no longer have to stop mid-way through a race, undo their seatbelts and jump into a second car to complete the second half of the contest, I’m starting to warm to the sport.
Most importantly I’ve a few friends involved in it at the business end and they have no concept of odds, betting or value. Good untainted judges then! My chief guy there has given me three names: Di Grassi, Frijins and Buemi who he believes could come to the fore by the end of the 13 race championship.
Whilst I cannot give you the reasoning behind his beliefs, it's enough for me to swerve the five other drivers ahead of them in the market (at 9/2 or less).
