    I would rather have a race circuit event for Formula E than potentially dangerous street circuits. Heidfeld just about caught the pole in China. Organisers rating image over safety imho.
    Rather than having one driving swapping cars - how about a relay, one driver doing half the race and getting out and putting a sticker on another driver already strapped in the second car.

    Is the 2nd Formula E race on today ?

    Great drive by Sam Bird and a decent entertaining race again.

    Alex Brundle seems to have the gift of the gab just like his father!

    Some good overtakes and generally a nice entertainment considering it was a street "circuit". Cars are quite unstable due to the minimal downforce and reaching the finish itself is an achievement.

    Looked some of the race in replay. Oh good old Trulli memories came back - great qualifying, train in the race and then DNF from a good position. He hasn't been racing for a long time, guess hence why he made that clumsy blocking move. Can't remember him making such mistakes in F1, but takes a few races to take off rust I guess.

    Well, just watched the highlights and i must say, i am hating these street circuits
    first and foremost, the sightlines are poor, especially for the tv cameras.
    2nd, it simply looks lifeless with all that concrete empty city.
    3rd, in both races, the venuses have been just dull

    It would have been great if they ran in sepang, and shanghai, and i hope that they will abandon these gimmicky street circuits for proper tracks in the near future
    For one, it will probably reduce the amount of farcical incidents that imo do not improve the show

    to me Formula-E is fighting for legitimacy and the best way to do it is to have cars on proper tracks which allows folks to feel like they are an actual racing series.
    you can't argue with results

    Wow what a great race to watch! Freakin' Trulli
    I thought I had see n my last Trulli Train, I am honored. Theses guys have to deal with really tight, green courses, that seem a little slippery. It was a shame what Legge did to Cerruti!
    Bird was exceptional, and my dotr!

    I can't get past the lack of a good engine. Although the cars looked OK and Dario was a color analyst for the race that I saw on NBC I can't see this catching on as a form of racing,particularly in Europe. One surprise is the number of well know F1 names in there. I see Katherine Legge is also with a team.
    Are these cars expensive to run?
