Formula E: Due to bad weather, two workouts are canceledDecember 16, 2018
Today in Saudi Arabia, the first stage of the electricity series starts, but the rain over Riyadh tore off the morning program.
The participants of Formula E failed this morning to go to the track. Due to heavy rainfall both trainings had to be canceled. And at first they canceled the first one, then extended the second one, but nature did not take pity on the participants.
Eventually, the cars drove off behind the safety car, then Edoardo Mortara got into an accident, and red flags followed. In addition, they canceled the qualification of the race support stage – Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy.
According to recent data, the qualification still starts, but in a new format: in each session there will be two groups consisting of 11 riders. Each of the groups will spend 15 minutes on the highway, the superpool was canceled.
It should be noted that this year new electric cars are used, they have not been tested before on the Riyadh highway. The pilots of the teams proposed to limit the power of the engines and qualifications, given the unexpected weather conditions, causing, as you can see, complications on the track.
Meanwhile, the Swedish team PSRX declined to participate in the next World RX Championship season.
