44: Interview: Mahindra Racing’s Jerome d’Ambrosio On 2019-20 Formula E


This episode is a Formula 1 + Formula E special! We have a special guest on our show – former Formula 1 driver and now racing for Mahindra in Formula E, Jerome d’Ambrosio.
Formula E
– We talk to Mahindra Racing’s Jerome d’Ambrosio about the 2019-20 Formula E, their preparations, learnings from the pre-season test and more
– Mahindra Racing’s biggest challenge has been to remain competitive throughout the entire season. DAM explains how they plan to address this trend for the upcoming season.
– We discuss the importance of the simulator and the simulator driver in Formula E
– How do teams-drivers cope with the condensed single-day format of Formula E?
– Are Formula E drivers expected to live a sustainable life?
Formula 1
– Re-living the 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix – something we will keep doing for the time to come. We’re not over the Gasly vs. Hamilton drag race – how did he actually win that?
– Mclaren missed being on the actual podium, so we spend almost all our Formula 1 talk time in this episode celebrating their return to the podium
– We actually saw Sainz overtake a car on the live broadcast feed – Mclaren speaking to Formula 1 regarding their broadcast visibility did seem to work.
– We miss Fernando Alonso, but thank you Mclaren for sticking to the Norris-Sainz pairing. Will the Netflix-F1 show dedicate a special episode to their bromance?
