He really isn’t the best driver outside of Formula 1.
True, in his second year in F2, so far he hasn't even matched the results of a rookie like Pourchaire who has just turned 18.
Pourchaire has been impressive - but it’s Piastri who should be taking all the headlines…

He's made it onto the Official formula one youtube channel.

Let's hope that's the closest he gets to F1. I was particularly irritated by Rosanna Tennant, commentating on Sky for the F2 support race at Silverstone, who kept referring to Ticktum as "home hero Dan Ticktum", proving again that commentators know absolutely fk all about their subject matter.

Clearly employed as a token female in F1. Did someone seriously look at the long line of ex F1 drivers they could have employed instead and thought "No, the best person for the job with the best knowledge is Rosanna Tennant"

Reading some of her online bios is equally as nauseating. It’s ashame as if they really wanted a female presenter there’s a few on TicTok that come across well and have a proper interest in the sport.

Just seen he's signed for NIO in FE... I wonder how long that will last ?

Formula E just seems to be the graveyard for those drivers who never quite made it to Formula 1, or scraped into a hopeless F1 team and were chewed up and spat out.

Formula E - the series no-one cares about, except that we know the teams have budgets to pay six-figure salaries to second-rate drivers. Maybe even third-rate drivers.

He's probably better than 3 drivers who are in F1 next year, comparing at the point when they entered F1.

Not sure but really looking forward to it. I quite enjoy FE but having him there is a bonus from an entertainment and comedy value angle.

Given how often FE manage to make contact with each other, walls etc, box office potential.
