Long Beach ePrix preview
The fifth race of the Formula E season was in the warmly sunkissed Miami. The energy was wonderful and there was three newcomers Tonio Luizzi, Scott Speed and Loic Duval, who all did wonderful. Duval was even close to getting into the top 10.
Sam Bird was right up front until he lost energy on lap 20 and fell back. He finished the race in spot 8. Bird is an exciting racer with a lot of will, but this time had pushed just a little too hard.
Scott Speed, who’s name suits oh so well, is the only American of the bunch and has shown a really impressive effort. There’s no doubt he could win race 6 with Miami under his belt as experience, Speed has that much more reason to do it right this time.
Prost, who ended up taking home first, later exclaimed between panting of excitement that he was taken by surprise at how strongly Scott Speed kept on his tail.
what does this mean for Long Beach?
Speed can very well take this one with just a little tweaking to his previous effort. He is definitely proving to be a great threat to the rest of the drivers. Prost will have to prove that he can keep consistent and stay at the top. He’s proven his ability to keep high scores per race but can he continue to win?
With the excitement of the last race blending with the anticipation of the next, we’re sure in for a good ride.
