How technical troubles detracted from Extreme E's Sardinia encounter

Extreme E has provided thrilling plot lines in its inaugural season, but numerous mechanical failures on the ODYSSEY 21 have detracted from the closely fought battles across various terrains. Sardinia's Island X-Prix set up a championship finale, but also underlined what Spark must do to fix the car for next season

Alejandro Agag is a cool customer; someone who finds time to answer difficult questions with composure and a smile. And for all the flak aimed at Extreme E and Formula E – the two disruptive electric championships he has co-founded – for their perceived popular vote gimmicks in ‘grid play’ and ‘fanboost’, he values meritocratic sporting success.

He is also a negotiator, and cares greatly about how his motorsport series appear on TV. Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg and Jenson Button likely wouldn’t be fielding teams alongside Chip Ganassi in Extreme E if it wasn’t for the Spaniard’s central role and persuasion. And he wants his audience to enjoy the best possible show.
