F1 drivers in Formula E

I'm going to the Formula E race in Long Beach next month. I just peeked at the driver line-up. I knew there was a bunch of ex-F1 drivers, but I didn't realize there were so many. Out of the 20 drivers (2 drivers per team), HALF drove in F1. They are:

  • Jean-Eric Vergne
  • Lucas di Grassi
  • Nelson Piquet
  • Jerome D'Ambrosio
  • Sebastien Buemi
  • Karun Chandhok
  • Bruno Senna
  • Jarno Trulli
  • Nick Heidfeld
  • Jaime Alguersuari

Subaru XT6 review by Motorweek

Motorweek's YouTube channel is killing it with its Retro Reviews.

These old Motorweek episodes take me back to a time when this and Car & Driver were the only ways I could learn about new cars.

Craig Singhaus was a fixture on the show. This Subaru clip shows him comically trying to get into the backseat. He's definitely nutty.

And I am definitely biased, but my high school years (1988-92) had the greatest selection of interesting cars, ever.
