Dennis takes control as Kiwis collide - Rome EPrix reaction with Sacha Fenestraz
1:00:07Sam Smith and Andrew van de Burgt are joined by Nissan’s Sacha Fenestraz to review a spectacular Rome EPrix that saw several twists in the hitherto close 2023 title battle. Jake Dennis emerged as the clear favourite after winning the second race on Sunday, with his joy accelerated by the fact his two most direct championship competitors collided on the second lap. Also discussed is the catastrophic accident triggered by Sam Bird losing control of his Jaguar and the near misses that ensued, particularly for Antonio Felix da Costa, Edoardo Mortara and Bird himself. The knock-on effect of that shunt also included some remarkable stories on how new monocoques were allocated throughout the paddock. Fenestraz describes his pride in Nissan achieving its best result in almost two years, while the Franco-Argentinian also mulls over a promising yet ultimately difficult weekend in which his excellent Saturday qualifying essentially counted for nothing come the race.
