Vandoorne hard on Formula E: 'It all came across quite amateurish'

Stoffel Vandoorne looked set to win the second Formula E race in London but was forced to retire after a collision with Oliver Rowland and action by Lucas di Grassi. The driver was very angry with his fellow drivers afterwards.

The former Formula 1 driver actually had a good feeling during the race. "I feel pretty s**t, to be honest. This just hurts a lot," he stated in conversation with Motorsport.com. "I was driving in the lead of the race and had everything under control. Then there was that thing with Di Grassi, which was a bit confusing at first. But that honestly didn't affect what happened next, the incident with Ollie (Rowland, ed.)."

Vandoorne argues that Formula E certainly didn't advertise itself. "It all came across quite amateurish. There were pieces of bodywork everywhere on the track. It looked like we were driving bumper cars."
