The end is near for the first Extreme E season. From December 18-19, the Jurassic X Prix will be held in Dorset, UK, where Rosberg X Racing (RXR) will be one of the main protagonists at the closing of the championship, so knowing what to expect from them on the military track will be more than interesting.
With Johan Kristoffersson and Molly Taylor behind the wheel, RXR, the team led by Formula 1 champion Nico Rosberg, has all in favor to make history and write their name on the records of Extreme E, as the first champions of the category that promises to give a twist to motorsport for the future.
Undoubtedly, both drivers have a little more margin to risk compared to their closest pursuer for the title, X44. In this way, Kristoffersson and Taylor will certainly not take unnecessary actions that would jeopardize the integrity of the ODYSSEY 21, which has been known to crack under demanding shocks.
With 129 points and a 16-point lead over X44, Rosberg X Racing has a lot going for it to qualify for the semifinals and then the final. At that stage, they will try to bring the car to the finish line on top two positions to secure the championship. Throughout the inaugural Extreme E campaign, RXR has been known for being sharp at key moments.
Hypothetically, Taylor would go out on the first lap to secure a good field and pave the way for his teammate, Kristoffersson, to take the reins of the wheel and execute another flawless lap that would bring peace of mind to the team members located at the control center, as well as the Rosberg X Racing fans.
