The X44 team led by Lewis Hamilton topped the time in qualifying in Senegal. 

Right now, Rosberg X Racing is number 1 in the Extreme E series standings with 35 points.

The X44 drivers, Cristina Gutierrez and Sebastian Loeb took on the world’s toughest rally in Lac Rose. Showing speed, X44 drove along the beachfront course alternating for each session based on the recent rule change. The Spark Odyssey 21 is running spectacularly.

Gutierrez is a remarkable rally driver who doubles as a dentist. What a combination. She’s the first Spanish female driver to finish the Dakar Rally. Making history is in her DNA. Loeb is a French professional rally and rallycross driver with extensive experience in racing from 1999 to the present day.

Gutierrez and Loeb set the fastest opening session time with 10m47.289s. Gutierrez held off Kyle Leduc and Sara Price from the Segi TV Chip Ganassi Racing team.

Rosberg X Racing won in Saudi Arabia with Johan Kristoffersson and Molly Taylor. Today with two laps, the duo managed 11:02:310.

Kristoffersson is a Swedish racing driver, son of former racing driver, Tommy Kristoffersson. In 2012, Johan won the Scandinavian Touring Car Championship and Porsche Carerra Cup Scandinavia. Kristoffersson took FIA World Rallycross Championship titles in 2017, 2018, and 2020. Taylor is an Australian racing driver and 2016, championship winner. She’s the daughter of rally driver Mark Taylor and four-time Australian rally champion co-driver, Coral Taylor.

Hamilton and Rosberg selected well. It’s going to be an exciting season as the racing rivals compete for the championship win. Extreme E was founded by Alejandro Agag and former driver Gil de Ferran in 2018.  Time to drive and fly across this global racing voyage. Tomorrow’s semi-final is 11:00-12:30. The race is 15:00-17:00.
