Formula E CEO, Jeff Dodds, to donate $250,000 to charity if Verstappen DOESN’T win

23 Feb 2024
  • Who Will Secure the Championship and Choose the Charity?

TNT Sports has aired an interview between Jeff Dodds, CEO of Formula E, and Jermaine Jenas, Formula E’s Lead Presenter and former pro footballer, in which the former makes a huge statement on how predictable Formula 1 has become… a statement worth $250,000.

Wager of the Year

Wager of the Year

At the end of the interview, when discussing wider motorsport predictions, Jeff makes the wager of the year, stating: “If any one of the other 19 drivers win it, we’ll give a quarter of a million dollars to the charity of choice of the driver that does win it”

The proclamation aims to highlight the unpredictability of Formula E - especially when compared to F1 - and make a substantial donation to a charitable cause. As you may know, in Formula E, every season (with the exception of Jean-Éric Vergne’s double crown) a different driver has won the World Championship. So far, Season 10 has proven no different, with three different drivers, all from different teams being crowned champions of the first three races.

Maserati GT2 will be on the starting grid at the Paul Ricard circuit in the opening round of the 2024 Fanatec GT2 European Series Powered by Pirelli, scheduled for 5 and 6 April at the French circuit. Three cars – two run by LP Racing, and one by the TFT Racing team– are preparing to take part in the new season of the European championship reserved for GT2 class cars. The Trident is liming up on the track for the first time since it took part in the final race of the 2023 season, also in France.

Last October, the Maserati GT2, driven by Leonardo Gorini and Luca Pirri, standard-bearers of LP Racing - made its official debut in the series, bringing home an extraordinary result for a first outing: the Italian team, the first to take Maserati back to GT racing after a long absence from the scene, stood out straight away by securing pole position and a podium placing.
