Paddock Diary: Formula E Marrakech day one | Paddock Diary

Max Verstappen isn’t the only Formula 1 paddock regular at this weekend’s Formula E race.
I depart home for Brussels Airport for a 10am flight to Marrakesh, venue for the second Formula E round of the 2018-19 season.
Strange to relate, but over Berber dinner – tender tagine-cooked chicken/lamb, complemented by Moroccan sweets – I catch-up with colleague Hazel Southwell, whom I hadn’t formally met as we cover different series and live in different countries.
I ’m amazed at the number of familiar faces about the paddock – racing folk who swapped the pressures and non-stop lifestyle in F1 for the more relaxed and open friendliness of the series.
