Why no Formula E?

I believe that only programmes that are broadcast through the "regular" channels appear in the GiP cache.

To pick up others such as these and "box sets" you should use the series pid and the recursive option.

Just searched for "formula" and get_iplayer finds one match:

INFO: Indexing tv programmes (concurrent)
INFO: Added 20 tv programmes to cache
1184: Formula E: 2021 - Round Three - Rome, BBC Two, m000v5hn
INFO: 1 matching programmes

Searching for "formula" on the iPlayer website finds eight matches. All
of them except for the above one were only broadcast via the BBC sport
webpage. Maybe that is why they don't show up?
