Reactions to a exam in Valencia.

 

Jens Marquardt (BMW Motorsport Director):

“The Formula E exam during Valencia was a unequivocally critical eventuality for
all a teams to take batch as they prepared for a start of the
deteriorate in mid-December – and we am unequivocally happy with a approach we presented
ourselves with a BMW iFE.18 and a BMW i Andretti Motorsport Team.
Good speed, a high grade of trustworthiness and fit processes in
a group gives us a unequivocally good basement on that to build. The new BMW i
drivetrain, ReD01, ran like clockwork on all 3 exam days. Our two
drivers, Alexander Sims and António Félix da Costa, finished a good
impression. We know that Spain did not indispensably exhibit a full
change of energy within a margin for Season Five, however in motor
racing it is always good to conduct to a season-opener on a behind of
good formula during a dress rehearsal.”

 

Roger Griffiths (Team Principal, BMW i Andretti Motorsport):

“Throughout a days here, we worked
by a pre-conceived exam programme, we weren’t chasing path times,
though we found we were means to furnish a path time when it was necessary.
The cars have behaved remarkably well, with a difference of one minor
off-track occurrence we’ve had probably no issues during all. Both drivers
have unequivocally worked good together, they have gradually improved
their opening and bargain of a new car. In particular,
Alexander has come to a group as a relations rookie and has really
demonstrated his talent level. There’s still a lot of work to do to
prepared for Riyadh. We have to go behind and demeanour during all a data,
know what we did and afterwards get prepared to go for competition one.
Hopefully we can continue a success we’ve had here in Valencia in
a championship season.”

 

Alexander Sims (BMW i Andretti Motorsport, #27 BMW iFE.18):

“All in all it was a unequivocally certain pre-season exam during Valencia for
BMW i Andretti Motorsport. we was a bit wavering of how to decider things
after a initial eventuality on Tuesday though we have left by all the
opposite conditions, quite with a sleet currently and a fairly
immature lane this afternoon. Obviously, a lane itself is still
unrepresentative though but we have been rival in all conditions.”

 

António Félix da Costa (BMW i Andretti Motorsport, #28 BMW iFE.18):

“I consider generally we are unequivocally happy. Although this lane is not at
all deputy of a marks we will see in a Formula E season,
it is still certain to be competitive. we consider it’s a good morale
boost for everybody during BMW i Andretti Motorsport. There is a lot of
work to be finished before a initial race. I’m going home unequivocally vehement and
looking brazen to a initial event.”
