Posted on 07. Jun, 2017 by in BMW Canada

Munich. The initial Formula E Championship eventuality with dual races
on one weekend will take place in Berlin (GER) on 10th
and 11th June. The Berlin ePrix will see BMW works driver
António Félix da Costa (POR) and Robin Frijns (NED) in a German
collateral for a eighth and ninth races of a series. They will be
giving their all to record a points finish in a cars from a MS
Amlin Andretti Team upheld by BMW i.

The Challenge

The German turn of a Formula E deteriorate earnings to a deteriorate one
venue, Tempelhof airport, for deteriorate three. MS Amlin Andretti will
arrive with certainty gleaned from a clever Paris competition for Frijns,
who warranted points for his sixth-place finish in France. Though Félix
da Costa was not so propitious on a Parisian streets, he also looks for a
good competition in Berlin, with copiousness of clever racecraft shown in the
deteriorate so far. Both drivers will be aiming to measure top-10 finishes
once again. The Berlin ePrix will offer a opposite plea to the
final two, in Monaco (MON) and Paris, with narrow, tarmac streets
transposed by wide, rough concrete.

The Team

MS Amlin Andretti will competition a ATEC-002 in Season 3, with Félix da
Costa and Frijns in a dual entries – Frijns in series 27 and Felix da
Costa in series 28. BMW will yield imagination and support to the
American group as it runs a possess powertrain for a initial time in
Season 3, carrying run a customary Formula E record in a first
dual seasons. Fans can opinion to give their favourite motorist a ‘FanBoost’
– an additional appetite allocation, accessible in a second half of a race
– online. The 3 drivers with a many votes accept an additional 100KJ
of energy, that can boost appetite by adult to 30KW. There are dual methods:
voting on fanboost.fiaformulae.com, or by regulating a hashtag #FanBoost,
and #AntonioFelixdaCosta or #RobinFrijns, on Twitter.

The Expectations

António Félix da Costa, MS Amlin Andretti: “Berlin is
apparently an critical competition for me. As a BMW works driver, this is
kind of a home competition in that aspect so it would be unequivocally good to get a
good result. we missed this competition final year due to a strife in schedule
though we are behind to where we were in deteriorate one during Tempelhof Airport.
The lane is a small bit opposite though we will proceed it with an
open mind. With this being a initial double-header of a season,
there are a lot of points adult for grabs and we will do a best to
maximize a opportunity.”

Robin Frijns, MS Amlin Andretti: “After a good race
in Paris, Berlin is next. Formula E raced here during Season 1 though I
wasn’t racing Formula E behind afterwards so it’s going to be a new experience
for me. we unequivocally don’t know what to pattern and it will be interesting
to competition here for a initial time during a double-header. The weekend is
going to be unequivocally bustling with dual races. Our aim is to be in a points
with both cars, in both races and keep on doing what we did in Paris.”

The City

Berlin, brazen meditative and childish in spirit, is a ideal fit for
Formula E. It’s a centre of renouned enlightenment and trends, mostly leading
fashion, pattern and song meditative around a world. It’s a real
melting pot of tellurian culture, with people from all around a world
contributing to a singular atmosphere. The German collateral has also
hosted a Olympic games, a FIFA World Cup final and a globally
famous marathon. Record-setting as a marathon runners are, Formula E
stays a fastest competition to be hold in a city. The venue itself,
Tempelhof Airport, is famous for personification a executive partial in a 1948-49
Berlin airlift, and a ride aeroplane is located on a track’s
infield as a relic to this bid and a airport’s history.

The Circuit

FIA Formula E will lapse to Tempelhof Airport for a initial time
given 2015. The impression of a lane is utterly opposite to any other
on a calendar. Like a rest of a circuits, it is a rough affair;
however, it is a petrify surface, reduce in hold than a tarmac seen
during other venues, and is also wider than many of a other locations on
a calendar. The blueprint is mostly new, with dual prolonged prosaic out
sections damaged adult with a tight, technical initial zone and two
hairpins – good overtaking opportunities – in a final sector. The
categorical ‘straight’ is in fact a long, quick left handed sweep, holding in
a bend of a airport’s structure.

The BMW i Vehicle Fleet

For Season 3, BMW i stays a “Official Vehicle Partner” for the
FIA Formula E Championship. The BMW i8 (fuel expenditure combined: 2.1
l/100 km / 134.5 mpg imp; CO2 emissions combined: 49 g/km) will
continue as a high-performance, fit Safety Car in Formula E.
The same goes for a BMW i3 (energy expenditure combined: 12.9 kWh;
CO2 emissions combined: 0 g/km), that is a “Medical Car” and “Race
Director Car” and for a BMW X5 xDrive40e (fuel expenditure combined:
3.4–3.3 l/100 km / 83.1–85.6 mpg imp; CO2 emissions combined: 78–77
g/km; total formed on a EU exam cycle, might change depending on the
tyre format specified), that functions as a “Rescue Car” or
“Extrication Car”.
