a final dual races. Last week

BMW Motorsport continued a growth of a new BMW iFE.18
with a exam during Calafat (ESP).


The Situation

After a clever start to a season, fortunes have incited for
MSAD Andretti Formula E in a final dual events. Neither Félix da
Costa nor Blomqvist scored points in Punta del Este (URU) or Rome
(ITA). Bad fitness and incidents have curtailed a team’s swell in
new races, though both drivers will know that top-10 formula are
within strech on Parisian streets this weekend. Meanwhile BMW works
motorist Bruno Spengler (CAN) finished a extensive testing
programme with a new BMW iFE.18 final week in Calafat in preparation
for deteriorate 5.

The Expectations


Tom Blomqvist, MSAD Andretti Formula E: “I’m
utterly vehement to be racing in Paris. It’s another iconic city center
that we have a pleasure of racing around. Luckily, we haven’t had
prolonged to wait given final time out in Rome. I’m feeling certain ahead
of a race, we have prepared good and we like a demeanour of a circuit.
It’s looks formidable though severe so I’m looking brazen to seeing
what a MSAD Andretti group can achieve.“


António Félix da Costa, MSAD Andretti Formula E:
“It’s good to finally not have a large mangle between races. The
MSAD Andretti group is going behind to racing true after Rome
that is good. We had unequivocally good race-pace in Rome, we went with a
unequivocally assertive plan and we done adult a lot of places. We are
perplexing to redeem ourselves after a detrimental conditions we had in pit
line in Rome. We should have been in a points during that competition so we are
looking brazen to removing behind on a track. We are apparently aiming
for points though we consider we even have intensity to quarrel for a tip five
so I’m looking brazen to racing during this extraordinary lane and city.”


The Circuit

Paris’s streets played horde to stirring races in seasons 2 and 3,
and a elementary recipe of complicated braking zones and good view make it
a good Formula E venue. Racing around Les Invalides complex,
drivers will knowledge one of a toughest marks of a season,
ultra-bumpy and intensely narrow. Overtaking is possible, but
incidents and hit are unchanging occurrences. Turns 3 and 10,
entrance after straights, are among a best flitting opportunities, but
usually for dauntless competitors.
