Three lessons we schooled – Geox Rome E-Prix.

Posted on 18. Apr, 2019 by in BMW Canada

Munich. The BMW i Andretti Motorsport group is contesting its
initial deteriorate in a ABB FIA Formula E Championship. The engineers
benefit some-more knowledge with any competition weekend and incorporate their
new commentary in a serve growth of a BMW iFE.18 and its
preparations for a entrance races. In a array “Three lessons
learned”, we benefaction 3 of a commentary done by BMW i Andretti
Motorsport after any race. This time: a Geox Rome E-Prix (ITA).

 

1. Overtaking is apropos increasingly difficult, even on
wider tracks.

It comes as no warn that overtaking is formidable on a street
circuits that horde a Formula E races. However, we saw in Rome that,
even on a comparatively far-reaching track, it is still usually probable to pass
other cars by holding a large risk – even with ATTACK MODE and FANBOOST.
That is serve acknowledgment of only how hugely critical qualifying
is. A good grid position stays pivotal to a good competition outcome and will
sojourn a concentration on during a entrance races in Paris (FRA) and Monaco (MON).

 

2. Energy government was even some-more critical than expected.

The potency of a Formula E expostulate record – one of the
strengths of a BMW i powertrain – valid to be even some-more important
in Rome than a BMW i Andretti Motorsport engineers had expected.
Virtually all a cars were down to only one per cent of energy
remaining on a final path of a race. That led to a leaders
negligence down on a prior path and monitoring a remaining race
time to equivocate carrying to finish another lap. As such, energy
government was an critical cause in any success.

 

3. Heavy aria on a Formula E cars.

In terms of robustness, a circuit in Rome is a biggest challenge
of a deteriorate for Formula E cars. As likely by a BMW i Andretti
Motorsport engineers, a lane was really disproportionate with lots of bumps,
creation it really perfectionist for a framework and energy unit. The cars
indeed left a belligerent over one crest. While Alexander Sims (GBR)
struggled with technical issues in qualifying, a BMW iFE.18 of
António Félix da Costa (POR) withstood a stresses.
