Tough weekend during Tempelhof for MS Amlin Andretti.

Posted on 11. Jun, 2017 by in BMW Canada

Qualifying: Saturday 10th June

It was a unsatisfactory subordinate eventuality for a MS Amlin Andretti
drivers. Both were drawn in a initial subordinate group, an immediate
waste on a unwashed track. Neither had a eventuality to be happy
about, with Robin Frijns handling 17th position – 1:09.630
– and António Félix da Costa carrying an even harder struggle, ending
20th on a grid after an blunder on his fastest path – 1:11.147.

 

The Race: Saturday 10th June

The initial foe of a Berlin double header brought few positives for
possibly Frijns or Félix da Costa. With a span struggling for outright
gait on a lane not good matched to a Andretti ATEC-002, a team
motionless to play on efficiency. Both drivers staid into a stroke to
save appetite and done a after pitstop than a competition. Frijns
managed to make it to path 23 of 44, while Félix da Costa pitted on the
24th. However, a additional appetite saved was not adequate to
make swell for a second partial of a race. The MS Amlin Andretti
span crossed a line 17th and 18th, Félix da
Costa bettering his teammate on a final lap. Post-race
suspension for a aspirant meant any gained a place in the
final standings: 16th and 17th positions.

 

Qualifying: Sunday 11th June

Sunday’s subordinate eventuality was a tiny alleviation over Saturday’s.
Robin Frijns, from subordinate organisation four, was means to take
14th on a grid, with António Félix da Costa managing
17th from a third group. Frijns’ time was 1:08.583, while
his Portuguese teammate lapped in 1:09.085.

 

The Race: Sunday 11th June

The second foe of a weekend, during 46 laps dual longer than a first,
was agonising for a MS Amlin Andretti team. In a pell-mell start, both
drivers gained places, with Félix da Costa creation it to
12th, and Frijns 13th position. Crucially, the
Portuguese was means to reason his place and say his appetite reserves
until his 23rd path pitstop. He emerged 11th and,
notwithstanding several incidents in a second half of a event, he would
finish there, frustratingly only outward a points-paying positions.
Frijns was incompetent to reason on to 13th, dropping places and
eventually pitting in 18th position, where he would finish
a race.

 

The Reactions

 

António Félix da Costa, MS Amlin Andretti: “Sunday’s
foe was a large alleviation over Saturday’s, though we don’t come here to
be happy with 11th place. The good thing is that no one in
a group is happy to be outward a points. We have a aspiration to
pierce forwards – we know a stipulations though relocating to New York we can
concentration on a improvements we done between a dual races this weekend.”

 

Robin Frijns, MS Amlin Andretti: “We knew before we
came here that this would be a tough weekend, and that was a case.
Saturday was a tough day, and Sunday was a tough day too – though
António did a improved job. we can’t figure out because he had a corner in
a second race, so I’m going to check a information and concentration forward for
New York.”

 

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”.

 

The Outlook

FIA Formula E heads opposite a Atlantic for rounds 9 and 10 of the
series. New York promises to be a stirring environment for an ePrix, with
a foe holding place in Brooklyn, in steer of a Statue of Liberty
and Brooklyn Bridge. The New York ePrix is also a first
FIA-sanctioned eventuality ever hold in New York City.
