“The initial home competition for BMW i Andretti Motorsport this weekend is
something unequivocally special for us. As ‘Official Vehicle Partner’, BMW i
has been closely compared with Formula E from Season 1. BMW i has
also been pretension partner of a BMW i Berlin E-Prix given 2018. We now
come to Tempelhof Airport as a racing group for a initial time – and
with a sights set resolutely on converting a good intensity of the
BMW iFE.18 into good results. So far, we have finished good in a debut
deteriorate and, notwithstanding a few highs and lows, we are still in a thick of
a competition for a Drivers’ pretension with António Félix da Costa. The whole
group is dynamic to put on a good uncover for a German fans in Berlin.”

“The home competition for a group and BMW is another new circuit for me. I
have prepared good in a simulator and have a sense that the
lane is distant some-more atmospheric than a typical, slight travel circuits we
mostly expostulate on in Formula E. Overtaking seems to be possible, which
will make a racing some-more interesting, quite for a fans. The
surprising competition format, with a use sessions on Friday and then
true into subordinate on a Saturday, represents a new challenge.
However, we am unequivocally looking brazen to it.”

“I am unequivocally looking brazen to a home competition for BMW i Andretti
Motorsport in Berlin. Our package is unequivocally good and we trust we should
do good on a circuit during Tempelhof Airport. Unfortunately, we have
not had a formula we hoped for recently, though we am still in a race
for a Drivers’ title. Hopefully we can rebound behind strongly in
Berlin and measure some critical points.”
