Quotes forward of a Julius Baer Swiss E-Prix:

 

Roger Griffiths (Team Principal BMW i Andretti Motorsport):

“Bern as a venue is uncharted domain for any Formula E team. In
a initial instance, this poses organisational and logistical
hurdles for us given we need to get to grips with a new
environment. From a racing viewpoint we have some make-believe data,
though will usually unequivocally be means to tell what is in store once we get
there. This is good news for Alexander Sims, given as a Formula E
rookie this time he will be starting a competition weekend on accurately the
same basement as his gifted rivals. We wish that a lane will suit
us and that we can finish a European deteriorate on a high.”

 

Alexander Sims (#27 BMW iFE.18):

“It feels good to be entrance to Bern with a tip 10 outcome in Berlin
underneath my belt. The circuit there will be new for everybody, so we are
all starting underneath a same conditions. The idea contingency be to get used
to a conditions as fast as probable and to have a high learning
curve. At initial glance, a lane looks unequivocally parsimonious and has copiousness of
climbs and descents. It is unequivocally opposite to a circuit in Berlin. I
am vehement about a plea as Formula E provides new surprises
from competition to race.”

 

António Félix da Costa (#28 BMW iFE.18):

“Bern is a final competition before a grand deteriorate culmination in New York.
Looking during a championship, it is generally critical to record a
good outcome there and hopefully be concerned in a conflict for a win.
The circuit looks unequivocally sparkling though we will usually get a genuine feeling
for it when we are there, as nothing of us have driven in Bern before.
Switzerland was a good horde final year, so we am unequivocally looking forward
to a race.”
