Quotes brazen of a New York City E-Prix:

 

Roger Griffiths (Team Principal BMW i Andretti Motorsport):

“The final rounds of a Season 5 championship, hosted in New York
meant effectively dual some-more home races for a BMW i Andretti Motorsport
group after a BMW i Berlin E-Prix. Set opposite a backdrop of
Manhattan Island, a Brooklyn lane has an sparkling multiple of
technical sections, aspect changes and flitting opportunities. The
plea of a double-header means incompatible schedules on any race
day, along with a plea of scheming a cars for a following
day’s competition all putting additional final on mechanics and engineers
alike. Despite a beating of a final race, a group remains
entirely focused on achieving a best formula probable for both group and
drivers’ championships and has been operative tough given Bern to
maximize a intensity from a BMW iFE.18 package.”

 

Alexander Sims (#27 BMW iFE.18):

“I’m unequivocally looking brazen to my initial races in New York. It somehow
feels surreal to be racing right in front of a Manhattan skyline.
Having a double-header means there are dual opportunities to achieve
good formula and finish a deteriorate on a high. The lane blueprint looks
cool. Our competition gait in Berlin and Bern was good so I’m confident for
a entrance weekend.”

 

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

“Coming to a final dual races of a deteriorate in New York there are a
lot of points adult for grabs. There is still a lot for us to grasp in
this championship with dual good results. That’s because I’m highly
encouraged to have a purify and clever weekend. Everybody in a team
deserves to finish a deteriorate on a high. They all have worked unequivocally hard.”
