Quotes forward of a Paris E-Prix:

Roger Griffiths (Team Principal BMW i Andretti
Motorsport):
“Paris is already a permanent tie on
a Formula E competition calendar. We are here for a fourth time, so we
know a circuit flattering well. The lane is slight and winding, with
only one straight. As a rule, that creates it quite formidable to
pass with a good grid position even some-more important. Our concentration is
on anticipating a ideal hold turn on a sleazy track, and so to
grasp a idea of finishing in a points with both cars.”

Alexander Sims (#27 BMW iFE.18):
“The circuit in
Paris has some singular corners, and a lane is comparatively brief and
really bumpy. we have gained some initial knowledge in a simulator and
am intrigued to see how it feels on a genuine track. We have analysed
a competition in Rome delicately and hopefully drawn a right conclusions.”

António Félix da Costa (#28 BMW iFE.18):
“After
being undone with a outcome in Rome, we arrive in Paris determined
to do good again. we feel really good in a BMW iFE.18 and have fond
memories of a circuit. Last year, we done it by to Super Pole
here. we wish it works out as good this year.”
