Reactions to a Formula E exam week during Valencia:

 

Roger Griffiths (Team principal BMW i Andretti Motorsport):

“It is apparently good to finish a exam week with Maximilian Günther’s
fastest time during a tip of a timing list. However, that does not
meant an awful lot. We were also clever here final year, though were then
incompetent to put that into use over a whole season. For us as a
team, it was most some-more critical to optimise a inner processes
and work together even improved and some-more efficiently. we consider we have
taken a good step brazen in that regard. That fact creates me more
assured about a deteriorate brazen than a path times do.”

 

Alexander Sims (#27 BMW iFE.20):

“The exam unequivocally helped us. We were means to get a lot of laps under
a belt and, in doing so, accumulate profitable information that a engineers
will now analyse delicately over a entrance weeks. We were also pretty
quick. That might generally be good news, though we know that a Valencia
circuit is not indispensably standard of Formula E. we had a tiny strike on
Friday, when we was too quick entering a equivocation and skidded off,
however, that was not a vital problem. Thanks to my team, who repaired
a automobile quickly. All in all, we conduct home in certain spirits.”

 

Maximilian Günther (#28 BMW iFE.20):

“The exam week went good for us. The concentration was clearly on training as
most as possible, looking brazen to a entrance season. For us, it was
essentially about stability a growth of a automobile and team
processes during a circuit. That took tip priority. Lap times were a
delegate matter. we am gratified that we were means to do an awful lot of
laps and try some things out. That was really critical for me. we felt
really gentle in a automobile all week. we can frequency wait for a season
to get started in November.”
