BMW i and Formula E’s common tour got underway with a unequivocally first
competition in Beijing behind in 2014, definition we have come full round with
a lapse as a BMW i Andretti Motorsport works team. Unfortunately,
we weren’t means to make a best of a opportunities during a last
eventuality in Hong Kong. We’ve analysed a reasons and drawn our
conclusions. In Sanya we wish to make improved use of a BMW i
drivetrain’s strengths once again and build on a tip performances
that have already brought us some shining formula this season. Our
idea is still to move home as many points as probable with a BMW iFE.18.”

looking brazen to relocating on to Sanya. We analysed in fact because we
weren’t as rival as common in Hong Kong and we are assured that
we will have a clever package again for a future. We don’t know all
that many about a area in that we will be pushing in China, though we
are doing tests in a simulator, so we’ll be good prepared. We can’t
wait to get racing again and to collect adult some well-needed points for
a altogether standings.”

to be comparatively quick and endless during initial glance, with long

to make use of a package’s strengths in Hong Kong, we wish that we
will lapse to a common form in Sanya.”

starting from scratch. I’ve already finished a few laps of a track
