Stopover in Munich: Sims and Félix da Costa revisit BMW i developers.

Munich. Before they set off on their tour to Mexico City
(MEX) for turn 4 of a ABB FIA Formula E Championship, a two
BMW i Andretti Motorsport drivers paid a revisit to a rather special
place on Monday. At a cunning centre for electric drivetrains,
António Félix da Costa (POR) and Alexander Sims (GBR)

met a engineers who grown and fabricated a ReD01
drivetrain for a BMW iFE.18. It was time for a dual drivers to
contend appreciate you.


“I am really gratified that a event arose to fit this revisit in
before a Mexico City E-Prix,” pronounced Félix da Costa. “The BMW i
experts here were by my side when we won on a BMW iFE.18’s debut.
These guys are a ones who creates us go discerning and win races – and it’s
good to come here and see where it all happens. We drivers cannot
appreciate them adequate for building such a illusory drivetrain.” Sims
said: “I find a record behind a drivetrain fascinating and
take my shawl off to all a employees here for a pursuit finished – without
them we wouldn’t be means to suffer such success in Formula E. It feels
illusory to give it my all for them in any competition to appreciate them for
their good work with good results.”


The dual drivers met their colleagues, who also rise the
drivetrains for a BMW i prolongation models, during an autograph
event during Taunusstraße in Munich (GER). Nicolai Martin, Head of
Development Electric Drivetrains, and BMW Motorsport Director Jens
Marquardt had formerly welcomed a dual drivers and reviewed the
milestones achieved on a Formula E project. Martin said: “It is
simply illusory to see that we are so rival in Formula E with
a BMW i drivetrain for racing use and a automobile components developed
by BMW Motorsport. António’s win during a season-opener inspired
everybody in a group and showed us that we during BMW i can also set the
benchmark in an sourroundings geared totally towards performance.
That is something we are all really unapproachable of.”


Marquardt added: “The cunning centre for electric drivetrains is
a violence heart of a record lab for iNEXT and future
generations of BMW i models. After a initial few races, one thing is
already clear, a colleagues here have responded brilliantly to the
high-performance plea of motorsport. The believe they benefit in
a Formula E plan flows directly into a growth of BMW i
prolongation expostulate trains. It is precisely this kind of technology
send that creates Formula E so profitable to us.”


The subsequent rival tour for a BMW iFE.18 is on Saturday in
Mexico City. Félix da Costa travels to Mexico in third place in the
Drivers’ Championship with 28 points. Sims is now tenth with 18
points to his name.
