Quotes brazen of a Diriyah E-Prix:

 

Roger Griffiths (Team Principal BMW i Andretti Motorsport):

“As a group heads behind to a venue of a entrance win in Season 5,
and following a successful Valencia pre-season test, there is
apparently some fad brazen of a competition weekend in Diriyah.
However, we know that all of a competitors have been operative hard
and therefore we don’t blink a plea brazen of us. Both
Alexander and Maximilian have been unequivocally focused on their preparations
for a initial races of a season. With a new sporting regulations
impacting how a appetite is used during a competition incident, we should see
a pierce behind to some-more appetite singular racing. This should showcase the
efficiencies of a BMW drivetrain. The double header format of the
opening eventuality always creates it somewhat some-more challenging, though it is a
unequivocally gifted organisation during BMW i Andretti Motorsport that is well
prepared for this challenge.”

 

Alexander Sims (#27 BMW iFE.20):

“I’m blissful that a watchful for a season-opener is over now. After a
lot of complete contrast we feel good prepared for Diriyah. Last
deteriorate we got off to a good start there, so let’s wish for a good
weekend. The lane in Diriyah is a reduction of dual different
characters. The initial territory reminds me a bit of a towering section
in Macau: unequivocally perfectionist corners, unequivocally slight streets. Then we have
a second partial that is flattering far-reaching and true with harder braking
zones. That’s a unequivocally good combination.”

 

Maximilian Günther (#28 BMW iFE.20):

“I’m unequivocally looking brazen to contesting my initial races for BMW i
Andretti Motorsport after all a preparation. We finished a test
programme but any vital problems and should be good positioned. We
will usually see where we unequivocally mount during a deteriorate opener. we really
suffer a lane in Diriyah. It goes adult and down, and there are a lot
of quick turns. The pivotal to a quick path time is in a circuitous middle
sector. There is a good event to pass on a behind straight.”
