Quotes forward of a Santiago E-Prix:

 

Roger Griffiths (Team Principal BMW i Andretti Motorsport):

“The year finished on an apparent certain note with a win in Diriyah
for Alexander and so a whole organisation is penetrating to uncover that this was not
usually a one off and is looking for some-more success as we conduct to South
America. While we are returning to a same venue as final season, the
line itself has undergone many changes; from a comprehensive
resurfacing to residence a tarmac issues from final year, to a change
in a blueprint to accommodate a new array lane, all of that will mean
some-more hurdles for a engineering organisation and a drivers alike. While
everybody enjoyed a well-deserved break, it didn’t meant that a work
stopped after a final round. Not usually did we all take a prolonged hard
demeanour during what led to a success in Diriyah, we also looked during areas we
could urge on as we entirely design a foe to come back
clever in a New Year. Alexander is on a hurl with his stick position
method and will be looking to uncover his gait once more, although
carrying to validate in organisation 1 will be a special plea for him. Max
will be anticipating to put a beating of a final foe behind him
and be aiming for a clever finish in his possess right.”

 

Alexander Sims (#27 BMW iFE.20):

“The mangle after Diriyah did me a lot of good and we feel refreshed
going into a foe in Santiago and prepared for a challenge. Obviously
we am not streamer to Santiago meditative that we will automatically get
stick position and a win again, though we am desirous adequate to set my
sights on removing another win. The BMW i Andretti Motorsport Team was
clever in both Diriyah and Santiago in Season 5. we wish we conduct the
same again this time. All of a drivers will have to internalise the
new line blueprint first. The training in a simulator has already
helped me a lot with this. The fact that we will have to contest in
subordinate organisation 1 for a initial time is a challenge, though we wish that
we will cope good and will be means to get another clever result.”

 

Maximilian Günther (#28 BMW iFE.20):

“After a prolonged mangle we have some-more than usually recharged my batteries,
and we can frequency wait to get behind on a track. we had a lot of fun in
Santiago final deteriorate and we wish that a new blueprint of a line will
be usually as cold to expostulate on. we was really gratified with my opening in
a second foe in Diriyah in particular. My gait was promising, even
if we didn’t collect adult any points in a end. This gives us all even
some-more proclivity to be even improved in Santiago. The chemistry in the
organisation is brilliant. we feel really during home.”
