Quotes forward of a BMW i Berlin E-Prix:
Roger Griffiths (Team Principal BMW i Andretti Motorsport):
“Berlin will be a unequivocally special competition weekend for a whole team; not
usually is it a finish of a championship and there is all to play for,
though it is also a final dual rounds for a bureau partnership
between BMW i and Andretti Formula E. A partnership that came together
rigourously in Season 5, it started with a stick position and a win, and
hopefully we can tighten out together in a identical manner. we am sure
there will be many churned emotions come a finish of a weekend. The
championship points are so close, roughly anything can occur between
Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. The singular inlet of a track
aspect means that tyre government will be key. The continue also looks
to be utterly prohibited and that should fit a potency of a BMW i drivetrain.”
Jake Dennis (#27 BMW iFE.21):
“It feels like it was usually yesterday that we competition my initial Formula
E competition in Diriyah. We’ve come a prolonged approach given then, won dual races in
my rookie deteriorate and are right in a center of a conflict for the
universe championship. I’m unequivocally vehement for Berlin and will give it my
all to make use of a movement and expostulate for a title. But we can
already be unequivocally unapproachable of what we have achieved as a group this season.”
Maximilian Günther (#28 BMW iFE.21):
“I’m super vehement for a deteriorate culmination in Berlin. Two lane layouts
in dual days is a genuine challenge, and one that we have prepared well
for. We are still right there in a conflict for a pretension in both
championships, and a home fans during a lane make a atmosphere even
some-more special. We will give it all we’ve got once again for the
final dual races for BMW as a works group in Formula E.”
