“The second foe here in London was many some-more eventful. Everyone was
a small some-more regressive yesterday though it was many some-more aggressive
today. In a end, we finished with both cars in a points. That’s
what we came here for and that is what helps us in a championship.
Maximilian came home in sixth place; Jake finished ninth. It was a
good opening from Jake, who worked his approach adult from P17 after a
rather unsatisfactory subordinate session. Maximilian reached
Superpole again. We are now fifth in a organisation standings and we had a
good time here in London. Formula E organized a illusory event. Now
we are streamer into a final dual rounds of a universe championship in
Berlin. Let’s see what we can achieve.”

foe result: 9th place, points: 81, motorist standings: 4th place):
“Overall, we can be unequivocally happy with a weekend. We scored points
twice and had a win to celebrate. My automobile behaved unequivocally good from FP1
to a final foe on Sunday. We were superfast in any session. I
don’t consider that we were ever outward a tip five, detached from during
subordinate of course. We changed adult from 17th to seventh place and then
we got a drive-through penalty, so that was a bit of a shame. But
overall, it was a good weekend. Now we am looking brazen to Berlin.”
Maximilian Günther (#28 BMW iFE.21, starting position: 6th
place, foe result: 6th place, points: 62, motorist standings: 15th place):
“All in all, it was a plain day. we felt good in my automobile during free
use and built a good substructure for qualifying. we can also be
unequivocally gratified with organisation qualifying. we put in a good path in Superpole,
nonetheless a initial drops of sleet had started to fall. We were only two
tenths of a second divided from stick position, that shows how tighten it
was. We were banking on racing in a rain, though unfortunately that
didn’t occur so a gait was not utterly ideal. we also had a feeling
that we could have used conflict mode improved to finish aloft up, though in
motorsport there’s no indicate meditative about could have, would have. We
gave it all and scored some good points.”
