crafty gait in both use sessions. Unfortunately he got held up
a small bit on his drifting subordinate lap, that cost him one and a
half tenths and a place in a Super Pole shootout. Still we had solid
start positions with both drivers. We hung in there in a race, made
crafty use of energy, tyres and Attack Mode. Both drivers finished good
passes when they indispensable to and shielded good when they indispensable to. The

bad start and mislaid some positions. After that we came behind crafty and
a automobile behaved unequivocally well. At a finish we didn’t utterly have a pace
anymore to quarrel for a lectern to be honest. Being a rookie entering
a final competition of a deteriorate only 4 points behind a personality sounds
unequivocally good. To be satisfactory it’s only incredible. I’m so unapproachable if what we
have finished here during BMW i Andretti Motorsport. I’ll only suffer a race
