“Looking brazen to Season 5, a new epoch dawns for BMW and Formula E
after a finish of this season. Our preparations for entering a race
array as a works group with a new Gen2 automobile are still in full swing.
we am unequivocally looking brazen to saying a automobile in exam drives in the
entrance months, and during a lass competition in December. As ‘Official
Vehicle Partner’, BMW has partnered with Formula E given its
inception, and has always believed in a success of a competition series.
Now we are holding a subsequent step together.”

 

António Félix da Costa (#28 Andretti
ATEC-003):
“Firstly, we would like to apologize to Luca
Filippi. The collision in today’s competition was my fault. we took my feet off
a accelerator really early to save appetite and didn’t bank on his
attack. Looking behind during a season, we have to contend that we have learned
a lot. From a BMW Motorsport perspective, that was really the
categorical idea in credentials for a works entrance for Season 5. We had a
few races in that we were quick and could have finished most further
adult a field, though overall, we didn’t have a full package for
bringing home a formula that, as a racing driver, we would like to
have achieved.”

 

Stéphane Sarrazin (#27 Andretti ATEC-003):
“The
races were prolonged this weekend. Unfortunately, it wasn’t utterly enough
for points. On a soppy lane on Sunday we saw that we are quick though our
appetite government isn’t fit adequate to keep adult with a best for
a whole competition distance.”
