Quotes ahead of the Puebla E-Prix:

 

Roger Griffiths (Team Principal BMW i Andretti Motorsport):

“We head into the second half of the season on the back of some good results. The points we scored last time out mean we currently lie fifth in the Team competition. We now want to close the gap to third and fourth place. The Puebla circuit is new to us all and is a mix of an oval circuit and a tight infield.

 Slipstream will definitely play an important role on the long start/finish straight and the home straight. We are hoping to benefit from the efficiency of the BMW i drivetrain at what is generally a fast circuit.”

 

Jake Dennis (#27 BMW iFE.21):

“We kept working hard during the six-week break. I spent almost the entire time in Germany and did some work in the BMW Motorsport simulator to prepare as well as possible for the second half of the season.

The fact that nobody knows the circuit in Puebla is good for me, as it means that as a rookie I am in the same position as all the other drivers. The last time that happened was at Valencia – and I won there. Hopefully we can get a similarly good result in Puebla.”

 

Maximilian Günther (#28 BMW iFE.21):

“Puebla is a special challenge. The track is very flowing, has a lot of undulations and will produce some great Formula E racing.

The long full-throttle sections on the start/finish straight, when we head back onto the oval, will make the race very interesting. I am really pleased that the second half of the season is getting underway in Mexico.”
