The ABB FIA Formula E Championship is in Berlin (GER) this weekend for round ten of the season

Jens Marquardt (BMW Group Motorsport Director):

“The first home race for BMW i Andretti Motorsport this weekend is something very special for us. As ‘Official Vehicle Partner’, BMW i has been closely associated with Formula E from Season 1. BMW i has also been title partner of the BMW i Berlin E-Prix since 2018. We now come to Tempelhof Airport as a racing team for the first time – and with our sights set firmly on converting the great potential of the BMW iFE.18 into good results. So far, we have done well in our debut season and, despite a few highs and lows, we are still in the thick of the race for the Drivers’ title with António Félix da Costa. The whole team is determined to put on a good show for the German fans in Berlin.”

Alexander Sims (#27 BMW iFE.18):

“The home race for our team and BMW is another new circuit for me. I have prepared well in the simulator and have the impression that the track is far more spacious than the typical, narrow street circuits we often drive on in Formula E. Overtaking seems to be possible, which will make the racing more interesting, particularly for the fans. The unusual race format, with the practice sessions on Friday and then straight into qualifying on the Saturday, represents a new challenge. However, I am really looking forward to it.”

António Félix da Costa (#28 BMW iFE.18):

“I am really looking forward to the home race for BMW i Andretti Motorsport in Berlin. Our package is very good and I believe we should do well on the circuit at Tempelhof Airport. Unfortunately, we have not had the results we hoped for recently, but I am still in the race for the Drivers’ title. Hopefully we can bounce back strongly in Berlin and score some important points.”
