Reactions after race 1 of the Diriyah E-Prix Roger Griffiths (Team Principal BMW i Andretti Motorsport, Team Ranking: 5th place): “Unfortunately, united states did not manage to turn the fantastic performance of Alexander Sims into a strong race result in qualifying. At first we could control the field, but the longer the race lasted, the more problems we had to keep up with the speed of our pursuers. This has thrown back United Stateslater. Maximilian drove a clever race on his debut for our team, even though he was struggling with vehicle balance. Unfortunately, then the penalty cost him many positions. Our job now is to pull our lessons from today's race and make it better tomorrow. We showed what speed in the BMW iFE. plugged. Now it is important to implement it in the race as well. “Display

Alexander Sims (# BMW iFE. “Of course, if you start from pole-plight, you're hoping for more than eighth place. In the beginning, things were going pretty well, but relatively quickly I realized that I had to use too much energy to keep my pursuers at bay. Apparently we did not quite have the speed of our competitors at the distance. Unfortunately, we were a bit too conservative in the last few laps in energy management, and I lost a couple of places in the last lap by a hard but fair Nyck de Vries maneuver. All in all, not a perfect ticket, which we now have to analyze tomorrow with a view to the race. “Maximilian Günther (# BMW iFE. : 0, driver rating: I lope mercurial throughout the race in the points and fought for positions. Unfortunately, then came the penalty that cost me a place in the high-ten. But things like that happen in racing – and luckily it's just one of many races this season. From this we will now learn our lessons and try to improve united states tomorrow. ”
