The BMW I Andretti Motorsports team had a second strong event in race two of the London ePrix double-header on Sunday.
Following his win on Saturday, Jake Dennis started race 2 from 17th and came through the field to finish the race in ninth place and speaking following the action he commented saying:
Overall, we can be very happy with our weekend. We scored points twice and had a win to celebrate. My car behaved really well from FP1 to the final race on Sunday. We were superfast in each session. I don’t think that we were ever outside the top five, apart from during qualifying of course. We moved up from 17th to seventh place and then I got a drive-through penalty, so that was a bit of a shame. But overall, it was a great weekend. Now I am looking forward to Berlin.”
Maximilian Gunther started the race in sixth place and that is he finished the race and speaking following the action he said:
All in all, it was a solid day. I felt good in my car during free practice and built a good foundation for qualifying. I can also be very pleased with group qualifying. I put in a good lap in Superpole, although the first drops of rain had started to fall. We were just two tenths of a second away from pole position, which shows how close it was. We were banking on racing in the rain, but unfortunately that didn’t happen so the pace was not quite ideal. I also had the feeling that we could have used attack mode better to finish higher up, but in motorsport there’s no point thinking about could have, would have. We gave it everything and scored some good points.”
Roger Griffiths (BMW i Andretti Motorsport Team Principal, team standings: 5th place):
“The second race here in London was much more eventful. Everyone was a little more conservative yesterday but it was much more aggressive today. In the end, we finished with both cars in the points. That’s what we came here for and that is what helps us in the championship. Maximilian came home in sixth place; Jake finished ninth. It was a great performance from Jake, who worked his way up from P17 after a somewhat disappointing qualifying session. Maximilian reached Superpole again. We are now fifth in the team standings and we had a great time here in London. Formula E organised a fantastic event. Now we are heading into the final two rounds of the world championship in Berlin. Let’s see what we can achieve.”
