The NIO 333 ABB FIA Formula E team is looking forward to this weekend’s Monte Carlo ePrix. Speaking ahead of this weekend’s event, Oliver Turvey commented saying:
“It’s always special to race in Monaco, this year I can’t wait to be able to race NIO 333 Formula E car on the full street circuit! Having won on the Grand Prix track previously, I have very fond memories of these iconic streets. After an encouraging weekend in Valencia with two strong races, I am aiming to continue this momentum into Monaco to fight for Superpole again and more points for the team.”
Tom Blomqvist is also looking forward to this weekend’s race saying:
Monaco itself doesn’t need any introduction! It’s pretty awesome that Formula E is racing on the full circuit. I have never raced there myself so that’s going to be really exciting. The team had a good result in Valencia with Oliver; I had a troubling weekend in terms of the races, so hopefully we’ve learned what went on there and we can have a solid weekend in Monte Carlo. That’s the main goal. It’s going to be a cool weekend, a cool experience racing on the full track – it’s going to be fun!
Christian Silk, Team Principal of NIO 333 Formula E Team commented saying:
I don’t think there is a motor racing fan alive who would not be excited by the thoughts of going to race at Monaco. Over the years I have been there many times and am still thrilled to be returning. During this time I have experienced the highs and lows of racing, from working 72 hours straight to get the car built only for it to crash on the first lap (I may have shed a tear) to some memorable wins.
To be racing the NIO 333 Formula E cars around the full length of the historic circuit is a real honour, one that the whole team is looking forwards to. The great performances during the last race in Valencia only heightens the expectation.
Qualifying is everything on this historic circuit as it is always difficult to overtake around the Principality, so we will be really focused on achieving the best possible grid positions. As we have seen recently anything can happen in Formula E, but I am sure that if we can qualify well then we will be in a position to pick up a points result at the end of the race.
