The TAG-Heuer Formula E Team’s Andre Lotterer started Saturday’s New York ePrix, round ten of season seven from eighth place and came home in tenth place and speaking following the action he commented saying:
I finished in the points and I’m satisfied with that result. I had a good race and I made the most of my options. Our car handled well on the challenging track and I think we can do better tomorrow.”
Pascal Wehrlein started the race in sixth place but was forced to retire and speaking following the action he commented saying:
“I’m disappointed. It was clearly my mistake. I activated attack mode for the second time, braked later than the car in front of me, the brakes suddenly locked up and I couldn’t swerve in time. Luckily we have another chance tomorrow, which we’ll hopefully make better use of.
Amiel Lindesay, Head of Operations Formula E:
“Like in Mexico, we again showed our potential here in New York City. Pascal did a mega job coming from the second quali group and made it through to Super Pole. In the race, he took the second attack mode, which means he could brake a bit later, his front tyres locked and he went into the back of another car. Unfortunately, suspension damage signalled the end of his race. It’s a shame because he could definitely have been among the top contenders. Like Pascal, André had to start on the dirty side of the track. Still, he drove a solid and efficient race and brought home points. We’ll be back in the fight tomorrow. Credit must be given to the team for handling the battery temperatures so well. They did a great job in doing this in such hot conditions with no noticeable performance offset.”
