Extreme E, the all-electric SUV racing series got underway in Greenland for the Arctic X Prix on Friday. There were technical issues for the Segi.TV Chip Ganassi Racing and Veloce Racing teams as well as ACCIONA Sainz XE team and speaking following the action today, drivers said:

Christine GZ, XITE ENERGY RACING powered by myenergi driver, said: “The track is really hard and super technical. There are areas with a lot of sand and areas with a lot of rocks and you have to switch really fast but I just loved it so much, it was really cool and hope tomorrow will be even better.”

“I don’t think the rock garden was that bad, some people seemed to struggle there but I thought it was ok!”

Kevin Hansen, JBXE driver, said: “I enjoyed it a lot but for sure, it was challenging but I wouldn’t have it any other way!”

“I’m keeping that secret to myself as to where it was (where the puncture happened) so I know where it was and the others won’t expect that!”

Molly Taylor, Rosberg X Racing driver, said: “Yeah you walk it (the course) and you don’t really know what to expect and so it was nice just to have a run in the car.

“Look anything could happen in these events so you need to get the speed and all those one-percenters and sometimes you need a bit of luck as well. We’re just going to do the best job that we can and take each session as it comes which will hopefully put us in a good place. But everything’s feeling good.”

Sara Price, Segi TV Chip Ganassi Racing driver, said: “The battery has overheated unfortunately. We’re now figuring out what the next plan is for the team to execute a successful weekend so we are going to go back to the pits and work on our strategy.”
