Electric racing returns to German streets this Saturday, 19th May, with the BMW i Berlin E-Prix.
The ninth round of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship Season 4 will see BMW works driver António Félix da Costa joined at MS&AD Andretti Formula E by Stéphane Sarrazin. Both drivers will be aiming to return the Andretti ATEC-003 to points-paying positions at this unique event, held at Berlin Tempelhof airport. Sarrazin will make his MS&AD Andretti Formula E debut in Germany, replacing Tom Blomqvist. The Briton will now focus on his GT programme with BMW M Motorsport. Sarrazin is no stranger to Formula E, and he will hope to use his experience to bring strong results for the American team.
“Berlin is an important race for us, being the home race of BMW. We are going to have a lot of important people there, and we are looking forward to building on the performance from qualifying in Paris. We want to get a little revenge for the unfinished business we had last race. The MS&AD Andretti Formula E team is very motivated, I'm very motivated, and we are looking forward to getting out there and going for it.”
“I’m really excited to be back in Berlin. We did a great job in the simulator. This race will be tough for me, because I haven't done a Formula E race since New York but I will give my best to the MS&AD Andretti Formula E team. The target is to score points! I also got to work for the first time with António Félix da Costa and it's great to be with a top driver like him. We worked well together, and I’m sure that it will be the same on track.”
