The anti-clockwise street track used for the Beijing ePrix sits in the grounds of the Olympic Park and is 3.439km in length, featuring 17 turns.
“It is fantastic that we are here in Beijing as a Chinese team and I’m sure we will put on a great show for all the fans that will visit the race. We don’t really know what will happen with performance until we get on the track. We have a bit of catching up to do but as long as we work hard that’s the important part and how we will move forward.”
“I love racing single seaters and I love street circuits so I’m very happy to be involved in the series. We made some good progress in testing in the summer so we will have to see where we are in terms of performance here.”
“But part of being a driver is sticking together, working with the team and getting out of the hole together. It’s not just about being quick, but about building up a team and being on their side. It’s only the first race so I don’t think it will be like this all season, but we need to work hard to improve things.”
“I managed to overtake Villeneuve which I was happy about and then the full course yellow while we were in the pits helped us jump up a few places. The second sting was fairly straightforward, we managed energy well and didn’t get pressure from behind. To get sixth here is a great result for me personally but also as after qualifying we were a bit disappointed with the pace of the car so the result was probably the best we could have achieved today. Thanks to the team for everything, it’s great to get some points on the board.”
