NextEV’s Nelson Piquet Jr and Oliver Turvey will be in action for NextEV as the FIA Formula E Championship visits Mexico for the first time.
“They gave Formula 1 an incredible reception earlier in the year and I hope they enjoy what we bring to the city with Formula E. It’s right that big races are going back to a city with such motorsport history.”
“I hope that we will be able to welcome many fans and to introduce them to electric racing with a fantastic, competitive, exciting Formula E race.”
“Nelson and Oliver have been to Germany ahead of the race and have been working hard on our new simulator. We are looking to build on our recently improving performance with points scoring finishes in the race.”
“This race didn’t really change much in terms of performances; the Renaults and the Audis were still quick and we struggled a bit. Overtaking was more difficult here which made a bit of a difference. It was still a challenging track so that was good. Mexico brought a good show here, the fans were so enthusiastic and it was great to see such a good crowd.”
“We had a really strong free practice this morning and were quick, but in qualifying the car felt completely different and that really affected the race. We had a decent first stint and showed good energy management again, which allowed us to run an extra lap. But it was so difficult to overtake in the second stint that after I passed de Silvestro it was just a case of finishing the race. Long Beach should suit us a little better so we’re looking forward to getting there.”
