The Paris ePrix is the first European race on the 2015-2016 calendar, kicking off the second half of the season. A circuit has been created in the lively city, circling the Musée de l’Armée and incorporating many famous Parisian landmarks.
“I loved the track, it’s immediately become one of my favourites to drive, along with Moscow and Monaco. Unfortunately we don’t have the pace to be fighting at the front, but I say a huge congratulations to everyone involved in putting this event together.”
“The opening laps were strong, but then it became apparent that the other cars around me had a better pace, so the guys in front started to pull away, and I had to start to defend from the cars behind and had some good battles on track. Unfortunately we had a poor pit stop so lost a few places and then during the second stint I pushed hard to maintain position. However we can take the positives of a strong qualifying away with us, and look ahead to the next race.”
“Sadly we had a technical issue with Nelson's car and a slow pitstop with Oliver, which meant overall a disappointing race, but we will come back fighting next time.”
