Motor racing returns to the very heart of stunning Berlin for the first time in almost 20 years with the new city-centre Berlin ePrix circuit. The FIA Formula E Championship track is 1.26 miles (2.03km) long with 11 turns. It winds its way around Strausberger Platz towards Alexanderplatz, with the pitman on Karl-Marx-Allee, all overlooked by the iconic TV Tower ‘Fernsehturm’.
“With the package we have, we need to be in the right place to take advantages when we can, and with the unscheduled pitstop for the nose cone change, that made that impossible today.”
“I had a good start and was able to hold position and pace. I clipped the bollard at the first chicane, damaged the end of the front wing and it was frustrating to get a technical flag. This dropped us down the field and made things very difficult after this.”
“Both Nelson and Oliver clipped the bollards on the first chicane on lap one, which caused damage to the noses and sadly we were always on the back foot after that.”
