Once again cars will battling against each other around a track that uses a modified configuration of the iconic Formula E street circuit. The 2015 Monaco ePrix saw NextEV NIO’s Nelson Piquet Jr claim a podium finish.
“In the race, we got some good points in the bank, which is a real positive, but I don’t think we could have done any better. It was one of my toughest races – I spent the whole time looking in my mirrors. We have the qualifying pace, the car felt good the whole time, we just need to continue to work on our race performance.”
“We were trying to pick up as many positions in the race as we could. I felt we could have scored some points but, unfortunately, we were struggling with energy in the final few laps and it was disappointing to finish just outside of the points.”
“ In the main Nelson’s race was uneventful, although the safety car being brought out put a twist on both his and the rest of the field’s race. Both Nelson and Oliver pitted on the same lap, Nelson re-joining the track in 4th position where he remained to the end of the race. Starting from 16th on the grid in Monaco was always going to be a tall order for Oliver. Having gained a few positions in the first stint, Oliver lost a position in the pit stops to Antonio Felix Da Costa, and re-joined the race in 12th position. Towards the end of the race Oliver was struggling with energy and as a result finished after the final lap in 13th position.”
