The 12-turn, 2.479km anti-clockwise track will be used for the third time by Formula E. This season, the race will comprise of 37 laps of the fast, bumpy track, which is held in a unique park setting in the Argentine capital.
“The break since the last race has given us time to work hard within the team on improving on our start to the season. I want to be winning races wherever we go.”
“The most exciting part of the Buenos Aires track is the first couple of corners with a fast left hander into a quick chicane leading on to the main straight so carrying speed through here is crucial.”
“The circuit is fast, bumpy and extremely dirty and the ambient conditions at this time of year in the Argentine capital present the teams with specific challenges from a thermal management perspective.”
“In general it was a satisfactory race and we can take positives in that we are not far off the leaders, which is good. We’ve worked hard the last few months and it shows we are on the right track and making progress.”
“In the race I made a good start and felt good in the first part of the stint. I was quicker than Di Grassi, able to overtake him and was pleased to move up to P3. When we made the pitstop it felt smooth, but when I came out I had lost three positions so we need to understand what happened there. We struggled in the second stint with some thermal issues due to the high humidity. We have to take the positives from the weekend; getting to Super Pole, having a car that we can fight for pole with and running in P3 in the first half of the race is a good place to be. We just need to keep learning and moving forwards for the next race.”
“Whilst Nelson’s race went according to plan and was without incident, our focus now has to be on Oliver’s race. He had a very solid first stint but then suffered with thermal issues with his second car. However, we must remember this is only our third race together as a team and we will continue to focus forward and make progress in the coming race events.”
