The 1.947km (1.21mile) 13 corner track will wind its way around Pier 11 and the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal and will be the first time a FIA sanctioned open-wheel race will take place in the city.
“We’ve had some encouraging results, particularly in qualifying this year, so if the track suits us a bit more in Brooklyn, my aim is to be fighting for Super Pole on both days and working to convert that into results in the race. We need to come away from New York with a really strong points haul.”
“The turn two and turn three combination looks like the most challenging section of the track. My aims for New York are to achieve the best possible result for the team. I will be aiming to reach superpole and to qualify on pole position, and in the race I will be aiming to stand on the top step of the podium”
“Qualifying is where our strengths currently lie and, while that is a positive, we need to start converting these excellent grid positions into tangible points finishes in the races. Given the more conventional Formula E circuit and specific layout of the NYC track, which should suit our car more, we will be aiming to secure strong race results for the NextEV NIO Formula-e Team.”
“Today, we knew that getting a result after starting from last today due to the emotor change was close to impossible. We are going to have to see if there’s anything we can do for Montreal regarding the powertrain issues so we can improve our qualifying and race results.”
“I was happy to finish P6 yesterday, which was the best we could have done, and score eight points, but it was a shame that we couldn’t get anything out of the race today.”
“Yesterday, both drivers had powertrain issues, which made it very difficult to maintain a consistent pace throughout the race.Today, whilst Oliver capitalised on the pace of the car in qualifying to line up 7th on the grid, we struggled with race pace for both drivers this afternoon. With one double-header race event remaining, we will regroup and focus forward on Montreal.”
