MS Amlin Andretti say that they were pleased to have kept hold of seventh place in the team’s championship after a disappointing Montreal ePrix.
Although Robin Frijns had managed to finish eighth on the Saturday, both he and Antonio Felix da Costa started towards the back for Sunday’s race and weren’t able to make much progress in the race, finishing well outside the points.
While disappointed with the result, Andretti Team Principal Roger Griffiths said that the team’s main aim going into the weekend was to keep their seventh place position in the championship – something they managed by just one point.
“We came to Montreal with a principle goal of retaining our position within the team’s championship and that has been achieved, so we are pleased with that,” Griffiths said.
“Obviously seventh place is not really where we wish to finish but we are pleased we didn’t fall further behind. As far as Race 2 here in Montreal goes, it was slightly disappointing to finish outside of the points.
“For some reason, neither driver was able to make the progress during the race that we had seen previously and we finished the season on a little bit of a low note.”
Da Costa said he too was pleased to keep hold of seventh for the team, but that the team needed to regroup and come back stronger for season four.
He said, “It was a tough race for the MS Amlin Andretti team today but I’m glad we kept seventh in the championship.
“We need to regroup with the guys and I’m looking forward to having some time off. We will start again in Season 4.”
