Jake Dennis will attack his second weekend of FIA Formula E this weekend in Italy as the British racer takes on the Rome ePrix with the BMW i Andretti Motorsport team.
Dennis made his Formula E debut at the end of February in the Diriyah ePrix in Saudi Arabia, and although he failed to score points in either race, he goes into this weekend in Rome eyeing the top ten.
The Rome ePrix track has been extended for the 2020-21 season, and Dennis says it will be a challenging weekend for both himself and the team due to the technical nature of the track.
“The races in Rome are some of the most exciting ones in the whole season,” said Dennis. “I love the city, so I am looking forward even more to competing there in Formula E as well.
“The new circuit is very technical and extremely long. That will be a new challenge for all of us.”
“Rome is always something special in Formula E” – Maximilian Günther
Team-mate Maximilian Günther failed to see the chequered flag in either of the Diriyah ePrix races, and the German is looking to break into the points this weekend in Italy.
Günther says is excited by the prospect of racing on the new, extended layout this weekend in Rome, and after experiencing the track in the simulator, he expects it to be a lot of fun to race on.
“Rome is always something special in Formula E,” said Günther. “We are already very excited about the new layout, the longest on the race schedule.
“After a few laps in the simulator, I think that the circuit offers everything that you need to have a lot of fun behind the wheel, and good racing action. We could have not have prepared any better and we are approaching the Rome double-header with great team spirit.”
