The German manufacturing team of BMW i Andretti Motorsport scored twelve points in Rounds three and four of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, given to them by former GEOX Dragon driver Maximilian Günther.
Günther seemed optimistic about the track this weekend, believing the changes made to the track to bring the field closer and provide some interesting racing.
His team principal, Roger Griffiths, believes the new track will lead to changes in set-up of the cars as well as the policing of track limits, something the championship has never had to do: the track limits in Formula E are a high kerb or a wall. He hopes the team will score a good amount of points in the championship, as BMW i Andretti have had a poor start to the season compared to last year.
Jake Dennis, Günther’s teammate in BMW iFE.21 number twenty-seven, is hoping for a comeback weekend in Valencia after his lackluster starts in Diriyah and Rome. Dennis is a rookie in Formula E and has competed in sportscars series before his arrival in Formula E.
The BMW brand will be ending its run in the Formula E championship at the end of the year, at the same time the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team will.
Round five of the Formula E championship is set to begin at 15:00 CET (14:00 BST) on Saturday 24 April 2021 and Round six the following day at 14:00 CET (13:00 BST).
