Robin Frijns: “For me, what is important is scoring consistently at every round”

Robin Frijns sits third in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship standings after the first four races of the 2020-21 season, and the Dutchman is relatively happy the way the year has started.

The Envision Virgin Racing driver has had an up-and-down campaign to date, finishing second place in race two of the Diriyah E-Prix and fourth place in race one of the Rome E-Prix as well as positions well outside of the top ten in the other two races.  He sits third in the standings, nine points behind current championship leader Sam Bird of Jaguar Racing.

Frijns says it is important for him to find consistency and score points in every race this season if he wants to be a genuine contender for the championship this year, and he hopes to be able to score points in both races of the Valencia E-Prix this weekend. He is expecting a different kind of Formula E weekend as the series races on a permanent track as opposed to a street circuit in Valencia, albeit with some adaptations to its layout.

“To be lying in third place in the standings after four rounds is a great way to start the season but there’s still a long way to go,” said Frijns.  “For me, what is important is scoring consistently at every round so we can keep the pressure on.

“I’ve completed countless laps at Valencia over the various test sessions so we have a lot of data to work off, but racing on a wide, permanent track as opposed to the tight, twisty ones we’re used to in Formula E will feel very different.”
