The Formula E Round 7 in Berlin, second race in the Tempelhof Airport, saw again Antonio Felix Da Costa and DS Techeetah on the top.
Here the words of the first three of the podium.
Antonio Felix da Costa (DS Techeetah)
Today was very hard. We were quicker but there wasn’t a moment Seb didn’t have me looking in my mirrors. The first ATTACK MODE was a bit tight especially in the exit but I knew I had the gap – Seb was fair and left me the space. The team was giving me the right information on the battery temperature. Days like this are rare, I know how hard it is to get here and I’m happy to be living this now. Day by day everyone will get close to each other, the next few races will be very tough!
Sebastien Buemi (Nissan e.dams)
The race was closer than I thought. I was unlucky with the first ATTACK MODE as there was Full Course Yellow and I lost its advantage – that would have probably changed things. I had to overtake Lucas and wasted some time there, but in terms of pace we weren’t too far off. DS TECHEETAH are extremely quick, hopefully on Saturday we’ll have more pace during Qualifying. Today we have made a big improvement, on Saturday we’ll be racing on the original track and we hope to do even better ahead of the next race and maybe challenge them.
Lucas di Grassi (Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler)
It was a good day overall. The race was a lot of work but we managed to finish on the podium. We need to keep improving, Saturday we’ll race on the original track and it changes the car, overtaking points and I think it will be better for us to race in that direction, but we’re going to keep working hard to find a better performance since Antonio and the DS TECHEETAH are on a different level. There are plenty of points up for grab and we need to do our best.
