Valencia. BMW i Andretti Motorsport has successfully completed the official tests ahead of Season 7 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship at ‘Circuit Ricardo Tormo’ at Valencia (ESP). Maximilian Günther (GER) and Jake Dennis (GBR) did a total of more than 500 laps over the course of the three test days. As he did last year, Günther clocked the fastest time of the week. On Tuesday, he lapped the circuit in 1:11.760 minutes in his BMW iFE.21. Dennis ended his first official outing as a BMW i Andretti Motorsport driver with a fastest time of 1:12.047 minutes.

 

As well as the usual programme, the test also included a full race simulation to practice all the processes, looking ahead to the start of the season, which is scheduled for 16th/17th January 2021 in Santiago de Chile.

 

Quotes on the Formula E test at Valencia:

 

Roger Griffiths (team principal BMW i Andretti Motorsport): “All in all we are very happy with the way things have been running here. It’s always nice to be on top of the timing sheets at the end, but we don’t get any points in the championship for that. It’s all about the work that we accomplished in the last few days and we really had no hold-ups and reliability issues at all. Maximilian Günther has obviously carried his speed from season six over into season seven. We are also very pleased with the way Jake Dennis has progressed over the course of the test. He gave us very good feedback and got up to speed very quickly.”

 

Maximilian Günther (#28 BMW iFE.21): “It is obviously great to have set the fastest time of the week again, as we did last year. Having said that, the focus of the tests was not on lap times. We were fully focussed on completing our programme, and we did a good job of that. We had worked very hard and well in the run-up to this test. Here at Valencia, we took the opportunity to try some different things with the new car. I think we did a very good job.”

 

Jake Dennis (#27 BMW iFE.21): “I think we can be happy with our performance during this test. The car seems to be working well. Personally, I was able to adapt to the specific demands of Formula E very quickly. I familiarised myself with the software and all the other processes, so that I now feel far better prepared for the first race in Santiago. I am now very much looking forward to my first race in January.”

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
