Puebla. BMW i Andretti Motorsport has rounded off the race weekend in Puebla (MEX) by getting both BMW iFE.21s into the points for the first time this season. Jake Dennis (GBR) finished fifth in the ninth race of the season in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship to repeat his result from the previous day. Maximilian Günther (GER) finished seventh and also scored important points for the overall standings. Dennis also chalked up another point for being the fastest driver in qualifying.

 

Dennis dominated qualifying, recording the best time by some margin, but then had problems with tyre grip in Super Pole and began the race from fifth on the grid. This time, Günther could not find the ideal lap and finished eleventh, missing out on the Super Pole that he had already reached five times this season.

 

Both drivers improved swiftly during the race, however, consolidating their positions in the top ten with some consistent lap times. In the end, Dennis received 11 points for finishing fifth and recording the best time in qualifying, while Günther scored six points in seventh place. The two drivers are now in eighth and 18th positions in the drivers’ standings. In the team championship, BMW i Andretti Motorsport is now in sixth place with 82 points.

 

Reactions to Race 9 in Puebla.

 

Roger Griffiths (BMW i Andretti Motorsport Team Principal, team standings: 7th place):

“I think this was a really strong finish to our weekend here in Mexico. We had again Jake Dennis in Super Pole with fastest overall in the groups’ qualifying and I think we were all a bit disappointed with fifth on the grid but if you make it to Super Pole it’s much easier to race from there. Then in the race, after the initial melee at the start sort of settled down it was a smart race from Jake. Behind him, Maximilian Günther starting back in eleventh, worked his way forward. It was really good aggressive driving from Maximilian but he kept his energy consumption under control, a good improvement from yesterday. He was just the wingman to Jake today and when it was necessary he put Lynn under pressure right at the end and really made him look in his mirrors rather than trying to attack Jake too hard. First double points finish for the team of the season, we are super pleased. That is very valuable for the championship.”

 

Jake Dennis (#27 BMW iFE.21, starting position: 5th place, race result: 5th place, points: 54, driver standings: 8th place):

“Mexico race two done – I should be pretty happy. It was quite a technical race with the energy but I think we did the best job possible. We got a bit unlucky when Edoardo Mortara got to attack mode and then he ended up catching me at the wrong point so we dropped back down to fifth. But overall had a quite a clean race and I think we did the optimum. So I am happy. The team has done a great job all weekend and we had two guys scoring points today which is super important for the championship.”

 

Maximilian Günther (#28 BMW iFE.21, starting position: 11th place, race result: 7th place, points: 28, driver standings: 18th place):

“A great result for the team. We can be really pleased with fifth and seventh positions. Starting from eleventh on the grid made my race anything but easy with all the hustle and bustle. I moved up a few places at the start. We then managed the race intelligently and did not lose our cool when we dropped back a place or two. We were then able to make good use of Attack Mode and had the pace required. Compared to yesterday, we made really good progress today.”

 

The FANBOOST vote.

FANBOOST gives Formula E fans the opportunity to vote for their favourite driver and award them an extra boost of power during the race. The five drivers with the most FANBOOST votes receive an extra 100 kJ of power, which they can make use of during a brief time frame in the second half of the race. Fans can vote for their favourite driver in the four days prior to, and leading up to 15 minutes into, each race. Each fan can vote once per day. There are two ways to vote: Online at https://fanboost.fiaformulae.com/ or via the official Formula E App.

 

The BMW Group Safety Cars.
The BMW Group has been represented in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship as ‘Official Vehicle Partner’ since the very beginning and will continue to provide the fleet of safety cars for season 7 of the fully-electric racing series. Alongside the BMW i8 Roadster Safety Car (fuel consumption (combined): 2.0 l /100 km; energy use (combined): 14.5 kWh /100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 46 g/km)*, which has been modified specially for racing use, the MINI Electric Pacesetter inspired by JCW will be appearing as a new safety car from the Rome E-Prix onwards. The development of the car based on the new MINI Cooper SE represents a hitherto unique collaboration between MINI Design, BMW Motorsport, the FIA and Formula E. The fleet also includes the BMW i3s (Power consumption in kWh/100: 14.6-14.0 (NEDC); 16.6-16.3 (WLTP), electric range in km: 278-283 (WLTP))* as ‘Race Director Car’ and the BMW iX3 (Power consumption in kWh/100: 17.8-17.5 (NEDC); 19.0-18.6 (WLTP), electric range in km: 450-458 (WLTP))* in its roles as ‘Medical Car’ and ‘Rescue Car'.

CO2 EMISSIONS & CONSUMPTION.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emission and energy consumption shown were determined in the standardized test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model. The values are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.
Effective 06.12.2018
Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, and under https://www.dat.de/co2/.

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/.
