London. In a tumultuous Sunday race, Maximilian Günther (GER) and Jake Dennis (GBR) scored valuable points in the overall ABB FIA Formula E World Championship standings. Günther had started the 13th race of the season from sixth on the grid and crossed the line in the same position. Dennis followed up his win at the London E-Prix (GBR) on Saturday with a courageous recovery performance, clawing back eight places to finish ninth, having started from 17th on the grid. A drive-through penalty just before the end of the race put paid to his chances of a better finish. The MINI Electric Pacesetter inspired by JCW, the official FIA Formula E Safety Car, appeared twice after incidents had occurred.

 

Günther drove a commanding race after a disappointing Saturday. He had delivered proof of his pace during the morning qualifying session, securing a place in the Super Pole competition for the seventh time this season. He reached sixth in the battle for grid positions, recording a time of 1:20.398 minutes. Günther was unable to steer clear of all the incidents as the race progressed at the London exhibition centre, but he displayed plenty of stamina to maintain his position to the finish line.

 

Dennis gave another strong performance in the free practice session, ending the session in second place as he had done on the previous day. However, his starting position in the drivers’ standings meant that he had to compete in qualifying group one. He was the first driver out on the track and secured third place, before being pushed back down to 17th as the session progressed. Dennis mounted a spirited chase in the race and spent some time ahead of Günther before being knocked back to ninth place due to a drive-through penalty for a technical infringement.

 

Formula E rookie Dennis is now fourth in the drivers’ standings, with 81 points. Günther is in 15th place, with 62 points. BMW i Andretti Motorsport is fifth in the team standings with 143 points.

 

The Season 7 finale will take place in three weeks, at the former Berlin-Tempelhof (GER) airport. After races 14 and 15 complete the season, one driver will be crowned world champion for the first time in the history of Formula E.

 

Reactions to Race 13 in London.

 

Roger Griffiths (BMW i Andretti Motorsport Team Principal, team standings: 5th place):

“The second race here in London was much more eventful. Everyone was a little more conservative yesterday but it was much more aggressive today. In the end, we finished with both cars in the points. That’s what we came here for and that is what helps us in the championship. Maximilian came home in sixth place; Jake finished ninth. It was a great performance from Jake, who worked his way up from P17 after a somewhat disappointing qualifying session. Maximilian reached Superpole again. We are now fifth in the team standings and we had a great time here in London. Formula E organised a fantastic event. Now we are heading into the final two rounds of the world championship in Berlin. Let’s see what we can achieve.”

 

Jake Dennis (#27 BMW iFE.21, starting position: 17th place, race result: 9th place, points: 81, driver standings: 4th place):

“Overall, we can be very happy with our weekend. We scored points twice and had a win to celebrate. My car behaved really well from FP1 to the final race on Sunday. We were superfast in each session. I don’t think that we were ever outside the top five, apart from during qualifying of course. We moved up from 17th to seventh place and then I got a drive-through penalty, so that was a bit of a shame. But overall, it was a great weekend. Now I am looking forward to Berlin.”

 

Maximilian Günther (#28 BMW iFE.21, starting position: 6th place, race result: 6th place, points: 62, driver standings: 15th place):

“All in all, it was a solid day. I felt good in my car during free practice and built a good foundation for qualifying. I can also be very pleased with group qualifying. I put in a good lap in Superpole, although the first drops of rain had started to fall. We were just two tenths of a second away from pole position, which shows how close it was. We were banking on racing in the rain, but unfortunately that didn’t happen so the pace was not quite ideal. I also had the feeling that we could have used attack mode better to finish higher up, but in motorsport there’s no point thinking about could have, would have. We gave it everything and scored some good points.”

 

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/.
