Following the 1-2 qualifying performance at the season-opener in Hong Kong, the NextEV Formula E Team with drivers Nelson Piquet Jr and Oliver Turvey, head to Marrakesh aiming for another strong performance in the ‘Red City’.
Nelson Piquet Jr (Car #3): “My objective for Marrakesh is to have another strong team performance, see the real potential of the car and score as many points as we can. We will keep assessing our strong areas and looking at areas for improvement so that we know the direction that we need to move in. I think Marrakesh looks like a faster track than we are used to as it’s built for racing and the track is slightly wider. It will be an interesting city to race in and I’m looking forward to getting back on track.”
Oliver Turvey (Car #88): “The biggest challenge in Marrakesh will be learning the new track ahead of qualifying as well as executing the race. The track looks an exciting one, with some faster corners and plenty of straights offering many overtaking opportunities. The first sector looks particularly exciting with two fast long corners. My aim is always to win so I will be aiming to go one better in qualifying and to convert this in the race.”
