Mike Conway’s ten-month absence from Formula E will be curtailed this Saturday as he takes to the wheel of the Dragon Racing car in place of Loic Duval in Paris.
The British driver raced for Venturi in season two and has tested with the Dragon Racing team in season one. The Brit was named as a lead driver for the American squad for season one, but World Endurance Championship commitments stopped him from racing in Formula E.
“It’s great to be back in Formula E,” said Conway. “It has been ten months since I last drove the Venturi. So hopefully in the next few season’s I can be back in the car more often,” explained the Brit.
Prior experience in Paris
Conway has already driven around the Paris ePrix track last season and is hoping to use that his experience can help the team this weekend, but admits he will have to get used to the changes to the car for season three quickly.
“Paris was one of my favourite circuit’s last season. So I am looking forward to the shakedown so I can learn the new things on the car like the steering wheel, some of the powertrain stuff, and the tyres are different to last season. So I still have a lot to learn,” said Conway.
Aim is Points
The Brit is aiming to help the team score some points in Paris. The American outfit has not had the season they would have hoped for.
Conway is focused on just securing the best result for the team on race day, but the 33-year old is hopeful that the result will be the points.
“Getting the best result possible for the team is key. Obviously, points are definitely something that we can achieve. The team have just had some bad luck and had more issues in Monaco, but they have the speed to get some good results,” said Conway.
