Buemi aiming to keep up his momentum

Sebastien Buemi is keen to put another strong performance in Mexico as the Swiss driver aims to pick up his first win of the season.

The Renault e.Dams driver enters the race weekend after picking up two podiums in Marrakesh and Santiago, and the 29-year old is determined to go one better in Mexico.

“I’m delighted to be back in Mexico after my performances in the last two races, and I hope that we’ll keep up the momentum. We’ve always been quick in free practice in Mexico, but it’s not been the same story in qualifying. We’re determined to put that right this year and challenge for the race win,” said Buemi.

Buemi’s only major concern about this weekends race is the altitude level as Mexico City is more than 2500 meters above sea level. However, Buemi hopes that Renault’s previous experiences here will lead his engineers to find the correct setup.

“The track is a normal race track, but the circuit is well above sea level; the cars behave differently because the air is thinner, so it’s a big challenge for the team. We’re going to throw all our forces into the battle to be on the pace by taking advantage of the experience acquired in previous years and hope that this allows us to challenge for the win,” added Buemi.

The Swiss driver is currently fourth in the driver’s championship with 37 points, 34 points behind championship leader Jean-Eric Vergne.
