Felix Rosenqvist goes into Punta Del Este ePrix full of confidence after his team executed a perfect weekend in Mexico, despite suffering from a battery failure last time out.
The Swede was on course to take victory in Mexico, but a battery failure that Mahindra has no control over caused an early retirement.
The Formula E battery is produced and managed by Williams Advanced Engineering. The British company distributes the batteries to all ten teams.
Rosenqvist believes that if his team can pull off another perfect weekend he will be able to fight for the win in Punta Del Este.
“Not much has changed for Punta in my approach even if we had the massive set back in Mexico. It was out of our hands, so it’s actually nothing to learn from, as we did a perfect job.
“That’s what I want to do in Punta as well: a weekend without mistakes, failures. The track looks awesome and my gut feeling says it will suit me well!” explained Rosenqvist.
Nick Heidfeld is coming off two races that saw him not reach the finish line due to technical and on-track issues.
Heidfeld is charged up, and only looking forward to tackling the tricky track, calling on his experience, precision and ability to get around a track quickly.
“I’m looking forward to going back to Punta as I missed the last race we had there due to my wrist injury two years ago. Even by Formula E standards, it’s a crazy circuit with all the chicanes. It is special to be literally next to the beach; which will obviously also make circuit conditions tricky at times.” said Heidfeld.
