After having a disappointing car in season two, Oliver Turvey is hopeful that he can fight for podiums and race wins in season three.
The British driver has scored ten points so far this season, but he is hopeful that he will be able to fight for podiums and wins more consistently this season.
“I am driving a much stronger car this season so I am looking forward to continuing the development with the team so I can fight to get onto the podium and challenge for race wins,” said Turvey.
Turvey finished the Buenos Aires race ninth last season, but the Brit was robbed of a good finish after a slow pit stop during the race which relegated him down the order.
“Last year, I felt I got to grips with the track quickly, which is one of the faster circuits of the year, and was able to make a strong start to move forwards on the first lap. The management of the energy and temperature is crucial with the long straights, and this will be only the second time in Formula E that I have returned to a circuit, so I aim to use this experience to get a strong result for the team,” said the 29-year old.
NEXTEV have been working on trying to improve their energy management during the break between Marrakesh and Buenos Aires. Turvey explains that he has been working in the simulator to help find the way the team can improve their energy efficiency.
“It was pleasing to score points for the team in the first two races in Hong Kong and Marrakesh, but since then we have been working hard together to learn and understand areas we can improve. I have spent time working with the engineers on the NextEV NIO Formula E team simulator to help develop the car and understand how to maximise the energy in Buenos Aires,” said Turvey.
