“We want to be the first Formula E World Champions”: Preston

DS Techeetah Team Principal Mark Preston has set his sights of becoming the first team to win the Formula E World Championship and carry on their record-breaking run in season seven. 

Speaking ahead of pre-season testing Preston is hopeful the team can continue their success from the past two years

“If you look at the results from the previous two seasons, we couldn’t really aim for anything else but another double championship win, but this time as the first World Champions of Formula E,” stated Mark Preston “That winning mentality is key for us as it echoes everything that we do, and it lives within our partners, suppliers, team, and beyond.”

The reigning champions will start the season running an upgraded version of last season’s car, before they introduce their new powertrain mid-season which will see them through the remainder of season seven and the entirety of season eight.

“Given the tremendous results from Season Six and the DS E-TENSE FE20, we will start Season Seven with an upgraded version of the championship-winning car and introduce the DS E-TENSE FE21 at the Rome E-Prix. ” Said Xavier Mestelan Pinon as DS Performance Director.

“Season Seven is a new challenge for us, but our objectives remain the same – fighting for victories and titles.”

Both drivers are looking forward to another tough season where they expect to be fighting for another championship this season.

“We are going for that first World Championship title, and we’ll do everything in our power to get there,” said Antonio Felix Da Costa.

“Our Season Six results proved our competitiveness, and I am extremely excited to show what we’ve got in store for Season Seven,” said Jean-Eric Vergne.
