Having the first victory of the third Formula E season in their bag, Renault e.dams also prepares for the upcoming challenge on the African continent.
The anti-clockwise Circuit International Automobile Moulay El Hassan is a 2.97km loop that starts with a flowing section down towards the medina before a series of tight corners and chicanes back to the pit straight. Even though the track has been used for the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) in the past, giving the drivers a good idea about it before arriving, reigning champion Sébastien Buemi knows that “it won’t be easy to repeat what we achieved in Hong Kong.”
“This year’s package is clearly a step forward from last year, however everyone else has improved strongly too. Nevertheless, I can’t wait to get out in action”, Buemi said.
Team mate Nicolas Prost who finished fourth in Hong Kong, will be focussing on the qualifying “as strongly as possible no matter what qualifying group, then having a good clean race with hopefully a podium as the result. As a team we’ve won the last four races in Formula E so let’s go for five in a row!”
Senior Team Manager Alain Prost added: “We saw that the competition was close in the season-opening Hong Kong ePrix and it’s likely to be even more tough for us in Marrakesh. Even though we had a strong result to start the season, we weren’t perfect last time out so we know where we need to make improvements as our rivals are pushing us very hard indeed. We know exactly what we want to achieve this weekend and we are all striving to continue our run of success.”
