Just one day after the second race of the season in Marrakech, BMW i Andretti Motorsport will attend next Sunday’s official rookie test for the ABB FIA Formula E Championship with two BMW works drivers and DTM champions at the wheel of the BMW iFE.18.
Bruno Spengler, who has already had several outings in the BMW iFE.18 will be joined by Marco Wittmann, making his debut in the Formula E car. “I am very excited about getting on track in a fully-electric race car for the first time,” said Wittmann. “Up to now, I have only followed Formula E from afar. I am fascinated to see how it feels to drive a car.
I think the new Formula E cars are very appealing to us drivers. I am very much looking forward to it and am excited to see how much I enjoy it. My heart beats for the DTM, but I think it is important to keep broadening your horizon. Fortunately, BMW Motorsport has a very diverse programme, which allows us to gain experience in many different cars.”
