EXTREME E - OCEAN X PRIX
Dakar, Senegal
29-30 May 2021

 

Jamie Chadwick, Veloce Racing driver, said: “I feel positive, I think the main focus for us is now just getting laps under our belts and track time. Obviously, we need to make amends for Saudi but also not biting off more than we can chew and taking each step as it comes.


I don’t think we can underestimate how much we need to prepare for a weekend like this. We’ve done the best we can but there’s so much we can’t anticipate so we just have to soak it all in while we can and enjoy it.




“Our season starts here really as we have so few points on the board but from our perspective, with the nature of the series you can’t underestimate how important track time is. I think it’s definitely risk versus reward, so we’ll be pushing but I think we also need to be mindful that we need all of the laps we can get. This is of course very different to W Series, but I love the challenge and I want to be as versatile a driver as possible and I’m grateful to Extreme E and Veloce Racing for the opportunity to learn in this discipline.



“I’m really looking forward to the rest of the weekend. I was very conservative in shakedown and practice but I think it’s nice to start there and build on that. I enjoyed the track time earlier, there’s a lot of room for improvement but I love the challenge of this series and we’ll definitely be faster tomorrow. The pressure is off us a little bit, we’ve made our mistake and now we can learn and grow together to get a good result – the only way is up.”






Stéphane Sarrazin, Veloce Racing driver, said:
“Unfortunately my mistake in Saudi was a costly one, we didn’t race or learn from the car at the first race so that was a real shame.


The team have done a fantastic job though, they changed the chassis on Monday and the car was fine today which is amazing. The car was working fine today with no issues, so we need to be on the pace quickly to catch up with everyone else. We’re ready for tomorrow and hope to have good qualifying sessions.



“I can’t afford any more mistakes, it was a small error in Saudi but it had a big effect so I need to stay on the course and build up my confidence again. Today was good in that respect, tomorrow should be even better. We’re taking it step by step.”
