Nico Müller on Misano and the Hankook iON Race

Nico Müller on Misano and the Hankook iON Race

Nico Müller from the ABT Cupra Formula E Team finished seventh in Tokyo, picking up his first points of the season and confirming the improvement in form shown by the team. Having gained an initial impression in the simulator, the Swiss driver reports back on the Misano circuit and what awaits the Hankook iON Race:

Nico Müller: “The race in Misano is a totally different challenge to Tokyo for the Hankook iON Race. The circuit is very smooth and I believe we can expect a relatively large amount of grip. There are many corners, in which we will have a “combined load”, which means we must either brake and steer at the same time, or accelerate and steer. I also expect a lot of contact with the kerbs. That is definitely a challenge for the tyre, but we know that the Hankook tyre is very consistent. As such, I am not at all worried about that. The key will be to get the tyre into the ideal temperature range as quickly as possible, and to adjust the set-up so that we can fully exploit the potential of the tyre in these combined phases. The topic of energy management will also be very important for us drivers, as we have a 28-lap race on the Saturday and a race with 26 laps on the Sunday.”
