Initial impressions from the test in Valencia: Quotes on the Hankook iON Race

Thomas Baltes, Chief Engineer Motorsport: We are very happy with the test so far. Particularly as the rain on Tuesday allowed us to see the iON Race perform in wet conditions. We are working closely with the teams and have so far received an awful lot of positive feedback.

Nico Müller, ABT CUPRA Formula E Team #51: We had a very valuable test day on Tuesday, as far as the tyres are concerned. The conditions varied from dry to slightly damp, right up to very wet. That allowed us to gather very important information for the season and familiarise ourselves with the tyres in a wide range of track conditions. It was a positive start and we have a very good feeling going into the season.
