More quotes on the iON Race

Nico Müller (CHE/Abt Cupra Formula E Team): “The circuit in Diriyah is a real challenge for the tyres. The asphalt is very tired and the track is always covered in sand and dust. That makes the surface very slippery. However, the tyre ensured that we still had the necessary grip. Furthermore, it is very consistent, which makes it easy for us drivers to predict how it will behave. That is a very big positive.”

Maximilian Günther (DEU/Maserati MSG Racing): “The tyre is very consistent, which gives me extra confidence out on the track. However, the good grip provided by the tyres is compromised a lot by the sand and smooth surface. Despite this, I am very happy with the performance on the whole.”
