Günther and Müller on the challenges Berlin presents for the Hankook iON Race

Maximilian Günther (Maserati MSG Racing): “The track in Berlin is a huge challenge. The track doesn’t have many turns, but the turns that it does have require perfection. The tyres are, as on all other tracks, a key factor. We have a very good idea of how to get the tyres to the optimum window of operation. Very aggressive asphalt awaits us, so we will try out various things in the first free practice session. You need to be good on the brakes in Berlin, but also have good traction to carry your speed with you into the long straights. This is really important for qualifying, and during the race so that you have the opportunity to overtake. I have very fond memories of Berlin since I won a race there three years ago. Unfortunately, there weren’t any fans at the track due to coronavirus. Which is why I am looking forward to seeing the stands packed.”

Nico Müller (ABT Cupra Formula E Team): “With the track at Tempelhof airport, Berlin is a special stop on the Formula E calendar. The ground with the concrete slabs is a particular challenge for the Hankook iON Race since the surface is very aggressive. However, over the course of the season so far, we've seen that the tyre holds up very well on race weekends and have little wear. Which is why we aren’t too worried about it.”
