In the next of our interviews from Formula E’s first pre-season test at Donington Park, earlier this month, Laura Prior caught up with MS Amlin Andretti’s Robin Frijns for a brief chat about his new team-mate, the prospect of a Formula E race in Holland, and his hopes for next season!
EVP: Robin, tell us, what have you been up to since London? Have you managed to have a break?
EVP: This year is the first running of Andretti’s bespoke powertrain, so can you give us an indication of how the car feels? Is there a definite change, or too early to tell?
EVP: One obvious visual change this year is the new front wing. Do you feel it’s mostly about aesthetic over function?
EVP: You’re one of the drivers we always see a lot of praise for, and I think for good reason. Some strong results last season – you scored 45 out of the team’s 49 points – any particular highlights of last season for you?
EVP: With a new season comes a new team-mate for you, in Antonio. You’ve both had competitive results, and a lot of fans have been excited over such a strong driver line-up. Are you looking forward to working together and pushing each other?
EVP: Looking to this calendar, we obviously have a big shake up in the calendar. Montreal in, NYC finale, back to Monaco, Marrakesh. Some cool destinations! Is there any race you’re looking forward to this year?
EVP: Considering the new cities added, how would you feel about a Formula E race in The Netherlands? Obviously, with rising stars like Max Verstappen, there seems to be a new generation of motorsport fans coming in. How do you think Formula E would be received if we held a race there?
EVP: I think we’re all hoping for some exciting races this season, and to see you up there on the podium. Are you chasing a podium, a win, more? What are your personal goals for this season?
