Delphine Biscayne, Venturi Formula E Team boss, has been enthusiastic about taking part in the first round of the Ad-Diriyah Formula E-Prix race on December 15.
“We came from Monaco to take part in the first round in Saudi Arabia and we have Brazilian driver Felipe Massa, who is a former Formula One player and is very skilled and experienced.”
Massa announced his entry into the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in May 2018, joining the Venturi Formula E Team for Season 5 alongside teammate Edoardo Mortara.
Impressed with the facilities
“The cars that took part in the race arrived in Saudi Arabia two days ago and everyone, including the drivers and the technical staff, started working to compete for the race. Our schedule includes work from 9 am to 12 pm in the garage for the maintenance of the cars, and to fully equip it we need 48 hours, and on Friday we will inspect the safety systems.”
“This is my first visit to Saudi Arabia and even to the entire Middle East. No doubt the region and atmosphere are different from Europe. The country is distinguished by its friendly and friendly people. I am really impressed by the facilities and preparations I have seen for the tournament.”
Seven female drivers
At least seven female racing drivers will take part in a Formula E test in Saudi Arabia after the country hosts the season-opening race next month, the all-electric series said on Tuesday in London, according to Reuters.
The test, involving all the teams, will be a day after the December. 15 race on the streets of Ad Diriyah, near Riyadh.
