What a good start !

This new HongKong circuit was really interesting, even though it was probably a little bit too short. We faced some trouble to set up our car, and my qualification session wasn’t that good. I started from the 5th place.

During the race, I climbed the positions, and I was third when the Safety Car came out. We decided then to pit and change car. That was the right decision, as the Safety Car was so slow that I saved my battery a lot. Then, I passed Lucas di Grassi on track. He was probably watching his electric consumption more than me, and I went flat out.

I have to admit that I was a bit lucky in HongKong, as we were not on it, a little bit like Paris last year. This victory is really down to our strategy. Generally speaking, I am looking forward to this season. The car, this season, seems to be better than last year. I hope to be able to keep my title this year…
