Victory in Paris
What a special race that was! The location, the fans, the atmosphere – it was unique. Paris showed today how best to bring innovation and electromobility to the fans. I really hope we come back to Paris next year. This victory is the reward for all our hard work. We always try to give everything and to develop as a team. We’ll continue doing that right up to the last run in London. Thanks to the team and to my fans!

Stunning atmosphere in the heart of Paris
We didn’t have a shakedown today, because the track won’t be cordoned off until the evening so as to cause minimum disruption to the Parisian traffic. But that doesn’t mean that we drivers had nothing to do: there was a press conference, then photo opportunities, the track walk and the team briefing. I am particularly impressed by the location – from our team marquee, we have a direct view of the Eiffel Tower – wow! Paris is certainly one of the Top Three destinations we have been to so far. I’ll be giving it everything I’ve got tomorrow because I absolutely want the win here.

Arrival in Paris
I arrived in Paris today. I’m sure that the race here will become a new highlight on the calendar – my congratulations to Formula E for successfully organizing this race in the middle of the city. The track and its surroundings suit the series perfectly. I’m already really looking forward to this weekend, and we’ll try to win once again, even though this is a home race for our friends and competitors from France.
