Conway looking to add to point tally
After getting caught up in an incident in qualifying for the Paris ePrix, Mike Conway’s aim for Berlin is to score more points for Venturi in the championship standings, with a personal target of reaching the podium.
The Englishman showed promising pace in Paris, setting the fastest time in FP2 before being wiped out by a recovering Nick Heidfeld while on a fast lap in qualifying.
Now Conway believes that the progress of the team will enable him to be a regular points scorer as he looks to help Venturi rise up the table.
An unfortunate crash put pay to any sort of result in Paris, but what do you take away from the fact you topped FP2?
“It was good, we kept trying a few different setups and since the start we were scraping away at changes and towards the end of Paris we had a really good car. I’m happy in terms of what the car can do now and can extract time out of it. It’s a shame with the unfortunate incident in qualifying with one car spinning and coming back on track, that was out of our control and then in the race it was quite hard to do anything in terms of managing energy and moving forward. I found it quite tough to do anything so really you have to qualify up front. If we can do that every race we will be able to score points every time like Stephane has shown. The potential is there, we just have to have a drama-free weekend.”
Say you do have a drama-free weekend, where do you expect to finish?
“Hopefully in the points at least. There are three races to go now and I want to get some good results, not only for myself but for the team, score some good points and get up in the championship. A podium is what I’m looking for.”
Looking forward to season three, are you wanting to stay with Venturi?
“We’ve not really discussed it yet but I love the Formula E series so I want to stay here with Venturi.”
