S7_Diriyah, Saturday, 27th February 2021 - Stephen Reuß

So, how important are the races in Rome? Firstly, did you know that we are the industry leader in Italy with over 40% share in the turbine market and +3,000 wind turbines installed! Incredibly, together with our partners, we’re helping to save the environment from more than four million tonnes of CO2 per year.

 

Our presence in the Italian market is clearly significant, and we’re hoping this can be reflected by an electrifying performance by the Team this weekend. Stoffel Vandoorne will be looking to equal or improve his 2019 performance in Rome when he achieved his first podium position in a Formula E race, and Nyck de Vries will surely be hungry for another strong performance off the back of his first win in Diriyah, in February.

But, what will the conditions be like for rounds three and four, and how might they impact the racing? Our weather team in Vestas has provided some crucial insights: Whilst both races look relatively settled with temperatures in the mid-teens (ºC), there is a chance of rain which could create uncertainty on the track.

All will be revealed this weekend in Rome! You can follow the racing on Saturday (E-Prix starts at 16:00 CEST) and Sunday (E-Prix starts at 13:00 CEST). Check out your options for viewing here.
