Giovinazzi admits Formula E is ‘difficult’

Dragon Penske Formula E driver Antonio Giovinazzi says he finds Formula E “extremely difficult” after his futile start to the 2022 season so far.

The former Alfa Romeo Formula 1 driver is racing the Dragon Penske this season but the team is sitting at the bottom of the Formula E championship table, the only 11-team team to fail to score a point after eight races.

Speaking ahead of yesterday’s second Berlin EPrix match where he finished 22nd and final after his best season in qualifying for the Championship 16, Giovinazzi admitted that his lack of experience in the electric racing series was a handicap.

It’s tough,” Giovinazzi said. “It’s definitely different. I was expecting it, but yeah, it’s very difficult. A completely different look, a different car, so it’s all completely new to me.

“Now, finally, especially in qualifying, the speed is better – I just need more laps, more experience. There is not much we can do on the track – no testing. It was very difficult this weekend to adapt to two tracks. New for the first time, you know. So it’s hard but yeah, I just keep getting better.”
