it is Not my usual all-a three times champion of the Touring car world to become a ‘rookie’, but the reality is that ‘Pechito’ Lopez will make his debut in Formula E this weekend on the occasion of the ePrix of Hong Kong after consummating a few weeks ago his third title in the WTCC. However, the big difference between the two disciplines has led to ‘Pechito’ Lopez to lower the possible expectations that it has generated its return to the cars, the whole time does not compete in a race car from the 2006 season of the GP2, when he climbed the single-seater Super Nova.
After winning his third title in the WTCC with eight victories and two podiums, the pilot argentine valued his arrival to Formula E. In statements to ‘Autosport’, the argentinian driver explained in this regard: “My journey in the World of Cars has been amazing, but nothing of what I did in the WTCC and will not help me here. I have a new book ahead and the need to start writing a new story. I had to change the driving style in a lot of things. there is Still a lot to learn, but I can already see my progress“.
In this aspect, ‘Pechito’ is quite cautious: “The grip, the tyres, the chassis and its weight make the car very nervous and difficult to understand. I am very happy with my long runs, which weren’t bad, but it is very difficult to know where we are because you do not know the energy they are using at that time the rivals. I have to be realistic, experience counts a lot in this championship, so I have to be careful with my lenses. I want to be competitive, to be among the first ten it would be a good start, but after a few races I want to be among the top five“.
