Sebastian Buemi says that Renault e.dams' advantage over the rest of the field is very clear as the Swiss driver took his third victory from three races yesterday.
Buemi came from third to first in six laps and controlled the pace right until the finish line. His gap at the top of the drivers standings is now 29 points, having taken maximum points from the first three rounds.
“I think it’s clear that we have right now the best car, the best package. That obviously helps but it’s not everything,” Buemi said. “You need to be doing good races, a good car and be a good team. I think as a package we’ve come out a bit better than the rest. We know that’s not going to last forever. If we can get as many points as possible as long as it lasts, that would be good.”
Buemi says that the victory wasn't as straightforward as it looked, as he ran into certain problems after the pit-stop in his second car.
“Today with the heat, there were many other things we had to manage, particularly the temperature of the battery,” Buemi commented. “We had some small issues on the brakes. It was quite difficult to actually drive the car. “The car was not braking straight.”
Before Saturday, Buemi hadn't won the Buenos Aires ePrix before, and he is now happy to tick the venue off his list.
“I’m quite happy because the first race here two years ago, I had pole and I did a mistake and ended up in the wall. The second year I started last and finished second. In the end to get a win here is a great achievement. This race has never really gone our way but today it did. We’ll try to enjoy that a little bit and then look to Mexico.”
