Sebastian Buemi heads into the Berlin weekend on a high note as he leads the driver standings by 43 points. From the six races that have been held so far this season, Buemi has come out victorious in five and has made quite a buffer to main rival Lucas di Grassi.

This weekend, Formula E is in Germany, with two races featuring in the weekend, one on Saturday and the next on Sunday. He claims that having two races in a weekend is both an advantage and a disadvantage. 

"Expectations are the same as usual. You have to try to have a good car in the morning during free practice sessions. We must not make mistakes and we will fight for victory. Having two races in the weekend is both an advantage and a disadvantage. If we do a bad race on Saturday, we have the opportunity to improve on Sunday and start on a better feeling.

"Nevertheless, chaining a second race means more stress and fatigue and so it may be a little easier to make mistakes on Sunday. That is why we will do our best to fight and get the maximum points."
