My grandparents were born there, I have an Italian passport and plenty of Italian blood running in my veins. The track looks incredibly challenging: fast sections, slow sections, several overtaking opportunities – the fans are going to experience a real Formula E highlight. A look at the championship standings shows that we've got a lot to win and little to lose. I'm going to give my all to clinch my first victory this season and to make the many fans and guests of Audi proud."
