Stoffel, you took the most pole positions last season. How difficult is it to string everything together perfect- ly over a single lap?
"It’s not easy, for sure! First of all, Formula E qualifying consists of just one lap, which puts a lot of additional pressure on drivers to perform, to deliver, because you only have one shot at it. But still, it’s something I really love. I enjoy the pressure, the adrenalin you get from it. Putting the lap together is crucial, because you are of- ten forced to go very slowly on the outlaps, so you don’t get a feel for the grip that might be available in the first corner. As often as not, the way you approach Turn 1 is a kind of a complete guess in terms of where to brake, how much grip there is and how much speed you can carry through into the corner. Once you have some kind of reference point, then the rest of the lap becomes almost a little easier but it’s still very much a high pres- sure environment."
