Among the leader brands in the ePrix competition ranks Bmw, which for the sixth Formula season has engaged the 23 years old German Maximilian Günther.
The pilot has recently expressed very positive impressions about the simulator: «It is the best instrument to get ready for races and to develop the car. We can try whenever we want and repeat the same things, to compare, then, the data we survey».
Technical remarks were explained by Rudolf Dittrich, General Manager of the development of Bmw motorsport vehicles: «With the simulator we can test things that we could hardly do on the track, besides testing on different tracks in the same day, imagining any possible scenario». The simulator is important for pilots but also for the entire team, especially after the reduction of official test days.
During the simulation, the pilot wears a helmet for both safety reasons, since the system is in motion, and to have the same field of view as during the race.
