MUMBAI: Mahindra Racing has announced that Alex Lynn will join Alexander Sims in driving its M7Electro, creating an all-British driver line-up at the outfit for Season 7 of the ABB FIA Formula E.
Having unveiled Alexander Sims back in August, Mahindra Racing has confirmed Alex Lynn will join the fold after an impressive stint with the team at the Season 6 finale in Berlin.
The 27-year-old is a proven winner, with highlights including the 2014 GP3 Series crown, and victories in prestigious events including the Macau Grand Prix, Sebring 12 Hours and Le Mans 24 Hours. He is a multiple race winner in GP2 Series and has Formula E experience, having competed in a total of 27 rounds, with his best result of fifth coming at the Tempelhof Airport Circuit earlier this year.
“I’m incredibly excited to be back for Season 7 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and to be a part of Mahindra Racing," said Lynn. "I’ve had the opportunity of driving the M7Electro on numerous test days and we’re all pretty proud of what we’ve come up with.
"We won’t know our competitiveness fully until the lights go out in Santiago, but we are here to consistently fight for wins and podiums; that’s what the team go racing for and so do I. From that side, I’m extremely excited and focused to be delivering the results that this hard-working team deserves.”
Part of the team since Season 2, Nick Heidfeld remains an integral part of Mahindra Racing and continues in his role as its official test and reserve driver and special advisor.
