Mahindra Racing’s Alexander Sims started race two of the New York ePrix doubleheader weekend on Sunday from ninth place and worked his way through the field to finish the race in sixth place and speaking following the race he commented saying:

“Yesterday was frustrating with the puncture. I think I got hit by Nato, but it was a bit of a racing incident, which was unfortunate as we were clawing positions back after struggling with pace at the start. Today was a solid race and I’m pleased with it – we had a lot of clean air so we just did our own thing and brought the car home. Normally the race is strong for us so we have to understand why we struggled in the races this weekend and keep working for London and Berlin.”

Alex Lynn started the race in eighth place and came home in ninth place to score two points for the team. Speaking following the race, the Englishman commented saying:

“It was a shame yesterday not to score a point after starting from third – I was super happy with qualifying and the Super Pole lap. Today was a solid result, with a sixth and ninth place finish for us, in a weekend where we struggled with race pace. This championship is so tight; for our cars to finish ahead of all the factory BMW’s, Audis, Nissans and Mercedes shows the quality and competitiveness in the field. There’s a lot of work to be done ahead of London as we want to be back up there and our attention turns immediately to that.”

Mahindra Racing team owner Dilbagh Gill commented saying:

“Formula E only gets more and more competitive, so every point is so valuable. Yesterday was frustrating for us but we had a solid day today to score points with both cars. We now need to work hard ahead of London to ensure we can convert our strong qualifying pace into race results. With four races remaining, there’s still a lot to play for and it’s our objective to be right in the mix and round out the season in the strongest possible way.”
