Mahindra Racing’s Alexander Sims is looking forward to his home race in London this weekend and speaking ahead of the London ePrix at the ExCel Arena he said:
“This will be quite a different circuit to the majority that we’ve raced on this season, and we’re expecting it to be less of an energy sensitive race. It has quite short straights and a lot of technical sections, which will be challenging in terms of qualifying – a clean qualy lap is going to be tough and very important, but good fun. It still feels slightly surreal that we’re going to be racing in London; it’s going to be nice to race near the heart of the city.”
Alex Lynn commented saying:
This weekend is going to be a really unique one for Formula E. The track is tight and twisty with lots of corners and, for the first time, we’re going to be racing on a track that is both indoor and outdoor. Qualifying is going to be key for this race and we’ve shown that’s a strength of ours; I’ve had five Super Pole appearances and eight top ten starts this season. It’s going to be special to race in my home city for the first time and I’m really excited about it, I can’t wait to hit the track in London.
DILBAGH GILL team owner and team principal commented saying:
“The penultimate venue of this season’s championship is brand new to all of us and is the unique indoor/outdoor venue at London ExCel. It’s fantastic to return to London since we last raced in the UK capital at the end of Season 2 at Battersea, but this location will provide a new challenge. Our focus is on putting together a solid weekend, delivering in each session and making that return to the podium, especially with this being the home race of both of our drivers.”
