Mahindra Racing say they have understood what happened last time out in Buenos Aires and are looking to bounce back at this weekend’s Mexico ePrix.

The team had an impressive start to the season, scoring podiums in each of the first two races.

But that changed last time out as a Battery Management System issue meant that Felix Rosenqvist was delayed in starting his second car, while Nick Heidfeld incurred a penalty for going under the minimum pit stop time.

It meant both cars finished well outside the points, but Team Principal Dilbagh Gill said that the team understand the issues that occured, and are looking to now get back to scoring solid points in Mexico.

Gill said, “Mexico City provides us with another chance to put our knowledge from last year to good use and bring home a good result for the team.

“We’ve understood what happened in Buenos Aires and will be applying that learning to ensure we maximise our results in Mexico.”

Rosenqvist also said he was looking to move on from the problems experienced last time, and believed that a good haul of points could see the team move back into the championship fight.

“We’ve had a great start to the season and the M3Electro has been strong at most circuits, but unfortunate events have prevented us from scoring even more points,” Rosenqvist said.

“We will be focused on scoring as many points as possible in Mexico without taking any risks to get back in the championship fight.”
