After ending the Diriyah ePrix upside down after a crash with Mitch Evans at the end of February, Alex Lynn returns to the cockpit of his Mahindra Racing car for this weekend’s Rome ePrix aiming to get his season properly underway.
The British racer failed to finish both races in Saudi Arabia, with his exit in race two spectacular as he clipped both Evans’ Jaguar Racing car and the wall before sliding upside down into the barriers. He was lucky to escape without injury, with the television cameras not picking up the incident at the time.
Lynn says he is ‘super motivated’ for the second round of the FIA Formula E championship this weekend, and he feels that Mahindra Racing will go into the weekend confident that it will be a spectacular and competitive one for the outfit.
“I’m super motivated ahead of the Rome,” said Lynn on the official Mahindra Racing website. “It will be really interesting this year as it’s pretty much a new track.
“I’ve been spending some time in the simulator at the factory with my engineers and, from the work that we’ve done, I think it’s going to be a circuit that I enjoy. We’re heading to a very technical track that has some really tight and twisty parts with a lot of ninety-degree corners and also a very fast section.
“I’m sure it will provide the usual brilliant action that Formula E is known for. I firmly believe we’ve got a competitive car so we will head to Rome focusing on ensuring that we produce the best weekend that we can.”
