After only managing to secure four points over two events in Diriyah, the pressure is on Mahindra racing to improve in Mexico City but it both drivers are confident and believe they can move on from last week’s set back.

After recording a fourteenth place finish and a DNF in his last two races respectively, Alexander Sims does not seem shaken by the poor start as he said, “Having got off to a less than ideal start to the season in Riyadh, I’m confident that we can bounce back and have a better result in Mexico”.

Oliver Rowland may not have had the best start he could have hoped for after a non-finish in the first event he did manage to secure an eighth place finish to get himself off the mark in terms of points. He will look to build off this and improve as the season goes on and sees this weekend as the perfect opportunity.

The confidence already appears to be growing as he said, “It’s a bit cliché but Diriyah really did have a mix of highs and lows. The good thing is that a lot of the lows were avoidable, and, with the highs, we have shown we have the potential to get results. In Mexico, and going forward, we need to be clean and consistently do what we know we are capable of.”

With a lot of eyes on them to improve, Mahindra Racing will be hoping a change of scenery will be just what they need. Although, fourteen starts in Mexico have only returned seven point scoring finishes, team principal Dilbagh Gill says: “As a team we love visiting Mexico – the atmosphere and passion of the fans is electric.

“It’s not always been a place that brings us much luck but it’s time to end the curse and come away with a good points haul. After a trip to Puebla last year, we return to Mexico City, which is not only a fantastic location for a race but signifies that the pandemic is slowly coming to an end. We look forward to putting on a show for the Mexican fans after a difficult few years for everyone around the globe.”
