Alex Lynn, GP3 Series Champion in 2014 and the Macau Grand Prix and Sebring 12 Hours winner, is all set to join the Mahindra Racing team. The 26-year-old Brit will pilot the #94 M6Electro racecar for the remainder of the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship alongside Jérôme D’Ambrosio in the #64 car.
“I’m really excited to represent Mahindra in Berlin. I have high ambitions in this championship that match what Mahindra wants to achieve. I just can’t wait to get started," Lynn said about the development.
Echoing Lynn’s sentiments, Mahindra team boss Dilbagh Gill said, "Alex has achieved some fantastic highlights in his career already and we’re confident that together we can get results in the remainder of Season 6.”
Demonstrating his versatility as a racing driver, Lynn achieved successes in both single-seater and sportscar categories.
He achieved early single-seater championship titles in Formula Renault UK Winter Cup and Formula Renault UK. In 2013, he took victory at the renowned Macau Grand Prix, and then took the overall championship win the following year in the GP3 Series in his rookie campaign.
He is a multiple race winner in the GP2 series and fulfilled a development driver role for the Williams Racing Formula 1 Team. He has Formula E experience having raced with both DS Virgin Racing and Jaguar Racing, and has competed in a total of 21 races, with his best result coming at Punta del Este where he finished sixth.
"It’s not easy to jump in mid-season, especially with the unique way we will be running the races in Berlin, but Alex has a hunger, talent and experience that we are sure will pay dividends fast,” added Mr. Gill.
