MAHINDRA RACING WRAPS UP 2019/20 FORMULA E SEASON IN BERLIN
13 August 2020, Berlin, Germany – The 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship wrapped up this evening after ‘The Season Six Finale’, which saw six races take place in just nine days on three different circuit configurations. In the fiercely contested event, which saw teams racing against one another after a five month suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mahindra Racing fielded Jérôme D’Ambrosio and Alex Lynn, the latter of which made his debut for the team.
Across the six races, Mahindra Racing was able to notch up five Super Pole appearances (three for Alex, two for Jérôme) and five points scoring results (three for Alex, two for Jérôme), including a fifth placed finish for Alex in Round 10, which marked the best result of his Formula E career.
Ahead of the event, Team Principal Dilbagh Gill tested positive for COVID-19. Team Manager David Clarke and Chief Engineer Toni Cuquerella deputised in the garage whilst Dilbagh had a direct communications link from his hotel room where he self-isolated for the duration of the event. All other team members received a negative result and Dilbagh has now been released from quarantine and is healthy and well.
At the end of an unprecedented and challenging season, Mahindra Racing finished in ninth position in the teams’ championship with 49 points, leapfrogging Venturi Racing after round 10. Jérôme D’Ambrosio took 16th in the drivers’ standings with 19 points and Alex Lynn, with just six races contested this season, moved up to finish just behind his teammate in 17th with 16 points.
