MAHINDRA RACING MONACO E-PRIX PREVIEW
• Monaco is the next stop of the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship
• Round 7 to take place on a brand new, longer circuit configuration – an adaption of the Formula 1 circuit
4 May 2021, Banbury, UK – Fresh from its recent podiums in Rome and Valencia, Mahindra Racing will be back in action again this weekend for round 7 of the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship on the hallowed racing streets of Monaco. Alexander Sims and Alex Lynn will drive the #29 and #94 M7Electros respectively for the Indian marque.
This season will see the fourth edition of the Monaco E-Prix, with the event in the Principality taking place every other year. In the second edition, Mahindra Racing’s Nick Heidfeld finished on the podium in third, and last time out Pascal Wehrlein took the Fastest Lap accolade for the squad.
For the 2021 Monaco E-Prix, teams will be racing on a much longer circuit than has previously been used, with the series moving to an adapted version of the full Formula 1 circuit that weaves its way around the harbour and through the streets of arguably the most iconic racing circuit in the world. Alexander Sims has driven the shorter circuit in 2019, whilst Alex Lynn has both Formula E experience on the track from the same year, plus previous experience on the longer track from his GP2 Series years, with a fourth and fifth place finish to his name in his second year in the F1 feeder series.
Round 7 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will take place on Saturday 8 May at 4pm local time.
