LYNN IN THE POINTS FOR MAHINDRA RACING IN MONACO
8 May 2021, Monaco – Mahindra Racing’s Alex Lynn finished in the points for the team in today’s Monaco E-Prix, round 7 of the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. This year, the fourth time Formula E has visited Monaco, saw teams compete on the full circuit for the first time, a modified version of the historic Grand Prix track.
In a highly competitive qualifying session around the tight and twisty circuit, Lynn and Alexander Sims qualified in 9th and 11th respectively, with the top 12 drivers separated by just half a second in group qualifying.
In a race in which overtaking was expected to be difficult, Lynn gained a position at the start up to eighth, ran as high as seventh, and then battled in the top ten throughout. In a relatively processional E-Prix, he crossed the line in ninth to collect two championship points. Unfortunately for Sims, he got hit from behind at the hairpin on the first lap and sent into the barriers, causing damage to the right-hand side of the M7Electro and forcing him into retirement.
Reigning Formula E Champion, DS Techeetah driver Antonio Felix Da Costa won the Monaco E-Prix. Rounds 8 and 9 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will take place in Puebla, Mexico on 19-20 June.
