Racing in Mexico – The Stats

Race Starts in Mexico: 10
Pole Positions: 2
Points Scoring Finishes: 6
Fastest Laps: 1

“Puebla is pretty different to anything Formula E has done before, using part of a high-speed oval, and I think it will be very interesting. It will be a high-load start to the lap and there are a lot of long corners, which we don’t usually see in this championship. We’ll be qualifying in group 3, so we are in a good position from that standpoint to be fighting for reasonable points, as is always the aim. Having the rest of the season as double-header events is nice; so much effort goes into preparation so it is good to get more in terms of opportunities to get results out of that work.”

“I’m excited to be going back racing after the mid-season break and I think it’s going to be good. It’s going to be the first time at this track for everyone and it’s a contemporary race track; it’s quite fast and flowing and open for Formula E. It’s completely different to anything we’ve raced before in Formula E so that will bring a new set of challenges. It will be hard on tyre degradation and we’ll be running in high temperatures and in high altitude. I don’t think it will be as stressful on the battery as Santiago, but it’s going to be pretty tough nonetheless.”

#94 Alex Lynn

“We’re heading to Mexico off the back of the run of races in which we scored two podiums in Rome and Valencia and a points-scoring result in Monaco, so we are ready to pick up where we left off with the objective of more podiums. We have been encouraged by our M7Electro package this season with our new ZF powertrain. For Mahindra Racing, Mexico has been the country we have visited and have had promising qualifying runs [two Poles in S4 and S5] elude us when it came to converting to race results, so we are looking to get the monkey off our back in Puebla.”
