6 April 2021, Banbury, UK – The 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship continues this week with rounds 3 and 4 of the seventh season of the all-electric street racing series taking place on the streets of Rome, Italy. Alexander Sims and Alex Lynn will field the #29 and #94 M7Electros respectively at the first European race of the season.

After two previous visits to Rome, Formula E has unveiled an almost completely renovated circuit layout for the third iteration of the Rome E-Prix. The new track retains the tricky characteristics that Rome has become known for, with undulations and elevation changes and surface variations. It features technical, tight twisty sections as well as a number of fast, sweeping corners, making it one of the most challenging tracks on the calendar. With 19 turns, the 3.385km circuit is one of the longest that competitors take on in Formula E.

Ahead of the race weekend, Mahindra Racing’s Official Timekeeper partner Maurice Lacroix has unveiled a Special Edition watch range, inspired by the race team. The three new designs, which are bespoke versions of their current AIKON model, each boast impressive features making them ideal for wearing both on and off the track. The luxury Swiss brand has led the way in the watchmaking industry for over 40 years, always maintaining the values of innovation, affordability and value. See the range in detail at

Round 3 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will take place on Saturday 10 April at 4pm local time, with Round 4 beginning at the earlier time of 1pm on Sunday 11 April.


“The old Rome track was pretty cool, but this looks even more impressive; particularly the uphill sweeping section which is really high speed. In qualifying mode that should be pretty spectacular from the driver’s point of view. That, mixed with a lot of technical sections should provide decent racing and overtaking opportunities. It looks like it will be pretty tough on energy, so we’ll have to do a decent amount of coasting and re-gen which is always good for close racing. It’s really difficult to know what to expect, but if we can get some decent points that’s really what I’m after for every race this season.”

#29 Alexander Sims

“I’m super motivated ahead of the Rome. It will be really interesting this year as it’s pretty much a new track. I’ve been spending some time in the simulator at the factory with my engineers and, from the work that we’ve done, I think it’s going to be a circuit that I enjoy. We’re heading to a very technical track that has some really tight and twisty parts with a lot of ninety-degree corners and also a very fast section. I’m sure it will provide the usual brilliant action that Formula E is known for. I firmly believe we’ve got a competitive car so we will head to Rome focusing on ensuring that we produce the best weekend that we can.”

#94 Alex Lynn

“We head to Rome very single-minded in our focus and determination to deliver the results that we believe we are capable of. We have a very talented team who have done a huge amount of preparation for this season and we saw positives in terms of qualifying and race pace in Diriyah. A double header means double the opportunities and we’re enthused to get to Italy and get the momentum going on our campaign.”
