A highly-experienced single-seater and sports car driver, Alexander Sims joins Mahindra Racing ahead of Season 7 of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.
Sims has been involved in Formula E since the series’ inception in 2014, initially testing cars before securing a race seat in Season Five and once again demonstrated his versatility as a racing driver. His highlights in his first season were a pole position and second-place finish in New York. Sims had an impressive start to his second season, taking pole positions for both races of the opening round in Saudi Arabia and taking his maiden win in race two. It also made him the first driver to take three consecutive pole positions in Formula E.
As a winner of multiple championships, Alex joined Mahindra Racing for the Season Six Finale; three double-header events in Berlin, in August 2020, which wrapped up the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship. He was then announced in November 2020 as a full-time driver for the team for Season 7.
As well as his move to Mahindra Racing in 2020, the year saw him score a class win in the prestigious Le Mans 24 hours.
