MAHINDRA RACING AIMS FOR DOUBLE POINTS FINISH IN SANYA
Less than two weeks since Mahindra Racing’s 50th race in Hong Kong, the squad returns for the second and final Asian leg of the season this weekend. Ready to bring the fight to the sixth round of the 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship at the inaugural Sanya E-Prix will be Jérôme D’Ambrosio and Pascal Wehrlein.
Sanya is one of three brand new locations for season five and it’s also the first time Formula E returns to mainland China since the Beijing E-Prix in seasons one and two. Located in southern Hainan, the E-Prix will take place on an 11 corner, 2.236km track held against the stunning backdrop of Haitang Bay.
Mahindra Racing has previously finished inside the top five in China including fifth position with Karun Chandhok in 2014 followed by a podium finish with Nick Heidfeld in 2015. Mahindra Racing heads to Sanya third in the team’s championship with Jérôme second in the driver’s fight and the team is looking to capitalise in Sanya, with the objective of both cars finishing in the points.
The Sanya E-Prix will take place on Saturday 23 March 2019 at 15.04hrs local time.
