MAHINDRA RACING ALL SET TO TAKE THE FIGHT TO HONG KONG
Three weeks after its double-points finish in Mexico, and fresh from the third in-season test, Mahindra Racing travels to Hong Kong for the fifth round of the 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship with the aim of consolidating its lead in both the manufacturers and driver’s championship.
Mahindra Racing heads to Hong Kong with high hopes of maintaining its podium record since the city’s inaugural race in season three. Ready to challenge at the front in his #64 M5Electro, known as the flying ‘Falcon’, is the current leader in the driver’s battle, Jérôme D’Ambrosio. Meanwhile Pascal Wehrlein, energised from his second consecutive Super Pole appearance and maiden pole position in the last race, will go racing in his #94 car, Electro McElectroFace.
At the inaugural race in Hong Kong in 2016, Mahindra Racing’s Nick Heidfeld finished on the podium in third place and repeated that result in the first of last year’s double-header races, while Felix Rosenqvist took the triple honours with a perfect day in race 2 in 2017; Pole Position, race victory and fastest lap.
As preparation for the first of two Asian legs gets underway, Mahindra Racing is pleased to announce that it remains the only team in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship to be accredited by the FIA Institute’s Sustainability Programme. Based on a recent assessment, the team attained its FIA 2-Star accreditation which is the equivalent to the previous “Progress towards Excellence” rating.
