MAHINDRA RACING IS READY TO MASTER THE STREETS OF THE SWISS CAPITAL
17 JUNE 2019, BANBURY, UK – Mahindra Racing is getting ready to go green for the eleventh time in Season 5 as the team heads to the Swiss E-Prix in Bern this Saturday. It is only the second time that the all-electric street racing series has visited Switzerland after its outing in Zurich last season and Bern is the third brand-new city to be added to the 2018/19 calendar.
Jérôme D’Ambrosio will compete in the final European leg of the 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship in his #64 M5Electro, ‘Falcon’. With three races of his rookie season left, Pascal Wehrlein will race the 14-corner, 2.750km Swiss street circuit behind the wheel of his #94 car, nicknamed ‘Electro McElectroFace’
This season’s Swiss round will take place in the capital city of Bern and the lights will go out at 18.00hrs local time on Saturday 22 June 2019. Formula E made history last year when it brought circuit racing back to Switzerland for the first time in over 60 years. Jérôme qualified for Super Pole at the inaugural Swiss E-Prix, lined-up on the front row and took the checkered flag on the podium in third.
Heading into the Swiss E-Prix, Mahindra Racing is fifth in the team championship with Jérôme D’Ambrosio and Pascal Wehrlein eighth and thirteenth respectively in the driver’s battle.
