MAHINDRA RACING LOOKING TO SPARKLE IN GLAMOROUS MONTE CARLO
7 May 2019 – The tight and winding streets of Monte Carlo play host to round nine of the 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship. The Monaco E-Prix takes place this Saturday, 11 May, and is the third time the all-electric street racing series has visited the streets of the glamorous principality. Jérôme D’Ambrosio and Pascal Wehrlein will pilot the two M5Electros for Mahindra Racing.
Monaco has been the jewel in the crown of street racing for the past 90 years as it has played host to the famous Grand Prix since 1929. Formula E made its debut there in its first season in 2015, and has visited every other year since. The last time the series raced in Monte Carlo in season three, Mahindra Racing secured a third-place podium with Nick Heidfeld. The #64 and #94 M5Electro Formula E cars will go wheel-to-wheel racing on the 1.765km, 12-corner track around the iconic and historical streets of Monaco including its famous harbour front.
In one of the most unpredictable seasons in Formula E history, Mahindra Racing is currently fourth in the team championship with Jérôme D’Ambrosio still right in the midst of the fight in the driver battle, with just 16 points separating the top five drivers.
