MAHINDRA RACING READY TO ROMANCE THE PARIS E-PRIX
23 April 2019 – Two weeks after the 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship headed to the first European race of the season in Rome, Mahindra Racing is travelling to France for the eighth round of season five. The squad returns to the historic cobbled streets of Les Invalides in Paris, with Jérôme D’Ambrosio leading the driver’s championship and Mahindra Racing fighting at the top for the team battle. Pascal Wehrlein continues to pilot the #94 car in his rookie Formula E year.
The 1.93km Circuit des Invalides is set in the heart of the City of Light. It might be the shortest track on the calendar, with 14 turns, but it is far from the easiest when it comes to overtaking. Formula E returns to the inner-city battleground for the second European leg of the season which features stunning views of the city in the background at every turn including the renowned Eiffel Tower and the iconic golden dome.
This year sees Formula E going green for the fourth time in a row in France. The team will be looking to build on its strongest performance in Paris to date; a third place podium finish in season three with Nick Heidfeld.
It’s lights out for the Paris E-Prix at 16:04hrs local time on Saturday 27 April 2019.
