MAHINDRA RACING RETURNS TO HAPPY HUNTING GROUND IN BERLIN
20 May 2019 – In the week that Mahindra Racing marks turning five years old since its launch, the 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship continues this Saturday, 25 May, with the BMW i Berlin E-Prix presented by CBMM Niobium, for the fifth consecutive year. Two weeks after Mahindra Racing showed its blistering race pace on the historic streets of Monaco, the squad returns to Germany for round ten of season five and Pascal Wehrlein’s home race, as well as the venue of Jérôme D’Ambrosio’s Berlin race win in season one.
Fresh from Pascal’s fourth Super Pole appearance last time out in Monaco, the German-Mauritian driver is back and ready to race at his home E-Prix in his winning Driven by Design race suit. Back in March, Mahindra Racing ran its second design competition of the season on its social media channels; to create a race suit for Pascal ahead of the Berlin race. The #94 M5Electro driver handpicked the winning design by Alex Ware himself, which he will wear when we go green in Germany later this week and present to the designer, who will be a special guest of the team in Berlin.
The bespoke circuit on the apron section of Tempelhof Airport has fond memories for Jérôme D’Ambrosio who won the inaugural race on the streets of Germany to secure his first Formula E win. Following in Jérôme’s footsteps, Mahindra Racing took its first victory and double podium in season three with Felix Rosenqvist and Nick Heidfeld at Tempelhof.
Mahindra Racing is currently fourth in the team championship with Jérôme D’Ambrosio in seventh and Pascal Wehrlein in twelfth position for the driver’s battle.
The Mahindra Racing #64 and #94 M5Electro cars will go wheel-to-wheel racing with the rest of the Formula E grid on the 2.375km, 10-corner track on Saturday 25 May 2019 at 13:04hrs local time.
