MAHINDRA RACING IS READY TO GO IN MEXICO
Monday 10 February 2020, Banbury, UK – Round four of the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship will take place in Mexico City on Saturday 15 February at the modified 2.606km Autodrómo Hermanos Rodríguez. Mahindra Racing’s Pascal Wehrlein and Jerome D’Ambrosio will be in action for the squad in the #94 and #64 M6Electro’s, with their objectives set firmly on building on the team’s performance so far this season as the all-electric racing series moves to the Americas.
Pascal Wehrlein, who claimed his first Super Pole appearance of the 2019/20 season and scored 12 points at the previous race in Santiago, returns to Mexico where he took his maiden Pole Position and led the race until the final corner in his rookie year last season.
