Jerome D’Ambrosio and Pascal Wehrlein both finished in the top three of Free Practice 1 at the Mexico City E-Prix. Did you know that this was the first time that both Mahindra Racing drivers have finished in the top three since the second race at the New York City E-Prix in Season 3? You do now!
Not only is Mahindra Racing the only Indian team competing in the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship, we’re the only squad to get a driver into Super Pole every race so far this season. Jerome qualified for Super Pole both times in the Season 6 double-header opener at the Diriyah E-Prix, with Pascal Wehrlein maintaining that record in the Santiago and Mexico City E-Prix to make it four out of four.
Jerome’s fierce comeback to claim the last championship point in the Mexico City E-Prix means he is now the sixth highest scoring Formula E driver of all time, climbing ahead of Nico Prost. Round four of the 2019/20 season was also the eighth race in which the Belgian has gained 10 or more positions to equal the record set by Lucas Di Grassi. His teammate Pascal also moved through the field after starting at the back of the grid and gained 10 or more race positions which means Mahindra Racing is only the third team to have both drivers gain 10 positions or more in the same E-Prix.
Jerome’s championship point in Mexico City means he has also entered the Mahindra Racing hall of fame by becoming the fifth driver to have scored 70 points for the team. Guess what? No other team in the history of the electric racing series has had more than three drivers score 70 points for them.
Finally, from the qualifying groups in Santiago through to the Mexico City E-Prix, Pascal has now finished the last eight consecutive sessions in the top 10. The only other driver to have had the same length streak in Season 6 is Alexander Sims from BMW i Andretti Motorsport. Can the German make it nine consecutive sessions in the fifth round of the 2019/20 season? Stay tuned to find out!
Mahindra Racing will return to its happy hunting ground in Morocco as the Marrakesh E-Prix takes place on Saturday 29 February 2020.
