STRONG THREE DAY VALENCIA TEST FOR SIMS AND ROWLAND
The Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia played host to three days of FIA ABB Formula E World Championship testing that saw both Mahindra Racing drivers regularly run in the top ten, including Oliver finishing the third session in P4.
During the first and only group test ahead of the new season, Oliver amassed 187 laps over the five sessions in the M7Electro, whilst Alexander accumulated 217 laps of the 3.376km circuit.
Alexander’s best lap came in the final session when he achieved a 1:26.107, just 0.344 seconds off the fastest time. Oliver showed his pace in Sessions 1 and 3, and his overall fastest lap was just 0.09 seconds behind Alexander’s.
The pre-season test also provided the chance for the whole grid to simulate the new qualifying format for Season 8.
The British pairing and the whole Mahindra Racing team now turn their attention to Rounds 1 and 2 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, taking place in Saudi Arabia on 28-29 January 2022.
