Formula E: Mahindra Racing back on podium as Alexander Sims finishes second in Rome

Mahindra Racing returned to the podium in style today as Alexander Sims scored second in the Rome E-Prix, marking the team’s first podium powered by new Powertrain partner ZF.

Alex Lynn also opened his points account with a solid performance in Saturday’s incident-packed race.

Season 7 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship continued this weekend with rounds three and four held on the streets of Rome.

Having raced in the city twice before, Formula E raced on a newly configured circuit, which provided all the usual unpredictable and highly competitive racing that the all-electric street racing series is famed for.

After a disrupted start to the day on Saturday, with red flags during both practice sessions, Sims and Lynn hit the track to qualify on the newly reconfigured circuit, the longest on the Season 7 calendar.

Lynn secured a seventh row start from 13th, with Sims in the row behind, beginning from 15th.

In a race that both started and ended under the safety car, and saw a third of the field retire, Lynn was able to avoid incidents that peppered the 45 minutes and open his account for the season, collecting four points for taking the chequered flag in a solid eighth place.

He also finished Saturday’s E-Prix as the top regen driver, demonstrating the most efficient use of energy.

Unfortunately, Sims was forced into retirement on lap two through no fault of his own when he was hit from behind, causing damage to the M7Electro that meant he could not continue.
