Mahindra targeting big points in Buenos Aires

Following their podium success in Hong Kong and Marrakesh, Mahindra Racing are aiming for another points haul at the Buenos Aires ePrix.

A strong start to the season has seen Mahindra take 36 points from the opening two rounds, with Nick Heidfeld securing third place at the season-opening Hong Kong ePrix.

Felix Rosenqvist then secured pole position and a third-place finish at the Marrakesh ePrix in only his second Formula E race.

With the Indian team sitting joint-second in the Teams’ Championship with Abt Schaeffler Audi Sport, team principal Dilbagh Gill is aiming to maintain their position in the table by out-scoring their rivals in Buenos Aires:

“We are travelling to Buenos Aires feeling confident following a busy mid-season break for Mahindra Racing. This time has allowed us to reflect on the first two races of the season and put in place the tools to help take our team to the front of the grid.

“Based on the combined experience of Nick and the team of the Puerto Madero circuit from the past two seasons, and Felix’s ability to hit the ground running, we are in a strong position to consolidate our second position in the Teams’ Championship and a good double points finish is what we would like to take away.”

Nick Heidfeld added that he is hoping the team have made gains during the winter period:

“I am excited to go back to race in Buenos Aires for the third time, especially with the package Mahindra Racing has this season.

“We know that we can be up the front already from the first two races with my podium in Hong Kong and Felix’s performance in Marrakesh.

“The team has worked hard during the break and I hope this will give us another step forward. We shall be even better prepared to bring everything together for a good result in Buenos Aires.”
