Lynn completed filming day for Jaguar ahead of Formula E return

Alex Lynn only has 50 kilometres of experience with the Jaguar Gen2 car ahead of his return to the ABB FIA Formula E championship in Rome.

After Nelson Piquet and Jaguar agreed to part ways, Lynn joined the team ahead of the Rome race and will be contesting the remainder of the season with the British team.

Although he previously raced for DS Virgin in the 2017/18 season, Lynn’s only experience in a Gen2 car was during a filming day ahead of his return.

“We had a filming day last week, a very small go where we’re limited to 50 kilometres,” he told FormulaSpy.

“It’s small but it’s something and better than nothing. We did a lot in the sim and had a lot of meetings.

“I feel like we’ve done the maximum we can do before driving it properly. It’s obviously going to take a bit of getting used to, but we’ll build up the momentum each session so it should be alright.

“I think it’s safe to say I wanted more from my last Formula E season and the team wants more this year, so from that side we match our ambitions.”

Lynn will be missing the first two rounds of the Blancpain GT Series, which he was due to compete in with R-Motorsport, but will not miss his factory Aston Martin commitments in the World Endurance Championship.

“Everything with WEC and the factory Aston Martin team has no clashes which is great, but I owe them a big thank you for allowing me to do this. I appreciate it a lot.

“I’m still doing Blancpain but I’ll just be missing the first two races. They were the ones who said ‘we understand it’s a big opportunity for you’ and I really appreciate that.”
