Alex Lynn suffered his first retirement of the season in Santiago de Chile, but the young Brit is hoping to bounce back in Mexico City.
After three consecutive point-scoring finishes in both races in Hong Kong, as well as the previous round in Marrakesh, DS Virgin Racing’s Alex Lynn was disappointed after his car stopped on track in the second half of the race.
Lynn said: “Yeah we had a problem with the gearbox which unfortunately forced us to stop which is a real shame because I think we had a really positive day”.
The British driver, who had started the race in P7 and was doing well in the race, added: “It’s a shame really”.
The 24-year-old was in a reflective mood when discussing the current situation, but he is not one to dwell on the past and instead is looking forward towards the upcoming round in Mexico City.
“I think honestly, we’ve had a tough run considering that we’ve always been competitive. I think we just need a few things to go our way and we need to bounce back for Mexico and push even harder every single time”.
Despite being new to the majority of the circuits in Formula E, the Brit raced at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez during shakedown of last season’s Mexico City ePrix, as then DS Virgin Racing driver José María López was flying to Mexican soil after fulfilling WEC duties.
