Clapham’s Alexander Sims set for Mexico City E-Prix

Clapham racing driver Alexander Sims returns to action in The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship this weekend for the 2022 Mexico City E-Prix.

The Championship returns to Mexico City following a two-year absence due to the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez circuit being used as a COVID-19 vaccination centre during the early stages of the pandemic.

Its use as a vaccination centre adds to the rich history of this track, which is one of the few traditional circuits Formula E races on and is also used in Formula 1 for the Mexico Grand Prix.

The 110,000-capacity circuit hosted its first Formula 1 Grand Prix in 1962 and took its name when Mexican driver Ricardo Rodríguez, the youngest Formula 1 driver ever to race for Ferrari, died during the first day of unofficial practice of the race.

The race has one of the most electric atmospheres on the Formula E calendar and, with the city known for its adoring motorsport fan base, the television audience at home can expect a thrilling spectacle.

Mahindra Racing’s Sims left the season opening Diriyah E-Prix empty-handed and will be targeting his first points of the season in Mexico City.

“Having got off to a less than ideal start to the season in Riyadh, I’m confident that we can bounce back and have a better result in Mexico,” Sims said. “I love the track and the atmosphere with the fans and it should provide an exciting, energy-limited race. Hopefully our preparations allow us to arrive in good shape and fine tune things in practice to be best prepared for the quali and race.”

Catch all the action for Round 3 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in Mexico City this Saturday 12 February live on Eurosport 2 from 21.30 GMT.
