Mahindra Racing has confirmed today that it’s going to retain both of his current drivers for Formula E season 4. Nick Heidfeld and Felix Rosenqvist will race again for the Indian team in the upcoming season after a strong season 3, when they finished third in teams’ championship.
Mahindra Racing has announced today that both of his drivers in season 3, Félix Rosenqvist and Nick Heidfeld, will race for the team again in 2017-18 season. In this last season, the team has clearly improved. They have taken their first win (Rosenqvist in Berlin Race 1), several podiums, and an overall third place in teams’ championship.
Rosenqvist has finished third in driver’s championship and first of the Rookies. He took three pole positions, five podiums and is now involved in a long-term relationship with the Indian team. He said:
“I’m thrilled to be back for a second season in Formula E and to extend my relationship with Mahindra Racing. That was our mutual intention from the very beginning, and we’ve already completed a series of promising tests with the M4Electro in recent months. Moving into season four, I will draw on everything I learned in 2016/17 to try and lift us to the next level. It will be a massive challenge with stiff competition, but we have a solid foundation and are all fully-committed to taking the fight to the very best.”
Heidfeld has finished his second season racing for Mahindra in seventh place in the standings with five podiums. His agreement with the team has been extended for one more season. He said:
“I am proud to be part of Mahindra Racing where we have been going from strength to strength in Formula E. It’s exactly where I want to be and I am delighted to extend my contract and commitment to target even more success. I am thrilled and can’t wait to compete in my M4Electro in this ever-improving championship.”
