Mahindra Racing and Rosenqvist aim to retake the FIA Formula E lead in Mexico

The 2018 Mexico City ePrix will take place at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez next Saturday with Rosenqvist and Heidfeld looking to add another win

The fifth round of the 2017-18 FIA Formula E season will take place in Mexico next Saturday and Mahindra Racing, whose M4ELECTRO cars are run in collaboration with Campos Racing, is ready to keep firmly in contention for the crown.

Felix Rosenqvist and Nick Heidfeld made a strong start to the season as the Swedish driver notched up two wins in Hong Kong and Morocco. German racer “Quick” Heidfeld also brought the first podium in the opening race held in the streets of Hong Kong. The M4ELECTRO cars are proved race winners and Mexico is expected to be a continuation of their previous form. The Mexico City ePrix uses part of the iconic Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez layout with seating for around 40,000 people and is approximately 2.092km in length.

After four rounds, Rosenqvist lies second in the Drivers’ standings on 66 points, only 5 points behind Jean-Éric Vergne. Heidfeld sits 8th on 21 points. Meanwhile Mahindra Racing lies second in the Teams’ standings on 87 points, a mere two points behind Techeetah.

The Mexico City ePrix race will take place at 16.03 (local time) on Saturday.
