23-year-old Alex Lynn brings a wealth of experience and success in single-seater racing, having won the Formula Renault UK & GP3 titles alongside multiple GP2 race wins and a Macau race win together with his recent sports car debut and development role within F1.
Speaking of the wider series, Lynn also stated: “Formula E is arguably the most competitive motor racing championship in the world, with the highest calibre of drivers. As a driver I want to be competing in the top series, which is why I’ve been trying so hard to get into Formula E, and ‘DS Virgin was my first choice. So I’m delighted to have signed a deal with DS Virgin Racing!”
DS Virgin Racing intends to use Alex in development and testing year round, benefitting both car development and driver preparation alike in the role. Speaking of the position, Lynn said: “I like the combination of street racing along with the challenge of energy management. I think this series is going to suit me down to the ground. I look forward to working with Sam and Jose in testing and development of the cars and at the DS Performance sim in Satory.”
