Coughton's Alexander Sims apologises for his race-ending crash at Mexico City E-Prix

ALEXANDER Sims has apologised to Mahindra Racing after a collision with the wall meant the Mexico City E-Prix was over before it even began.

Qualifying had gone well for the Coughton racer who narrowly missed out on the newly-introduced duels format by 0.03s.

While the race ended early for Sims, team-mate Oliver Rowland would come home 16th after the gamble to take an aggressive strategy did not pay off.

Reflecting on a difficult day in Mexico, Sims said: “Qualifying went reasonably well and we were ready to climb through the pack in the race.

“But, because of a small mistake early on it was over before it began. I’d like to apologise to the team – it was an error on my part and they didn’t get to show what we can do.”

The next round of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship heads to Rome for a double-header on 9th and 10th April.
