Alex Lynn is hoping to waste no time in getting to grips with the new track as Chile hosts its first Formula E race on Saturday.
The Oxford based racer and DS Virgin Racing team-mate Sam Bird – the championship’s only all-British pairing – are looking to build on their positive start to the season at Chile’s first-ever international motor race.
Lynn, who has never been to the South American country, said: “We had a frustrating race in Marrakesh [Lynn was involved in a crash early on], so we’re keen to put that behind us and come out fighting again in Chile.
“I’m hoping we can get up to speed with the new track layout quickly and be in the mix from the off.”
As well as a new track to contend with in round four, for the first time in Formula E’s history there will also be no minimum pit stop time, adding a new challenge to the racing strategy.
Earlier this week Formula E digitally unveiled its all-new season five Formula E car, ahead of the full reveal in March.
The car will be able to last the entire race, negating the need for driver car changes, and will possess almost twice the power of the current racer.
Lynn said: “I think the new car personifies everything that Formula E is about; futuristic, fast thinking and cutting edge in the world of motor racing. It’s the perfect car to take Formula E to the next level.”
