Alex Lynn has been confirmed as the pilot of reservation and development of the team DS Virgin Racing of Formula E. The british, who had already shown their desire to be part of the category of single-seaters-electric FIA, happens to have an important role in DS Virgin, where in addition to the exercise of substitute José María ‘Pechito’ Lopez and Sam Bird against any eventuality, work in the development of the single-seater of the season 2017/18. Lynn would have signed a multi year with the formation led by Alex Tai, after having rung with force to enroll in Renault and.Dams.

Alex Lynn recognizes that the tests made with Jaguar at Donington during the official test of pre-season will have helped us greatly to be able to join the team DS Virgin as reserve driver. In this aspect, the british pilot does not close the doors to its 23 years and still working to be able to have a parallel program in the WEC, a category in which already debuted at the end of last season with the team Manor. All in all, the champion of GP3 in 2014 has unveiled its options for the World of Resistance.

In this aspect, Alex Lynn will need to choose with intelligence. The new role that it will play in DS Virgin Racing will open the doors of power to debut in the Formula E this year, precisely because of the coincidences with the calendar of the WEC. However, Jose Maria ‘Pechito’ Lopez and Sam Bird are the pilots holders of DS Virgin and their theoretical programs with Toyota and Ferrari in the WEC to come into conflict with the ePrix of Mexico City and New York. While the first date matching would be esquivada by both it is likely that Lynn will be able to compete in the ePrix of New York.
