The imposing emergence of Lance Stroll in the orbit of
Williams F1 has slowed any option to occupy one of the seats holders to Alex Lynn. The british pilot, tester of the team of Grove and
currently enrolled in the team DAMS in GP2, he knows that the presence of Stroll
and Bottas close all the doors, so that has started to look at other
categories of face-to-2017. Ruled out a third year in GP2 and without
give up the role of a test driver of Williams, Lynn believes that you must have
at least one full program in another contest.
Between these alternatives it is exploring Alex Lynn is the Formula E. The great relationship that keeps the british driver with Jean-Paul Driot, head of the team DAMS, you can open the doors to occupy a role of the pilot development of the Renault team and.Dams and work on the Renault Z. E. 16, a vehicle of reference in the championship. However, Lynn left a very good impressions within the category electric after test in-season with the team Panasonic Jaguar training, which finally opted for Mitch Evans and Adam Carroll as pilots for its debut in Formula E.
take the role of pilot development of Renault and.Dams is not something trivial by the calendar of 2017. Sébastien Buemi, Toyota driver in the WEC and Renault in the Formula And you have to face, like many other pilots, the overlap between the 6 Hours of Nürburgring and the ePrix of New York. This fact could open the door to compete to Alex Lynn, who in turn also looks at the WEC as a possible destination. However, Lynn made his debut at the controls of the Manor #45 in the 6 Hours of Fuji, where it got the fastest lap of the category.
The goal of Alex Lynn is to finish the season with Manor, but face-to-2017 the british valued the WEC as a possible target, something that no doubt would see with good eyes Alex Wurz, the former pilot is the godfather of Lynn. The own british pilot recognises that to compete in LMP1 or GTE-Pro would be very interesting by the strength of manufacturers that are in both categories. In this aspect, his little foray with Manor in LMP2 would be a way to pick up some experience and also to show your level to draw the attention of some of these manufacturers.
