Karun Chandhok joined over half the Formula E field to take part in Le Mans testing last weekend; setting the fasting time in the LMP2 field for Murphy Prototypes ORECA-Nissan.
But the Mahindra Racing driver can’t wait to get back into Formula E action this weekend at the Moscow ePrix and is anticipating a great race:
“I have good memories of Moscow – I went there in 2011 for an F1 demo and the turnout was incredible. I’ve been on the simulator and the brackdrop with the Kremlin will make for amazing viewing and racing – especially coupled with some good overtaking opportunities and straights on track. Overall we know we have a bit of work to do this weekend to recover from Berlin but we’ll have a reset now and approach the final three races with the intention of fighting higher up the grid.”
It has been a difficult season for fan-favourites Mahindra Racing, with Bruno Senna and Karun Chandhok sat 10th and 15th in the WDC standings respectively; whilst the team sit down in 8th in the WCC. Their focus now has to be on learning as much as they can ahead of summer testing at Donington Park and the start of the 2015/16 season. However the fans will undoubtedly be out in full support for them at this months London ePrix finale!
