Biography

Alexander Sims embarked on a new journey with Mahindra Racing for 2020/21 and returns for Season 8 with the Indian outfit. The Brit scored a debut victory in Season 6 and became the first driver to claim three consecutive Julius Baer Pole Positions, following a hat-trick starting in New York City in 2018/19 and then in the Diriyah double-header last season.

Sims graduated to Formula E after years as a BMW works driver in GT racing, where he raced with his former teammate Antonio Felix da Costa.

Starting his racing career in karts in 1998, Sims went on to clinch the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award for promising young British drivers ten years later. The following year, the British driver progressed to Formula 3, where he started to combine single-seater driving with GT and sportscar racing in series such as Blancpain Endurance, British GT and 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Making his debut in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship ahead of the 2018/19 season for BMW i Andretti Motorsport, the British driver set the fastest times during pre-season testing for two out of the three days. With a self-declared interest in renewable energy and electric cars, Sims is well placed to race for a manufacturer that prides itself on it's hybrid and all-electric cars.

After a successful debut season, which saw the Brit clinch his first podium in the all-electric series in the final race of the 2018/19 season, Sims continued with BMW for a second season, this time alongside Maximilian Guenther. The Brit recommenced his rise in the all-electric with a streak of Julius Baer Pole Positions in Diriyah and his debut win around the desert circuit.

For 2020/21, Sims jumped across to Mahindra Racing, but a string of five retirements in 11 races stunted his progress after an encouraging podium in Rome. He wound up ninth in the standings and will be aiming to see out the Gen2 era on a high.
