The 24-year-old made his debut in July’s New York ePrix and scored a surprise pole position for the first race of the doubleheader event. Technical issues meant he failed to finish either race, but Lynn feels the experience gained from that weekend will prove invaluable and he wants to match teammate Sam Bird’s pace from the start.
“There are a lot of rookies joining the championship this year, and I’m one of them. Having already done one race weekend, it sets up my learning curve quite nicely. I’m excited and learning every day that I’m in the car.
“Obviously, I have a fantastic teammate in Sam who’s competed in every single race in Formula E; he has a wealth of knowledge, and I’m trying to extract as much as I can.
Lynn joins a DS Virgin team aiming to challenge for the title, but he admits the team fell short of expectations last year and thinks qualifying is an area for improvement.
“We didn’t as a team produce the best results we could have done, but it was better to have the upward curve at the end,” he said. “From my side it’s about weekend management or day management, trying to put the race day together in the right direction. I think qualifying is important because if you qualify at the front, you usually stay at the front.”
Alex Lynn will be driving on all three days of the official Formula E test in Valencia, and finished seventh quickest overall on Monday with teammate Sam Bird fifth.
