Warwickshire-based Alexander Sims ended his rookie season on a high in July, securing pole position, a podium and fourth-place finish at the double-header finale in New York. The 31-year-old, a champion of electric mobility and sustainability, will bring this experience to BMW i ’s Season 6 campaign, as the series welcomes new manufacturers to the competition. 

“Formula E is such an exciting and forward-thinking championship on so many levels, and I’m delighted to be competing again this season,” says Sims.

“Having the opportunity to race in a series that pushes boundaries, promotes innovation and sustainable mobility is a real honour, and I’m thrilled that BMW i Andretti Motorsport has again entrusted me with this position.”

“We have an exciting driver duo for our second Formula E season,” said BMW Group Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt.

“Alexander learned at a rapid pace in his first season, and showed that he can be up there at the front. He was unlucky in some of the races, but he finally celebrated his first podium at the finale in New York. I’m confident that he will be able to build on this in 2019/20.”
