Formula E: Sims says Formula E not for him

Alexander Sims’ sees no future in Formula E and has decided to quit the series to focus exclusively on his endurance racing career from 2023 onwards.

In a candid interview with The Race conducted at last weekend’s Marrakesh E-Prix, Sims says that he’s now mostly rationalized a painful final season with Mahindra.

His Formula E career has so far seen several key highlights including a win (Diriyah 2019) and three pole positions (New York and two in Diriyah both during 2018) since he made his debut with the factory BMW Andretti squad in 2018.

“Naturally I wanted to explore what other options there would be in Formula E. There were some and I’ve actually decided myself, off the back of Nurburgring and Le Mans as well, I gave myself like two to three months of ‘we know the situation with the team, look elsewhere as well’.”

Sims appears to have come to the conclusion that, for him, endurance racing is where he thrives the most.
