The format of Berlin is going to be exciting and challenging at the same time and I’m looking forward to hitting the ground running.”
“It’s not easy to jump in mid-season, especially with the unique way we will be running the races in Berlin, but Alex has a hunger, talent and experience that we are sure will pay dividends fast. We would like to thank Pascal for his contribution and wish him all the best in his future endeavours,” Dilbagh Gill, CEO & Team Principal, Mahindra Racing.
