Alex Lynn (Mahindra Racing) sent a message of thanks following his accident in the 2021 Diriyah E-Prix in the second Round. Due to the accident race brought to a premature end via a red flag with a little over five minutes plus one lap left to run.
The Brit came into contact with Mitch Evans’ Jaguar on the long run down to the Turn 18/19 chicane, causing the Mahindra to upturn and skate down the straight and through the runoff area before coming to a halt.
Formula E’s medical teams were on-hand to tend to Lynn, and having been sent to hospital for precautionary checks, Lynn was discharged with the all clear in the early hours of Sunday morning. Lynn says he is humbled by the response from fans, and “100 per cent fine, with no injuries at all” following his accident.

“Safe to say that was a little bit more of a dramatic ending than I was focused on having,” said Lynn “But first things first, I’m 100 per cent fine, with no injuries at all. I have to say big thank you to my team, the FIA and also Formula E for making sure that the car I’m driving is extremely safe.
“The second thing I’d really like to say is that big thank you for the messages have been sent. I am honestly really humbled by some of the things that have been said, and I do appreciate it a lot. From now, it is just really about getting ready for Rome in a few weeks’ time. We want to maximise this really fast Mahindra car we’ve been given and we look forward to getting going again.”
