Formula E: Kush Maini joins Mahindra Racing as reserve Driver

Formula E: Kush Maini si unisce a Mahindra Racing come pilota di riserva

Mahindra Racing announces the signing of Indian rising star Kush Maini as a reserve driver for Season 10 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

The 23-year-old from Bangalore joins the Indian team on the Formula E grid after an impressive rise through the FIA single seater pathway over the past seven years.

Starting in Italian F4 back in 2016, Maini has subsequently enjoyed success in British Formula 3, the Formula Renault Eurocup, FIA Formula 3 and, at present, competes in the FIA Formula 2 Championship, scoring his first podium in Melbourne, Australia earlier this year.

Now, as Maini explores new opportunities in his fledgling career at the top table of international motorsport, the protégé of two-time Formula 1 champion Mika Hakkinen has chosen to forge a new partnership with Mahindra Racing, as the team continues an exciting new chapter in its own history.

Maini will work closely with the team’s two race drivers, Edoardo Mortara and Nyck de Vries, and closely in conjunction with fellow Reserve Driver, Jordan King. His role will involve simulator sessions, attendance at selected E-Prix events to support the team, and possible opportunities to test the team’s M10Electro race car in future.

News of Maini’s signing follows on closely from the announcement that the FIA’s all-electric series will return to the streets of Hyderabad, India for Season 10, after a successful first E-Prix for the championship in the state of Telangana.
