Formula E Driver Profile: Alexander Sims

After making his debut in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship in the 2018/19 season, Alexander Sims remains with BMW i Andretti Motorsport for a second season, partnering Maximilian Guenther.

Sims graduated to Formula E after years as a BMW works driver in GT racing, where he raced with his former teammate Antonio Felix da Costa. Now entering his second season with the German manufacturer, Sims partners with Max Guenther.

Starting his racing career in karts in 1998, Sims went on to clinch the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award for promising young British drivers ten years later. The following year, the British driver progressed to Formula 3, where he started to combine single-seater driving with GT and sportscar racing in series such as Blancpain Endurance, British GT and 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Making his debut in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship ahead of the 2018/19 season, the British driver set the fastest times during pre-season testing for two out of the three days. With a self-declared interest in renewable energy and electric cars, Sims is well placed to race for a manufacturer that prides itself on it’s hybrid and all-electric cars.

After a successful debut season, which saw the Brit clinch his first podium in the all-electric series in the final race of the 2018/19 season, Sims embarks on a second season alongside German driver Max Guenther.
