Alex Lynn has joined DS Virgin Racing as a development driver after leaving the GP2 series at the end of 2016. The former GP3 champion will take on an all year round role, with both car development and driver preparation alike in the role.

Lynn brings plenty of experience, having acted as development driver for Williams from 2015-2016.

“I like the combination of street racing along with the challenge of energy management," Lynn said. "I think this series is going to suit me down to the ground. I look forward to working with Sam and Jose in testing and development of the cars and at the DS Performance sim in Satory.”

"Formula E is arguably the most competitive motor racing championship in the world, with the highest calibre of drivers. As a driver I want to be competing in the top series, which is why I’ve been trying so hard to get into Formula E, and DS Virgin was my first choice. So I’m delighted to have signed a multi-year deal.”

Alex Tai, DS Virgin Racing's Team Principal says that he is delighted by the signing.

“I’m delighted we have acquired a driver of the calibre and potential of Alex Lynn. It is a testament to the strength of Formula E that we’re now attracting drivers like Alex and it speaks volumes that Alex has chosen DS Virgin Racing as his team. We’re excited to see what he’s capable of in our car."
