Felix Rosenqvist is arguably one of Sweden’s most talented racing drivers currently on the market. He is not only one of the most versatile drivers in Formula E, but also a real street circuit expert. Not only has he won in Macau several times, but he also has victories on the St Petersburg, Toronto, Pau and Norisring street circuits under his belt: “Mahindra Racing’s Felix Rosenqvist has undeniable street racing pedigree.”
Even though he is one of the youngest drivers on the grid, he has more diverse experiences on his CV than several of his competitors. He began his racing career in karting in 2004, before quickly moving on to the Asian as well as the Nothern European Formula Renault. He went on the gain experience in a handful of other Formula Renault championships, such as the Italian and the Swedish one. He immediately won the title in the latter in 2009. In 2010, he moved on to Formula 3, being crowned European Formula 3 champion in 2015. The following year showed just what the young Swede is made of. Not only did he compete in DTM with Mercedes and Indy Lights, but also the Blancpain Sprint Series, the Blancpain Endurance Series, ADAC GT Masters, the Intercontinental GT Challenge and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. In the end of the year he also joined Formula E with Mahindra Racing. Just as his CV suggests, he was quickly able to find his rhythm in Formula E, setting the fastest lap during his first ever race in the electrically-powered racing series and putting his Mahindra on pole-position just a few weeks later in Marrakesh, where he also secured his first podium finish. The motorsports-all star is focussing his efforts on Formula E this year, even turning down a full-time offer for a DTM drive with Mercedes this season.
