Having won the prestigious McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver Award in 2008, Formula E driver Sims has competed in Formula 3, GP3, LMP2 and GT programmes across Europe and in the USA.

He very quickly realised he had to work on all elements of the sport to make the most of his chances. I believe he had the ability to go further than he did on the single-seater ladder, but it is great to see his intelligent and honest approach paying dividends with BMW in endurance racing and Formula E."
