Wurz takes on Lynn’s management through new company

by Peter Allen

Alex Lynn is now managed by a company headed by former Formula 1 driver Alex Wurz.

Current Toyota sportscar ace Wurz has formed Integrale Management together with sponsorship agent Myles Mordaunt and marketing man Francis Jago with the aim of securing F3 European Championship racer a future in F1.

Wurz worked with Lynn during 2012 in his role with the FIA Institute Young Driver Excellence Academy, and will now be responsible for his driver development and for building relations in the F1 paddock.

“I have worked with Alex in the FIA Institute young driver academy, but when I saw him setting pole position for the F3 Macau GP I realised that he really is a genuine talent,” said Austrian Wurz.?”I look forward to work with him and help to get him to Formula 1.”

Mordaunt, who will be responsible for Lynn’s commerical portfolio, said: “One consistent observation during my 23 years in and around international motorsport is that the best drivers don?t always succeed ? in many instances for commercial reasons. I have always believed in the underlying philosophy of Integrale Management, that skilled people should focus on the niche areas that make up driver management, allowing the driver himself to simply concentrate on driving.”

Jago will focus on communication, and added: “While Alex Lynn is an obvious talent, our job is to ensure every facet of his career is truly maximised.?Making him the focus of our attention will give him the best possible chance of success.?His attitude and engaging personality are going to make our job much easier.”

Lynn currently lies fourth in the F3 standings after podiums at the opening rounds at Monza and Silverstone. Round three takes place this weekend at Hockenheim, where he made a guest appearance at the end of 2012, finishing the final race in third ahead of champion Daniel Juncadella.

?I have been working hard in the simulator, and also had some great success at Hockenheim at the end of last year,” said the 19-year-old. “Making the F3 podium and beating the current Euro Series Champion is great for my confidence. Therefore I am going into this weekend extremely focused on getting some great results and a big haul of points, crucial at every round for both the driver and team championships.?
