Charles Pic will race with China Racing in place of Ho-Ping Tung. China Racing have confirmed the switch late this afternoon.
A couple of days ago the French driver posted a picture on Twitter which said that he was off to Miami to watch the race this weekend.
Pic drove in the first round of the championship with Andretti Autosport and finished in fourth position. Pic has done a lot of testing in the Spark Renault car at Donnington with Andretti Autosport.
Therefore, the French driver has experience with the car, but he will be driving for a different team in China Racing in Miami.
This will now be the second race that Ho-Ping Tung has missed in the Formula E championship. The first race was Punta Del Este in Uruguay last year.
