Nico Muller and Nyck de Vries will take part in the rookie test in Marrakesh next month The test day is scheduled for January 14, 2018, one day after the next Formula E race.
The rules are strict, permitting only drivers without an E-license to take part in the test. All drivers that will participate haven’t driven Formula E.
Team Principal Allan McNish beilives the test will be a good opportunity to get some more miles under their belts as well as looking at drivers for the future.
“This mid-season test is a unique opportunity. Nico and Nyck are going to drive our e-tron FE04 for a number of test kilometres which will give them a good initial impression of the car and the things that are special in Formula E,”
“Nico already belongs to the Audi family and we’ve been closely watching Nyck’s career in recent years. Both have their roots in single-seater racing and will no doubt manage well,” said McNish.
