Matthew Brabham to make Formula E race debut with Andretti


With Formula One and GP2/GP3 racing in Abu Dhabi and Formula E in Malaysia this weekend, there are a couple conflicts that have popped up.

Daniel Abt will race FE, and Nicolas Latifi will take his place in GP2.

Meanwhile Lotus reserve driver Charles Pic is at Abu Dhabi for F1, which means there will be a vacancy at Andretti Autosport’s FE program this weekend.

The team’s reserve driver Matthew Brabham has thus been called up to replace Pic this weekend, alongside Franck Montagny, who interestingly is racing in FE and not able to undertake his usual Canal+ commitments for French TV at the Grand Prix.

Brabham has tested for the team before, and should go well this weekend.
