Esteban Guti?rrez joins Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team

“We will face a lot of challenges in our first season in Formula E, so I’m really pleased we’ve been able to acquire the services of Esteban, another experienced driver. He did an excellent job during testing in Majorca, fitting in perfectly with the team. He has a lot of experience to offer from racing in a number of different series – Formula 1, Formula E and Indycar – and has also gained a lot of know-how in the simulator about how to develop and setup a car. We are certain that he will be of enormous help with the tasks we face in our debut season in his joint role as Reserve and Development Driver with Gary.”

We will be at the season opener in Diriyah just one week from now, making their debut in the all-electric race series as the first two E-Prix of the 2019/20 season get under way at the 2.45-km track in Saudi Arabia, 22/23 November.
