Formula E in Berlin: Andretti confirms Maloney & Lundqvist for rookie test
Avalanche Andretti will contest the rookie test after the Berlin E-Prix with Zane Maloney and Linus Lundqvist. The U.S. racing team confirmed this via its social media channels on Thursday afternoon. After Porsche and Envision, Andretti is the third team to release the name of at least one driver for the test day.
Last week we reported on the looming test opportunity for Maloney and Lundqvist. "I'm really looking forward to doing the rookie test with Andretti," said Maloney, a Formula 2 driver who hails from Barbados. "I want to thank the team for this opportunity and I'm looking forward to the big learning curve in my first time in a Formula E car. I want to learn as much as I can myself, but hopefully help the team for the rest of the season."
Ahead of the test, Lundqvist was also "full of anticipation - see you on track!" The Swede won the Indy Lights championship in the U.S. in 2022, but has yet to find a full-time cockpit in another racing series for 2023. Participation in the rookie test, which will take place this year on April 24, is thus likely to become a showcase for potential motorsport employers for him as well.
