Formula E: Mahindra appoints Jordan King as reserve driver
Indian team Mahindra Racing announced on Tuesday that it has extended the contract of Jordan King. The 29-year-old Briton will be available to the team as a simulator, test and reserve driver next season. As reserve driver, he will thus replace Jehan Daruvala, who has been given a regular cockpit at Maserati MSG Racing.
King will take over the Mahindra M9Electro for one session as the team's rookie driver during the pre-season test in Valencia. It will be King's second Mahindra appearance in an official session, following the rookie test in Berlin, which took place in April.
"Jordan’s work, both at the factory and trackside, gives a vital synergy between our simulator activities and our on-track performance," said Frederic Bertrand, CEO of Mahindra Racing on the contract extension. "It’s a pleasure to extend our relationship with him into Season 10, and I look forward to another year of progression and development, with his help."
