Pic completes Formula E line-up
12 September 2014 – Andretti Formula E has confirmed that Lotus reserve driver Charles Pic will race for them at Saturday's inaugural ePrix in Beijing.
Pic has not raced since he departed Caterham at the end of a two-year stint in Formula 1 but will join fellow Frenchman Franck Montagny on the grid for the opener.
"This is very exciting. Formula E is a new challenge and concept, so there is a lot of excitement; you can feel it throughout the team," said Pic.
"I am very much looking forward to being part of the Andretti Formula E Team family and to the first round of competition in Beijing."
Andretti also confirmed that Matthew Brabham, grandson of Formula 1 legend Sir Jack Brabham, will act as the squad's reserve driver.
The Formula E Beijing ePrix takes place on Saturday at 16:00 local time (GMT +8)
