Leimer joins Virgin for London ePrix
23 June 2015 – Manor Marussia reserve driver Fabio Leimer will replace Jaime Alguersuari at Virgin Racing for this weekend's Formula E finale in London.
2013 GP2 Champion Leimer, who joined Manor Marussia earlier this month, will race alongside British driver Sam Bird, with no reason given for Alguersuari's absence from this weekend's event.
"As a racing driver, I love a challenge and so joining Virgin Racing for the London ePrix will be a great test," said Leimer.
"It's going to be an incredible and unique experience racing on the London street circuit and an even more special occasion racing for a new team in their home race.
"I'm looking forward to racing alongside Sam and hopefully contributing to a successful season finale for the team."
Leimer tested the Formula E car during pre-season running, when he was signed as Amlin Aguri's reserve driver.
