Felix Rosenqvist is looking into the possibility of racing in the Japanese-based Super Formula championship in 2017, with the current FIA Formula E driver looking at the vacant seat at Team Le Mans.

The Swede admits that he would be interested in racing in the category as it would not clash with his Formula E commitments, which would be priority, and he has impressed many by his performances in the first three rounds of the season, which has included a maiden pole position and podium finish in Morocco and two fastest laps for the Mahindra Racing Formula E Team.

Rosenqvist is not the only one being linked to the Toyota-backed drive, with current Renault Sport Formula 1 Team reserve driver Sergey Sirotkin and five-time GP2 Series race winner Alex Lynn also in contention.

“Super Formula is interesting because it’s the only one that doesn’t clash with Formula E,” said Rosenqvist to Autosport. “I would be up for doing it, but Formula E is the priority for me.

“If there was any sign this would disrupt Formula E it would be better to maybe look at a GT programme. Like always, it’s better to have it done quicker. The last couple of weeks I was so focused on Buenos Aires it came to the side a little bit. It’s something I’m working on.”
