Matthew Brabham in for Putrajaya ePrix

1 Mins read

Matthew Brabham will deputise for Charles Pic at the Putrajaya ePrix as Andretti Autosport regular Charles Pic is on reserve duty with the Lotus F1 Team in Abu Dhabi.

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and subsequent testing created a clash between Pic’s Andretti and Lotus duties, meaning that Brabham will line up alongside Franck Montagny.

It means Brabham will make his Formula E debut on the back foot. With his announcement falling so late, the grandson of legendary Jack Brabham will struggle for any additional help through the Fan Boost system.

Thankfully, the youngster will have the advantage of familiarity. The United States born driver has experienced Andretti’s Formula E car, having tested it earlier in the year at Donington Park.

His links with Andretti go beyond Formula E, having driven for the team’s junior side for the past two years. His time with the team has culminated in the 2013 Pro Mazda title and a fourth place finish in Indy Lights.

The twenty year old now completes Andretti’s line up for this weekend’s Malaysian race and the American will be thrown into a challenging 1.59mile long circuit complete with twelve challenging turns as the team look to hold onto the top of the team standings.
