The team Andretti Autosport has formalized the engagement of the American Oliver Askew for the next 2021-2022 Formula E championship, with the 24-year-old who will join Jake Dennis taking the place of Maximilian Günther, who is in turn ready to face the new world championship in Nissan e.dams. Born in Florida in 1996, Askew will therefore make his absolute debut in the category after the experiences lived, in the last season, between IMSA and IndyCar. Even before these two series, the American had achieved success in the Indy Lights in 2019 and, in the past, in the USF Championship in 2017.
With the new move by the stars and stripes team, Askew will also be the only driver on the starting grid to represent the United States, and the fourth overall in the history of Formula E after Scott Speed, Marco Andretti and Matthew Brabham: “I consider the Andretti Autosport a family – commented the new signing of the team – and adding this new chapter of my career with them is something that cannot be described in words. Furthermore, I am proud to be the only one on the track to represent my country ”.
Formula E is thus preparing to run the pre-season tests in Valencia next week before being able to get back on track for the world championship. Specifically, the electric-powered single-seaters will return to battle at the end of January in Diriyah, home to the first E-Prix scheduled in Saudi Arabia.
