22-year-old Dan Ticktum will make his Formula E debut next year for the NIO 333 team, making him the last driver to secure a seat in the electric racing class. The Briton is currently in his third season in the Formula 2 championship and is fourth in the standings. A career opportunity to F1 was not an option for Ticktum.
Previously, the young driver was part of the Red Bull junior training, later he became part of the junior pool at Williams. Ticktum will drive alongside Oliver Turvey in Formula E. Turvey already has some more experience in the electric racing class, the driver will start his seventh season with the team.
Ticktum won several races in Formula 2 and also won the prestigious Macau Grand Prix twice. Other candidates for the seat at NIO 333 were Harry Tincknell and Louis Deletraz.
