Venturi, the Monegasque Formula E pioneer, has chosen a new driver to replace Briton Mike Conway. Maro Engel, a German national, grew up in Monaco and is a childhood friend of Nico Rosberg.
Engel is an experienced Formula 3 driver and in 2008 and 2011 was champion of the German touring car competition. The 30-year-old has also competed the Macau GT Cup, and at the Nürburgring on May 29 this year.
Venturi will be at Donington Park from August 23 to 25 for pre-season tests before moving on to the season opener in Hong Kong. Formula E comes back to the Principality on May 13 next year, ahead of the traditional Monaco Grand Prix, before moving to Paris on May 20.
Venturi has staked its future on success in Formula E.
