French veteran Stephane Sarrazin will drive MS & AD Andretti’s No.27 entry for the remainder of the current Formula E season, replacing WEC-bound rookie Tom Blomqvist.
Blomqvist, a BMW works driver, will focus on the BMW GTE program, creating an opening for Sarrazin to further build upon his long resume.
“First off – we are very thankful for the effort and time that Tom Blomqvist put in this season,” said Andretti Formula E CEO Michael Andretti.
“Stephane Sarrazin brings with him a wealth of experience in Formula E. He is one of the smartest, most well-versed drivers in motorsports and we are excited for him to bring his knowledge to the MS&AD Andretti team. We will make a strong push and hopefully finish the season on a high note at the last four races.”
In addition to his 33 previous FE appearances over three seasons, Sarrazin has competed in F1, the WEC and the WRC, among other categories.
“I am really happy to be joining the MS&AD Andretti team,” said Sarrazin. “After three seasons and a fantastic experience, it’s great to be back in Formula E. I will give my best to the team and try to score as many points as possible in the last four races of the season.”
