You Won’t Believe Who Andretti Formula E Just Signed as Reserve and Development Driver for Season 10!
Andretti Formula E dropped a bombshell on Wednesday afternoon, announcing their latest signing for the upcoming season. They have secured the services of Formula 2 sensation Zane Maloney as their reserve and development driver, solidifying their growing partnership.
Maloney has been making waves in the racing world, and Andretti clearly recognizes his potential. This year alone, he has already been fielded by the team three times, impressing everyone with his skills behind the wheel. From the rookie tests in Berlin and Rome to a session during pre-season testing in Valencia, Maloney has proven that he is a force to be reckoned with.
In his new role with the American team, Maloney will have the opportunity to attend various races throughout Formula E’s centurion campaign. Not only that, but he will also have a significant role in the team’s simulator, honing his skills and contributing to the team’s overall performance. It’s worth noting that despite his role as reserve and development driver, Maloney remains eligible to participate in the Berlin rookie test next year, making him a realistic option for Andretti.
Working closely with reigning World Champion Jake Dennis and Andretti’s new signing, Norman Nato, Maloney will strive to ensure that the team extracts the maximum potential from their package at every E-Prix. Their journey together begins in Mexico City next January, and the excitement surrounding this dynamic trio is palpable.
Maloney is ecstatic about the opportunity and expressed his gratitude for the trust Andretti has placed in him. He is determined to provide unwavering support to both Dennis and Nato, understanding the importance of teamwork and collaboration in achieving success. Joining Andretti Formula E as the official reserve and development driver is a dream come true for Maloney, and he is eager to contribute to the team’s continued triumphs in Season 10.
The official announcement was accompanied by a stunning image capturing Maloney behind the wheel, driving Dennis’ car during a session in Valencia. The image perfectly encapsulates the determination and passion that Maloney brings to the table.
Maloney’s talent and potential have not gone unnoticed within the racing community. In fact, he was even linked to a potential full-time seat at Andretti before Nato’s arrival from the Nissan Formula E Team. Throughout 2023, Maloney has been competing in his maiden F2 season for Rodin Carlin, following a successful stint as the Formula 3 Vice-Champion in 2022 for Trident. At just 20-years-old, he has already secured a podium finish in F2 and has consistently impressed throughout the year. With two races left in Abu Dhabi, Maloney currently holds the 10th position in the Drivers’ Championship.
Andretti Team Principal Roger Griffiths couldn’t contain his excitement when discussing Maloney’s addition to the team. He expressed his delight in having Maloney onboard, citing the young driver’s dedication, talent, and enthusiasm as standout qualities. Griffiths praised Maloney’s exceptional understanding of their GEN3 car, particularly showcased during the rookie sessions. The team is eagerly anticipating the start of the season and is looking forward to working closely with Maloney to achieve their shared goals.
The partnership between Zane Maloney and Andretti Formula E promises to be a captivating journey. With his immense talent and the team’s unwavering support, Maloney has the opportunity to make a significant impact in Season 10 and beyond. As the countdown begins for the start of the next Formula E campaign, the motorsport community is buzzing with anticipation to witness Maloney’s progression and contributions to the team’s success.
