Red Bull junior and Formula 2 racer Zane Maloney will be Andretti Global’s reserve driver in Formula E next season.
Maloney has already picked up FE mileage with the team, contesting the rookie test in Berlin, a free practice session in Rome and also pre-season testing at Valencia’s Ricardo Tormo circuit for the upcoming 2024 campaign.
“Joining Andretti FE as the official reserve and development driver is an incredible opportunity,” said Maloney.
“I’m grateful for the trust the team has placed in my abilities, and I’m determined to support [the team’s race drivers] Jake Dennis and Norman Nato as best I can. The Andretti name has such a rich history in motorsport, so it’s a pretty surreal moment for me in my career. I’m looking forward to contributing to the team’s continued success in Season 10.”
The 20-year-old is currently 10th in the F2 standings, and has made the podium four times so far in his rookie campaign. Before that he was 2019 British Formula 4 champion, a Formula Regional European Championship racer-winner in 2021 and the FIA Formula 3 Championship runner-up last year.
“We’ve had the pleasure of working closely with Zane, and his dedication, talent and enthusiasm really stood out to us,” Andretti’s FE team principal Roger Griffiths said.
“Not only has he proven himself in other racing series, but also on multiple occasions during the rookie sessions where he demonstrated an excellent understanding of our Gen3 car. We are delighted to have Zane join us as our official reserve and development driver and look forward to working closely with him throughout the coming season.”
