Nico Müller will get Formula E test with Audi

DTM driver Nico Müller will get a Formula E test with Audi together with Nyck de Vries.

The duo is scheduled to test the Audi e-tron FE04 on January 14th, the day after the next Formula E race in Marrakech.

“I’ve been watching Formula E as a fan for quite some time but, unfortunately, only on television,” said Müller.

”When I visit ABT Sportsline the Formula E race car is often parked alongside my DTM car – that’s when I fancy driving it, so I’m all the more excited about this opportunity.”

Müller finished 12th overall in the 2017 DTM season with two podium finishes.

“This mid-season test is a unique opportunity. Nico and Nyck are going to drive our e-tron FE04 for a number of test kilometers which will give them a good initial impression of the car and the things that are special in Formula E,” says Allan McNish, Team Principal of Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler. “Nico already belongs to the Audi family and we’ve been closely watching Nyck’s career in recent years. Both have their roots in single-seater racing and will no doubt manage well.”
