Formula 2 driver Dan Ticktum will move into Formula E with NIO next year, filling the final space on the grid.

Ticktum was previously a member of Red Bull and Williams’s young Formula 1 driver programmes.

He was dropped from the latter unexpectedly in August

.

The 22-year-old lies fourth in the F2 standings with DAMS. He is 49 points behind leader Oscar Piastri and still in contention to win the championship over the remaining two triple-header rounds.

He is the third rookie to join the Formula E field for 2022. Ticktum’s fellow newcomers include Antonio Giovinazzi, who will head to the series following his departure from Alfa Romeo’s Formula 1 team, and Oliver Askew, who was announced as Andretti’s second driver yesterday.

Testing for the new Formula E season will begin in Valencia next week.
