Two days after Italian driver Vitantonio Liuzzi was announced as part of the ByKolles Racing lineup for the 2015 season of the FIA World Endurance Championship, he will adds another commitment to his schedule, as Liuzzi will race in the Miami ePrix of Formula e this weekend.
Liuzzi will the take the seat that was occupied by another Italian, Michella Cerutti. Currently one of the two women in the series, Cerutti decided to withdraw her entry due to ‘professional reasons’, according to Trulli Formula e Team. Cerutti leaves the series with no points scored and a 12th place best finish.
Liuzzi has the best of two worlds, as his sportcar racing ability to manage resources in the car will ally with his driving knowledge of a single seater, mainly thanks to his past experience in Formula One. Both are essential abilities in Formula e, and is expected that the Italian driver will use them at his maximum this weekend.
Liuzzi becomes the seventh driver of the current FIA World Endurance Championship season to enter in Formula e, alongside Loïc Duval, Lucas di Grassi, Nick Heidfeld, StéphanneSarrazin, SebastienBuemi and Nicolas Prost, all of them from the LMP1 category.
