Williams racer Massa to test Jaguar Formula E car
Williams Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa is due to test Jaguar’s Formula E car.
The Brazilian talked openly of his desire to compete in the electric single-seater series before he went back on a decision to retire from F1 in order to replace new Mercedes signing Valtteri Bottas at Williams in 2017.
Massa was set to sample FE machinery for the first time today (Wednesday) at an unknown location in the Jaguar I-type 1.
Mitch Evans and Adam Carroll are Jaguar’s 2016/17 FE race drivers.
After confirming his Williams return, Massa said he would not be distracted by another programme during his F1 campaign.
But if the 2017 F1 season proves to be Massa’s last, he could move into FE for the start of the 2017/18 campaign.
The series, which runs to an offset calendar, is looking into starting its next season as late as in December.
