McLaren confirms Rast as its first Formula E driver


 Rene Rast has been announced as the first driver for McLaren’s new Formula E entry.

Rast joins McLaren after a decade with Audi that yielded 24 DTM race victories and three titles, two FIA World Endurance Championship victories, two 24 Hours of Spa wins, a class triumph in the Daytona 24 Hours, and a brace of podiums in Formula E during a season-and-a-half stint with the Audi-backed Abt team.

“I am delighted to join the NEOM McLaren Formula E Team,” said Rast. “As a racing fan, McLaren has always had huge appeal. It’s an iconic name in motorsport with a rich history, so I feel privileged and proud to be able to represent McLaren in Formula E next season.

“I’ve done a season in Formula E before, it was a great experience, and I felt after that year I wasn’t done yet. I’m excited that I am now getting the opportunity to continue that journey.
