Nelson Piquet jr., son of three-time Formula 1 World Champion Nelson Piquet, has revealed to a Brazilian local radio station that he is targeting Formula E as full-time race job, along with participating in multiple NASCAR races.

“This year is more open than I thought it would be,” said the 28-year old Piquet jr. “My main sponsor, Worx, has lost interest in NASCAR and they are keen to enter Formula E.” Meetings with potential Formula E teams have been held last week, but nothing has been decided. It is anticipated that the Brazilian driver will start the race season in NASCAR, before switching to Formula E in September 2014.

Piquet jr. participated in Formula 1 during the 2008 and 2009 season for Renault and continued his career in various NASCAR series, taking four wins. Countrymen Lucas di Grassi and Bruno Senna are also linked to Formula E.

Tim is co-founder of and works in international motorsport. He found his passion for sustainable racing by joining world's first competition for hydrogen electric vehicles in 2008. He does not doubt on the possibility of a break through of electric racing. And that deserves a platform to keep up to date and to interact. Tim operates on behalf of Formula Blue Media.
