The all-electric FIA Formula E Championship has confirmed that Italian driver Michela Cerruti will partner F1 Grand Prix race-winner Jarno Trulli for his own TrulliGP team, becoming the series’ second female driver after Katherine Legge and the 14th of 20 confirmed drivers.
Cerruti, an Auto GP race-winner, said: “I’m very pleased to join TrulliGP and I am very honoured to be part of the FIA Formula E Championship. I really do believe that this series can help attract people to use electric vehicles and help care for the future of the environment. I’m now looking forward to testing the car to start this new challenge.”
Jarno Trulli added: “Michela is a very talented driver with a natural skill. I was impressed by her recent results considering the very limited time she has spent in single-seaters. I’m extremely happy to share my long Formula 1 experience with Michela to make our team successful. I’m convinced that Michela is an up and coming star, the one to watch for this season and the future.”
