Formula E’s super subs

With the news that David Beckman will be jumping in to replace Avalanche Andretti’s Andre Lotterer in Jakarta, it got us thinking. That’s right, the Formula 1 race winner once found himself behind the wheel of a Formula E car. Although he had a day of testing under his belt, Gasly was relatively inexperienced in the all-electric single-seaters, which was not helped by the fact he missed shakedown on Friday evening. The Frenchman qualified 19th for the first race but climbed up to a respectable seventh. Antonio Felix da Costa was again off to race in DTM, so Rast was brought in to race at his home event in Germany in Season 2. Rast returned for the Berlin blockbuster in Season 6, when he raced for Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler when there were six races in nine days. Although he finished at the back of his qualifying group, he stayed out of trouble in the race to pass the chequered flag in 16th. Some drivers have done more than the odd race to help here and there.
