Alex Fontana gets Trulli call-up

Alex Fontana will replace Vitantonio Liuzzi at Trulli for the Visa London ePrix at Battersea Park this weekend.

The 22-year-old Swiss driver – who is a former member of the Lotus F1 junior team – gets his opportunity in the double-header season one finale as Liuzzi is in Super GT action.

Fontana was the F3 Open champion in 2011. He was a race winner in Formula Two a year later and has been in GP3 since 2013, taking three podiums and two fastest laps. This season he also made a one-off appearance in Formula-Renault 3.5.
