Andretti to run Zane Maloney and Jak Crawford in Misano and Berlin rookie tests

Andretti will again showcase the talent of Zane Maloney who will take the wheel of the teams' Porsche 99X Electric in the Free Practice 0 session in Misano and the Berlin Rookie Test, with Jak Crawford joining the American squad for the first time to sample the GEN3 machine.

The next generation of racing talent will again have a chance to showcase their skills in Season 10. First up is another Free Practice 0 running ahead of the 2024 Misano E-Prix on Friday 12 April, followed by the 2024 Berlin Rookie Test after the double-header in the German capital on Monday 13 May.

Andretti is the first team to reveal the two drivers stepping into the seats of reigning champion Jake Dennis and Norman Nato. Zane Maloney is back to represent the American outfit, to bolster his role the team's official reserve and development by running laps in the FP0 session in Misano. Maloney will again take part in the Berlin Rookie Test and American Jak Crawford will join for a full day behind the wheel of the GEN3 machine around the Tempelhof circuit.

Maloney will make his fourth outing with the team after completing the 2023 Rookie Test, along with drives in the FP0 session in Rome as well as the Season 10 pre-season test in Valencia. 

The first ever Formula 2 driver from Barbados was announced as Andretti Formula E's official reserve and development driver in November of last year and has since provided strategic support for the team with simulator development work at the team’s Banbury headquarters. Maloney began his 2024 Formula 2 campaign in Bahrain last month where he claimed back-to-back victories and leads the driver’s standings.

"I can’t wait to represent Andretti Formula E once again at both Misano and Berlin," said Maloney. "I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the team and thank them for all the trust they have put in me. It will be interesting to see how the development work I've contributed to behind the scenes translates to the actual car on track during both occasions I get to drive it."

Jak Crawford will become the seventh American to participate in an official Formula E session when he takes part in the 2024 Berlin Rookie Test

Crawford, who will make his Formula E debut at the 2024 Berlin Rookie Test, has enjoyed a long history of on-track success starting in karts before making his car racing debut in Formula 4 in 2018. After two years in FIA Formula 3, Crawford was promoted to Formula 2 quickly becoming a race winner at the Sprint race in Austria in 2023. 

Recently announced to the Aston Martin Young Driver Development program, Crawford will be the seventh American to participate in an official Formula E session joining fellow countrymen Marco Andretti, Matthew Brabham, Scott Speed, Oliver Askew, Colton Herta and Kyle Kirkwood, all of whom were also fielded by the Indianapolis-based Andretti squad, the only team on the Formula E grid to have fielded American drivers since the series’ inception in 2014.

Andretti Team Principal, Roger Griffiths welcomed the rookies to the testing agenda for Season 10: “We are excited to announce Zane Maloney's participation in the Free Practice 0 session at the 2024 Misano E-Prix, as well as his inclusion in our 2024 Berlin Rookie Test lineup. Zane has proven to be a valuable asset to our team through his development work on the simulator, and we are confident that his knowledge will benefit us during the Misano E-Prix doubleheader weekend and the Berlin Rookie Test.

"Additionally, we are pleased to announce Jak Crawford’s rookie debut at  the Berlin Rookie Test,which marks an important milestone in his career. We look forward to seeing him showcase his talents on the Formula E stage. These opportunities are integral to Andretti Global’s commitment to developing and mentoring the next generation of drivers, and we are eager to see both Zane and Jak excel on track.”
