Formula 1 driver Antonio Giovinazzi will take part in the Formula E rookie test at Marrakesh.

The Ferrari-supported Italian made his F1 debut in 2017 as replacement for the injured Pascal Wehrlein at Sauber, and was a contender to join the Swiss team as a full-time driver for the upcoming season.

However, Sauber opted for fellow Ferrari protege Charles Leclerc and team regular Marcus Ericsson instead, with Giovinazzi having to settle for a third-driver role.

He will make an appearance in the January 14 post-race FE rookie test at Marrakech, and will pilot DS Virgin’s DSV-03 car alongside BMW racer Eriksson.
