Di Resta and Fittipaldi to test Jaguar Formula E car

Di Resta will travel to Marrakesh after completing official testing for the Daytona 24 Hours, which he will contest at the end of January in a United Autosports LMP2 car.

The Mercedes DTM driver contested the 2017 Hungarian Grand Prix for Williams in place of the ill Felipe Massa and was in contention for the 2018 F1 race seat that looks to have gone to Sergey Sirotkin.

Instead of preparing for a new F1 season, he will sample the Jaguar I-type 2 on January 14 in Marrakesh the day after the second round of the 2017/18 FE season.

Di Resta will be joined in the Jaguar team by the grandson of double F1 champion Emerson Fittipaldi.

Pietro won the FIA World Endurance Championship-supporting F3.5 series in the final year of the ex-World Series by Renault category (Formula V8).
