Former Williams driver Sergey Sirotkin will test with Formula E team Mahindra at the series' rookie test scheduled to take place in Marrakech later this month.

Sirotkin completed his maiden season of F1 racing with Williams in 2018 but lost out to Robert Kubica in his bid to remain with the Grove-based outfit for this season.

The 23-year-old lamented his exit and expressed his determination to return to Grand Prix racing in the future. Sirotkin is also expected to join SMP Racing's LMP1 line-up for a handful of outings in 2019.

"Formula E is now one of the most rapidly developing championships,' said Sirotkin.

"The competition here is at a very high level. More manufacturers are entering the series as they are confident that electric cars have strong future potential.

'More technical solutions appear in these cars and they are progressing rapidly.

"I drove a Formula E car in 2016 but now the car generation has changed it will be interesting to try the difference. I’m looking forward for this great experience with Mahindra Racing."
