De Silvestro to make Formula E debut in London

IndyCar racer Simona de Silvestro will make her Formula E debut in this month's London ePrix.

The Swiss driver, who is contesting a part-time schedule in IndyCar with Andretti Autosport, will race with the team's Formula E squad alongside Jean Eric Vergne.

Although it will be de Silvestro's first Formula E race, it will not be the first time she drives the car, as she already carried out a demonstration in Geneva earlier this year.

Ex-F1 driver Sakon Yamamoto will also be making his Formula E debut later this month when he joins the Amlin Aguri team to replace Antonio Felix da Costa, who has clashing DTM commitments.

Yamamoto has already driven the all-electric car before when he tested it in Miami.
