DTM drivers Lucas Auer and Daniel Juncadella, sportscar aces Pipo Derani and Filipe Albuquerque and Carlin IndyCar signing Sergio Sette Camara were among the latest batch of drivers confirmed for the post-race test on March 1.

Auer, who returns to the DTM this year BMW after a year away in Super Formula, was chosen to represent the German marque in Marrakesh alongside Kyle Kirkwood, last year's Indy Pro 2000 champion who steps up to Indy Lights this year with Andretti Autosport.

Juncadella will represent rival brand Mercedes along with Jake Hughes, who drives for Mercedes partner team HWA in FIA F3.

Meanwhile, Derani will drive for Mahindra and his Action Express Racing IMSA teammate Albuquerque will appear for DS Techeetah, both drivers joining their team's existing development drivers, Sam Dejonghe and James Rossiter respectively.

Sette Camara, who'll share an IndyCar cockpit with compatriot Felipe Nasr this year, has become the second test and reserve driver for Dragon alongside ex-BMW man Joel Eriksson.

How motorsport's most prominent power couple found joint success

The Wolffs have carved their own paths in motorsport, leading their respective teams to success in Formula 1 and Formula E.

The top 10 Formula E drivers of 2020-21

OPINION: The 2021 Formula E campaign was one without a narrative for much of the season, with no single car or driver able to break away from the pack. That makes choosing a top 10 especially difficult, particularly as the qualifying format meant some worthy performers were unable to enjoy their day in the sun.

How Mercedes and de Vries achieved Formula E glory the hard way

When Nyck de Vries dominated the first race of what would be the most controversial and unpredictable Formula E season to date, it looked as though Mercedes was in for a cakewalk. But as the campaign wore on, the path to a title double became increasingly rocky. Neither driver or team would be assured of the crown until the closing stages of the very final race on a weekend of struggle in Berlin.

The Formula E 'loan' deal that will keep di Grassi winning

OPINION: The departure of Audi from Formula E meant its long-time driver Lucas di Grassi would need to find a new berth to stay on the grid. His deal at Venturi Racing will ensure the championship's first-ever race winner will remain competitive into the final year of the current Gen2 ruleset - although it may not be a long-term fit

Mercedes' planned withdrawal from Formula E at the end of the 2022 season will contribute to the big hole left by fellow automotive manufacturers Audi and BMW on their departures.

Why Audi was right and wrong in Formula E's loophole row

OPINION: With Audi's Formula E exit imminent, it had nothing to lose in London by attempting to vault Lucas di Grassi into the lead by pitting him under the safety car. Scorn directed at the team for putting glory before ethics should instead be pointed at a rulebook that allowed such a move in the first place.
