“I’m very excited at the prospect of getting back behind the wheel of a Formula E car,” said Daniel. “I’m confident that my experience can be beneficial for the team. I already know Formula E from testing in the past, and I learned a lot during season five as test and reserve driver for HWA RACELAB. It’s also great to be with Mercedes-Benz, as I know the team very well and enjoy working with them.”
