Dan Ticktum will race in Formula E for NIO 333 next season after being dropped by the Williams junior programme in Formula 1.

Ticktum admitted his chances of getting a seat in F1 had pretty much disappeared after his Williams departure was confirmed over the summer, saying he was “booted out” by them and Red Bull beforehand.

The two-time Macau Grand Prix winner will partner long-time McLaren test driver Oliver Turvey at his new team, with a test in Valencia next week.

Ticktum will miss a portion of the running though as he will take part in Formula 2 action in Saudi Arabia, as he finishes the season with Carlin.

Now he appears to be out of the picture for a drive in Formula 1 – by his own admission – he said he is looking forward to throwing himself into the challenge of driving in Formula E.

Very grateful for the opportunities i’ve had in my career as always, and this is definitely going to be an exciting change!

“I’m very happy to be racing with the NIO 333 Formula E team,” Ticktum said on the announcement of his arrival.

“It will be quite a big challenge as I haven’t had long to prepare for the test next week and Formula E is complicated, but it will be very exciting.

“There are quite a few different tools you can use as a driver but it’s a totally different experience to Formula 2, so I’m really looking forward to it both mentally and physically.

“I’ve had a great few days with the team at Silverstone this week and hopefully we can try to make some progress next season and get further up the grid.”

“Let’s warmly welcome Daniel Ticktum as our newest member of the NIO 333 Formula E family,” added NIO chief executive Vincent Wang.

“His race results that impress me the most are the two victories in the Macau Grand Prix, one of the most famous races in the world.

“Though he has shouldered some difficulties during his career, I believe his experience will pave the way to success. He is a young, bright new star who will shine on the Formula E racetrack.”

Ticktum currently sits fourth in the F2 title race with weekends in Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi to come, and he has won two races so far this season in that series.
