Daniel Ticktum will stay with the NIO 333 FE team for Formula E Season 9
Daniel Ticktum will stay in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship for the start of the Gen3 era after extending his contract with the NIO 333 FE Team.
The British rider was expected to stay with NIO after making his debut for the team in season eight, and although he only scored one point during the season – he has finished tenth in the second race of the Rome E-Prix – he got a second year with the team.
He also got a dueling appearance in the Seoul E-Prix in what was a quietly impressive season in a car that was certainly not a frontrunner, and he was rightly resigned for the 2022-23 season.
Ticktum will join the already confirmed Sergio Sette Camara at NIO, and it has already started testing the new Gen3 car which will make its racing debut in the Mexico E-Prix in January. The new car had trials both Mallory Park and Varano.
“As expected, I’m back here at NIO 333 HQ,” says Ticktum in a video posted by NIO 333. “I have been in the [Gen3] car a few times, and it’s a big step up from the Gen2, I’ve really enjoyed it so far I must say.
“I’m really looking to crack with this new era of electric racing.”
The confirmation of Ticktum alongside Sette Câmara means Olivier TurveyNIO’s long partnership with NIO has come to an end, and it looks like his chances of staying on the grid are diminishing as his name isn’t mentioned on any of the remaining available seats.
Turvey has been a long-time development engine for the McLaren F1 Teamand although there is a seat available in the new Neom McLaren Formula E Teamrumors say that Jacques Hughes will occupy this place next to Rene Rast.
