Former Manor Formula 1 driver Roberto Mehri has hinted that he will be competing in the upcoming fourth season of the Formula E Championship.

While being interviewed on Spanish radio station COPE, the Spaniard revealed that he would be preparing for the new season ‘from the first day in September, ‘curious’ to know how different the electric cars are to drive compared to a standard single seater.

The Spaniard drove 13 grand prix with Manor in 2015 after winning the Formula 3 Euroseries in 2011. Later in the season he shared the seat with American Alexander Rossi and has since driven for the Manor team in the World Endurance Championship.
