DTM's Edoardo Mortara, Tom Blomqvist join Formula E pre-season test

Edoardo Mortara DTM 2017

DTM race winners Edoardo Mortara and Tom Blomqvist will be part of Formula E's official pre-season test this week as they vie for drives at Venturi and Andretti respectively.

Mercedes man Mortara and Super GT frontrunner James Rossiter will test for Venturi at Valencia, with both drivers running on Monday.

Rossiter will drive again on Tuesday before giving the #5 car to last year's Venturi driver Maro Engel, while last season's DTM runner-up Mortara will appear again on Tuesday afternoon and all day Thursday.

Mortara will be sharing Tuesday's running with Moroccan racer Michael Benyahia, who will drive in the morning.

Meanwhile, BMW DTM driver Blomqvist will complete two-and-a-half days of running with Andretti, with which BMW is a technical partner and will enter the series with in full-works form in 2018/19.

Tom Blomqvist DTM 2017

Blomqvist will first appear on Monday afternoon after his fellow BMW-contracted driver Alexander Sims completes the morning session.

Ex-Formula 3 European Championship frontrunner Blomqvist will then take over the #27 car for the next two days, with the British driver likely to be announced as Robin Frijns' replacement alongside Antonio Felix da Costa.

Da Costa will drive on Monday and Thursday, and give Sims - Andretti's development driver - his car for Tuesday's running.

NIO will formally announce new Jaguar signing Nelson Piquet Jr's replacement before testing begins on Monday morning.

Oliver Turvey has not been named on the entry list for NIO, but signed a multi-season contract last year and will remain with the team for a third campaign.

Elsewhere, the full-season drivers will complete all three days with their respective teams.
