Formula E Jakarta E-Prix 2023: Mahindra Driver Change
With Oliver Rowland's decision to leave the Mahindra Racing team where he has competed since the start of the 2022 season, Roberto Merhi will make his Formula E debut in Jakarta this weekend. Rowland raced in what is anticipated to be his last race for Mahindra earlier in Monaco.
The success rate of Roberto Merhi is impressive, to say the least. Before joining the Manor Marussia F1 Team in 2015, he won Formula Renault, the Spanish F3, the British F3, and the Formula Renault 3.5 Series before stepping up to Formula 1. Merhi competes in both single-seaters and endurance racing and in 2020 he won the Asian Le Mans Series Drivers' Championship.
