Simona de Silvestro has signed for the Andretti Formula E Team to contest the second season of the all-electric series. The Swiss racer, who contested both the London rounds, returns to the Amlin sponsored team which is one of eight manufacturers.

"I'm happy to be joining the Andretti Formula E Team for this upcoming season," said de Silvestro. "I'm really happy to be full time in the championship again and to work with both Amlin and TE Connectivity. I'm also looking forward to being part of developing the new Andretti Technologies powertrain and hope for a successful year with a great team."

Team owner Michael Andretti added: "I'm very pleased with the way season two is looking for Andretti Formula E. Simona did a great job at the London ePrix with very limited time to prepare, with a full season we are confident in her abilities to take the No. 28 Amlin Andretti car to the top of the podium."

De Silvestro finished just outside the points during her Formula E debut in London and also competed in the 99th Indianapolis 500 for Andretti Autosport. She also tested in last week’s Formula E test sessions at Donington Park and will continue today and tomorrow on days three and four.
