Former Sauber Formula One driver Esteban Gutierrez has been lined up for a test in the newly formed Mercedes Formula E team.
Having spent a little time over in the US during his absence from the Grand Prix grid - alongside his Mercedes AMG F1 simulation role, Gutierrez is set to return to top level open wheel racing during a four day test session with the new Mercedes Formula E outfit.
Scheduled to run at a small racing facility in Mallorca, the Mexican will be joined by fellow Mercedes backed drivers Edoardo Mortara and Stoffel Vandoorne, currently racing for the Venturi and HWA squads respectively.
Of course seat time in Formula E will be nothing new for the 27-year-old, with Gutierrez having previously taken part in three Formula E races for the Techeetah squad during the 2016/17 season.
With Mercedes still firmly in the testing phase ahead of their series debut next season, the full roster of drivers have yet to be revealed. As well as Gutierrez, former DTM champion and 2018/19 Formula E driver Gary Parfett remains under contract to the German squad, as does fellow HWA driver and former McLaren Formula One star Stoffel Vandoorne.
