(Reuters) - Former Formula One driver Pedro de la Rosa has joined Chinese-owned Formula E leaders Techeetah as sporting and technical advisor.
The 47-year-old Spaniard, who raced in Formula One with Arrows, Jaguar, Mclaren, Sauber and HRT, will start at Saturday’s Rome ePrix.
“Formula E has really taken off and it’s a significant and relevant addition to the international motorsport scene,” he said in a statement.
