Team Rosberg is planning an aggressive move into Formula E in time for the sport’s first season, reports motoring journal Autosport. The team was founded by F1 champ Keke Rosberg, father of Nico who currently drives for the Mercedes Formula 1 team alongside Lewis Hamilton, and was involved in the short-lived A1 GP series.
Audi DTM outfit Team Rosberg is planning an assault on the inaugural Formula E championship when it begins next autumn. Arno Zensen’s squad, which has centred its motorsport activities around the DTM for the past decade, has applied to enter the series for electric vehicles, but is unsure of being granted one of the coveted spots.
“It’s no secret that it’s something that’s very interesting to us,” Zensen said. “We should know whether we’re in by the end of October.”
