Andretti Global Welcomes Norman Nato to Season 10 Formula E Lineup
INDIANAPOLIS (September 12, 2023) – Andretti Global announced today that Norman Nato will join the team’s Formula E driver lineup for the upcoming milestone Season 10 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship alongside confirmed teammate and reigning World Champion Jake Dennis. Nato will pilot the No. 17 Andretti Porsche 99X Electric in his third full season of Formula E competition.
The Frenchman finished Season 9 in strong form, scoring a season-best second-place result for Nissan in Rome and consecutive point-scoring outings in the last six races of the 2022/2023 campaign. His impressive season finale fourth-place finish helped Nissan outscore their customer team NEOM McLaren in the standings while also securing a top-10 finish in the Drivers’ World Championship standings.
Throughout his 33 Formula E starts, Nato has scored one win (Berlin – Season 7), two podiums and has led 36 laps. In addition to his Formula E experience, he has competed in Formula 2 (formerly GP2), the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the FIA World Endurance Championship among others.
Nato will take to the track for the first time with Andretti Formula E for preseason testing in Valencia October 23-27 before heading to Mexico City for the season opener in January.
