After already missing the Beijing ePrix two weeks ago, the Trulli Formula E team will also miss the second round of the year, hosted in Putrajaya on November 7. While the popular team managed to get their car to the Malaysian city in time, they unfortunately failed scrutineering and will therefore not take part in the Putrajaya ePrix.
The team was optimistic after missing the season starter in Beijing and hoped to debut their car in Putrajaya. Friday morning the team already made the headlines when they announced that newly-signed Salvador Duran would leave the team and Jarno Trulli would replace him in Malaysia. Later on, news broke that the team failed scrutineering.
Team principal Lucio Cavuto said: “Everyone in the team has been working incredibly hard and we were looking forward to showing our car on track. I’d like to extend a big thank you to the whole team who have believed in the project from the start and worked relentlessly on it.”
Even though the team will have missed two events by the time, Cavuto is optimistic looking forward to the ePrix in Punta del Este: “Lots of work has been done on the cars and we are confident that everything will be fine in Punta Del Este.”
