Esteban Gutierrez will join the FIA Formula E Championship field for at least two races in season three, bringing another Formula 1 veteran into the all-electric open-wheel championship.

The Haas F1 refugee, currently without a seat for the 2017 season and with his only race option likely to be the Manor team if it even makes the grid, will saddle up for his Formula E debut at Mexico City on April 1 with a second outing during the New York City ePrix two-race weekend July 15-16.

No team was revealed during his announcement today, but it was confirmed that Gutierrez will be an official series ambassador. He’s also firmly in talks with a number of teams about joining the grid full-time for season four, the 2017-2018 campaign.
