Roberto Mehri and Jordan King will join team reserve driver Jehan Daruvala as part of a three-driver lineup for the Berlin rookie test on Monday.
Mehri and King will share a car while Daruvala will complete the full day of testing for the team.
Mahindra is the only team to field three drivers in the test and is one of few teams to field their test or reserve drivers as part of the test.
Daruvala joined the Indian team at the start of the season, pairing his reserve duties with his fourth Formula 2 campaign with MP Motorsport. The Indian driver left the Red Bull junior programme and when speaking to Motorsport Week earlier this year, affirmed that Formula E is his current goal.
“My role as Reserve Driver means I have already driven laps in the simulator, and I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the M9Electro for real. As an Indian, I’m especially proud to be driving for the only Indian manufacturer on the grid and I’m really grateful to Mahindra Racing for giving me this opportunity.”
King will have his first outing in Formula E machinery after acting as the team’s sim and development driver for the past two years. King has previously taken part in both WEC and IndyCar as well as acting as a development driver for Manor and Alpine Formula One team. The Briton will be able to bring a wealth of experience from two years in the simulator to the track.
“It’ll be good to take the weekend’s simulator work straight to the track on Monday morning and carry on the progression and learning. As always, I’m grateful to the team for the opportunity to represent them and I can’t wait to get out there.”
Mehri has bounced around the single-seater series over the past few seasons, making appearances in Formula 2, Super Formula Lights and S5000 as well as campaigns in Super GT. The Spaniard had one season in Formula One in 2015 with Manor, before leaving and heading to WEC.
“I will put in all my effort to do a good job for the team. Adapting to a new challenge is exciting and I look forward to it.”
