Here you will find the line-ups of all teams so far

The Berlin Rookie Test is fast approaching and Formula E is once again organizing an official Rookie Test day in the German capital. The special sessions have welcomed some of motorsport’s biggest names to try out the all-electric machines, many of whom have made the step up to full-time seats in Formula E.

Several drivers had the opportunity to drive the GEN3 machines for the Rookie Free Practice at Misano last month, with NEOM McLaren’s Taylor Barnard being the fastest of the bunch.

What classifies as a rookie?

Teams can field anyone who has previously tested Formula E machinery, but they cannot be drivers on the Season 10 entry list and they must not have previously competed in a Formula E race in their career. The idea is to give the best young talent the opportunity to race at the very top of the motorsport ladder, with a taste of Formula E and the chance to impress potential teams in the world’s leading electric racing series.

To participate in the session, drivers must be in possession of a full E-license or at least an E-license for free practice only. They will also have to complete specific training on electrical safety, understand the characteristics of the all-electric Formula E car and know the technical and sporting regulations for the championship.

Of the various test days given to teams throughout the season, a maximum of two of the six official days can be reserved for rookie drivers. They can participate in a maximum of two official test days.
