Formula E Berlin: Rookie Aron Aims to Maximize Potential in Envision Debut

    Berlin, Germany – The 2023 Formula E championship heads to the streets of Berlin this weekend, and all eyes will be on young Estonian driver Paul Aron as he makes his debut in the all-electric racing series. The 20-year-old will fill the vacant Envision Racing seat left by Sebastien Buemi, who has clashing World Endurance Championship commitments at Spa.

    Aron, who is currently competing full-time in the Formula 2 championship, where he sits second in the standings, got his first taste of Formula E machinery just weeks ago during a 30-minute rookie session in Misano. With limited experience in the all-electric racers, the reigning Formula E teams’ champions have set no clear expectations for the young talent.

    “The team has made it clear there are no clear expectations this weekend from my side,” Aron told Autosport. “I know it’s not going to be easy, but my goal is just to see how much potential there is and widen the potential as much as possible, and then extract the maximum from it.”

    Aron’s debut in Formula E comes as he continues his journey towards a potential Formula 1 future. However, the ex-Mercedes Junior believes the all-electric series could also present a viable career route for young drivers, including himself.

    “For sure every driver in F2, F3 has a hope of F1, and in a way so do I, but that championship is very difficult to enter and there’s a lot of things that need to fall in place,” Aron added. “I feel like many drivers make the mistake of just putting all their hope there and when it doesn’t work out they have no other option.”

    Joining Aron at Envision this weekend will be Joel Eriksson, the Jaguar reserve driver, who will replace Robin Frijns, also due to WEC commitments. Additionally, Jordan King, the Mahindra reserve driver, will make his Formula E debut, filling in for Nyck de Vries, who will be racing in the WEC.

    Despite the limited experience, the 30-year-old Brit, King, is feeling confident. “As long as we are competitive and we’re racing with people, we show a good race for the team, then amazing,” he said.

    The 2023 Formula E Berlin E-Prix promises to be an exciting event, with several young talents making their debut in the all-electric championship. Fans will be eager to see how Aron, Eriksson, and King perform on the streets of the German capital.
