This means that Oliver Turvey will not be making a return to the team, with Sergio Sette Camara replacing him. Ticktum had been battling it out alongside his former teammate throughout Season 8 and his best finish came in Rome when he finished 10th and earned some points too.

Formula E will be sad to see the departure of Turvey, who has been in the series since its inaugural season in 2014/15 with NIO 333. He was known as the “dark horse” amongst drivers and can be counted as underrated.

His best-ever season finish was 10th overall in the Drivers’ standings back in 2017/18. He also scored his best-ever finish that season with second in Mexico City.

Ticktum has already been in the Gen3 car, as he explained, “I’ve been in the car a couple of times and it’s a big step forward from Gen2; I have to say, I’ve really enjoyed it so far. I’m really looking forward to getting cracking with this new era of electric racing.”

More comments from Ticktum

The 23-year-old explained further to The Race about how he found the new Gen3 car during testing. He described how much better this car feels, in terms of power and weight:

“From the testing I’ve done in the NIO 333 ER9 already the car feels in a different league to the Gen2. It’s much better to drive and you definitely feel the difference in weight, and obviously, power. Overall, the car feels a lot more nimble, and more like a ‘traditional’ race car. I think it’s a very big step forward for the series and I’ve enjoyed developing the car with the team.

“We’ve felt we have had a good car since the very first Gen3 test, but have comparative running helped cement that. It’s a boost for the team in what is essentially the development of our first full car as 333 Racing, and testament to what our team has achieved to date.”
Ticktum is “very intelligent”

Ticktum’s engineer, Matt Beers, who is also set to stay on for the 2023 season, described the Brit as a “very intelligent guy”. This doesn’t mean that Ticktum hasn’t met any obstacles while growing up in his position. Beers explained that the work “can get quite emotional – there are ups and downs, but for me it’s been good.”

He said, “He’s a quick driver and he’s very quick to adapt so I think he gets used to the circuit, obviously we do the sim sessions, he learns the track there, but there’s still a bit of learning for him to do.”
