Tom Blomqvist wants to re-ignite his Formula E career after describing a need to address what he says is “unfinished business” in the all-electric championship.
Blomqvist completed half a season in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship with Andretti in 2017-18.
He scored points with an eighth place finish on his debut at Marrakesh but was replaced in the team by Stephane Sarrazin for the Berlin E-Prix later in the season.
Sarrazin failed to score any points in his subsequent four outings with the team which was finalizing its full integration into BMW i Andretti Motorsport which took over the entry for 2018-19.
Since then, Blomqvist has tested for BMW i Andretti Motorsport on occasion, during manufacturer allocated running.
The British driver forged a significant reputation in single-seater racing earlier in his career. This included finishing second in the 2014 FIA Formula 3 European Championship between champion Esteban Ocon and third-placed Max Verstappen.
“I definitely want to race again in Formula E as I feel there is definite unfinished business there,” Blomqvist told e-racing365.
“I was at the Berlin E-Prix and the level of competition is pretty intense, so I feel it would be a championship I feel that I would thrive in, to be honest.
“The program in Season Four is history now and everyone knows it was a tough year all-round. But I am fully motivated to get back in to Formula E should the opportunity arise.”
The 25-year-old and current BMW Formula E driver Alexander Sims tested together at the pre-season Valencia test in 2017.
On that occasion Blomqvist was chosen to partner Antonio Felix da Costa for 2017-18 but was forced to sit out the season-opening Hong Kong double-header after a team sponsor pushed through a deal for Kamui Kobayashi to make a brief cameo.
BMW is believed likely to retain Sims as one of its drivers for the upcoming 2019-20 campaign.
Should da Costa accept a widely-rumored offer to join Jean-Eric Vergne at DS Techeetah, then BMW has, in addition to Blomqvist, options of DTM drivers Marco Wittmann, Joel Eriksson and Bruno Spengler.
E-racing365 understands that both Sims and da Costa are scheduled to test for the team next week.
