Earning more than 250 points over an eleven year F1 career and competing in every race in the inaugural Formula E season,  the German racing driver has a reputation for competing at the highest level and earning the nickname, "Quick Nick."

Nick Heidfeld said, "I am very excited to join Mahindra Racing for the second Formula E season. Mahindra's high ambitions are aligned with lessons  learned from season one and actions taken for year two. When I tested the M2Electro in Spain, I found a determined  team that shares my racing passion. My target  is to win and I believe our combined experience and skills will  ensure  we maximise our chances."

Mahindra Racing enters the second ever Formula E season as one of eight manufacturers developing its own electric powertrain to power its quartet  of cars.

Anand Mahindra, Chairman and Managing Director of the Mahindra Group said, "Nick's appointment marks a new milestone in the journey of the Mahindra Racing team. This year, we race not only under the Mahindra brand but in a Mahindra developed and powered car. This is a significant moment in what is proving to be a global showcase for electric vehicle technology and I look forward to seeing Nick take the wheel of the M2Electro in Beijing."

Dilbagh Gill, Team Principal of Mahindra Racing Formula E team, said, "I am very proud to welcome Nick to the Mahindra Racing family. He brings a wealth of experience to the team and we were impressed with his performances in the inaugural Formula E season.  Nick has also been an integral part of testing the M2Electro with our team. Mahindra Racing is targeting top results  this season and with over 2,000km of pre-season testing successfully completed, we are confident we are giving Nick the car to do it. We have been particularly impressed with how quickly he has got up to speed with the technical aspects of the car, as well as the gains we have made in its refinement since he joined us.?

Nick will pilot the M2 Electro at the 2015/2016 Formula E pre-season tests which begin on Monday 10th  August alongside Bruno Senna who continues with the team.

Dilbagh Gill, "We learned a lot in our first season and that is in no small part due to our top class driver pairing. Bruno and Karun have been a very positive force in the team throughout the year. Bruno will continue with our team and we thank Karun for the part he played in setting up the team. He fondly remains  a member  of the extended Mahindra family.[/fusion_text]
