Could Formula E world champion Jake Dennis join F1?

-

Formula E world champion Jake Dennis has revealed he has no intention to join Formula 1, despite the possibility of Andretti joining the championship from 2026.

Dennis, who is Red Bull‘s development driver, won the 2023 Formula E title with Andretti in just his third season in the series, setting new records for the most points and podiums scored.

Meanwhile, Andretti have joined forces with General Motors to join F1 in 2026, when the new technical regulations make their debut, and are awaiting the FIA‘s decision on their formal entry bid from May.

“My plan is to continue with Formula E for many more seasons,” Dennis told Total-Motorsport.com and selected media outlets. “I don’t have any aspirations to go elsewhere. 

Andretti are obviously on the fringes of F1. They are pushing hard to try and get a spot and to make it a 24-car grid.

“From my side, I don’t see myself moving to F1. It’s a difficult situation. I’m 28 years of age now and generally on the taller side, in terms of driver height, so it wouldn’t really work too well if I moved to F1 because I would generally be at a disadvantage to everyone else. 

“We will see how it plays out over the years but I think I will probably just continue my work with Red Bull and try and help develop their racecar as much as we possibly can.”

No plans to join IndyCar

Another earlier possibility for Dennis in 2024 would be IndyCar as at least one of Andretti drivers Devlin DeFrancesco and Romain Grosjean are expected to leave the team at the end of this year.

But, Dennis has confirmed he will see out his Formula E contract with Andretti, which runs until at least the end of 2024.

“Right now I’m just thoroughly enjoying Formula E,” Dennis added. “I feel like I have a really good lifestyle balance, I’m enjoying my racing and having the best time with that.

“I still have a balance of normal life with family and friends and getting to enjoy my social life, which is important to me, so I have no aspirations to move to IndyCar or anything like that and we will just try and win the world title next year as well.”

When is the 2024 Formula E season?

The new Formula E season begins with pre-season testing from Valencia at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo from October 23-27, with Mexico City hosting the 2024 opener on January 13.
