Matthew Brabham, grandson of three-time Formula 1 world champion Sir Jack Brabham, has been confirmed to replace Charles Pic for the Putrajaya ePrix.

The American-born driver will race alongside Franck Montagny for Andretti in the second race of the 2014/2015 FIA Formula E Championship.

At 1.59miles (2.56km) and featuring 12 turns, the Putrajaya street circuit is located near the Perdana Putra housing the Prime Minister’s Office, using much of the main high street and passing several of the city’s most recognisable buildings such as the Ministry of Finance. It also encompasses the beautiful Seri Wawasan Bridge and Putra Mosque and will see drivers tackle a mixture of straights, slow to medium speed corners, a hairpin plus a tight first-corner chicane.
