Matthew Brabham (born 25th February 1994) was an FIA Formula E Championship driver, who competed for Andretti Autosport, having replaced Charles Pic a few days before the 2014 Putrajaya ePrix.[1] Of American and Australian birth, Brabham is the grandson of Formula One legend Jack Brabham, the only man to win the World Championship in a car built by his own team.[2]

BackgroundEdit

Brabham started karting at the age of seven, being raised in a family that bled motorsport. His grandfather and two uncles had raced in Formula One, while his father was prominent in Australian motorsport.[2] In 2010, aged just 16, Brabham entered the Australian Formula Ford Championship, taking a victory in a state race before taking on the national championship.[2]

After two years in Formula Ford, Brabham moved to the US, in order to compete in the USF 2000 Championship.[2] Four wins gave him the "Rookie of the Year" award, and saw him promoted to the Pro Mazda Series, starting his relationship with Andretti Autosport.[2] Another successful season saw him take another "Rookie of the Year" title, as well as the championship with 13 wins.[2]

A move to Indy Lights followed, with Andretti still supporting the American-Aussie. A single victory and fourth place in the championship were the result of Brabham's work, before the Formula E Championship drew him in.[2]

Formula E HistoryEdit

Brabham was named as an Andretti Autosport driver a few days before the 2014 Putrajaya ePrix, replacing Charles Pic, whom was absent with F1 commitments.[2] A quiet début saw him claim thirteenth, while a retirement in Punta del Este meant he failed to score in his first two races.[3] Brabham missed the following two ePrix due to other commitments, ultimately replaced by Scott Speed, after a one-off drive for Marco Andretti.[4]
