Müller has however driven nearly everything else that Audi is racing during 2017. He has run in the FIA World Rallycross Championship at selected rounds for the EKS team in an Audi S1 WRX, and he has driven the Nürburgring and Spa 24 Hours races in an Audi R8 LMS.

The team usually has Lucas di Grassi and Daniel Abt running in the FIA Formula E Championship, but the Sunday test in Marrakesh in only for drivers who hasn’t raced in the electric series. It is the electric equivalent to the Young driver test that Formula 1 is having each year, following the season in Abu Dhabi. Only difference is that this is happening in the middle of the season, prior to the cars being shipped to South America for Round 4-6 in Santiago, Chile – Mexico City, Mexico og Punta del Este, Uruguay receptively.
