Daniel Ticktum (born 8 June 1999 in London, Middlesex, UK) is a British racing driver, who competes in the 2021/22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship with the NIO 333 FE Team.[1] A driver with a controversial past, Ticktum joined the NIO squad alongside Oliver Turvey after being overlooked for a seat in Formula One.[1]

Background

Ticktum began his racing career in karting at the age of eight, racing though the various categories until 2014, when he would finish as Vice Champion in the WSK Masters series. He duly signed up to join the recently formed MSA Formula and would take an early lead in the 2015 Championship while forming an intense rivalry with Ricky Collard.[2] That, ultimately, came to a head at the Silverstone round, where Ticktum overtook ten cars during a safety car in order to deliberately crash into Collard.[2]

As a result Ticktum would receive a two-year ban from competing in any motorsport event, effective from December 2015, although the second year was suspended.[2]

Ban Bounce-back: 2017 - 2019

Ticktum would make his racing return towards the end of 2016, miraculously obtaining a seat in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship with Carlin Motorsport for the season finale.[3] The Brit also secured a drive at the Macau Grand Prix, before becoming a member of the Red Bull Junior Team in January 2017.[4] With Red Bull backing Ticktum would secure a seat in the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 in 2017.[4]

One win in Formula Renault in 2017 would see Ticktum finish in seventh overall, although he would end the season on a high by sweeping to victory at the Macau Grand Prix.[5] He would also make a handful of appearances in the GP3 Series, claiming a podium in the final race of the season, before obtaining a full season seat in the European F3 Championship for 2018.[6][7] It would be another controversial season for Ticktum, in which he would imply that Championship rival Mick Schumacher was getting better equipment, before ultimately finishing as runner-up to the German come the end of the season.[8]

Regardless, Ticktum would again head to Macau and claim his second win in the Grand Prix, before securing his debut in FIA Formula 2 Championship at the end of the 2018 season.[9] After his F2 debut, the Red Bull Junior Team moved Ticktum to the Japanese Super Formula championship for 2019, although midway through a difficult rookie season, the British racer was dropped from the RBJT and Super Formula.[10][11]

F2 Fortunes: 2020 - 2021

Ticktum completed the 2019 season with a campaign in the Asian Winter Series, before the Williams F1 Team adopted him as a junior driver for 2020.[12] That connection earned Ticktum a full campaign in the 2020 F2 Championship, although the Brit would finish mid-table in the condensed season with a single victory.[11] Ticktum remained in F2 for 2021, with a switch of teams seeing the Brit challenge for the title into the final two rounds of the season.[11]

Formula E History

Ticktum had been touted as a potential driver in Formula E throughout the post-season break after the 2020/21 season, although it was only on the eve of the 2021 Valencia Test that the Brit's plans were unveiled.[1] On 25 November Ticktum was announced as the second driver for the NIO 333 FE Team for the 2021/22 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, partnering Oliver Turvey for the full season.[1] Ticktum's first taste of an FE car would come at the Valencia test three days later.[1]
