Formula E driver Sam Bird will not be able to take part in the season finale in Seoul due to a fracture in his left hand. Norman Nato, the Jaguar team's reserve driver, will replace Bird.

Bird suffered an injury on lap one of the London ePrix last Sunday. After finishing the race with his injury, a precautionary scan of the driver's left hand was performed, which revealed a fracture. Jaguar announced this through its social media channels.

100th race in FE

Bird's reaction: “I’m devastated not to be driving in the final two rounds of the season in Seoul, particularly as it would have been my 100th race in Formula E," says Bird. "I need to spend the next few weeks recovering from the operation on my left hand, so I am fully fit for testing and Season 9. I have confidence in Norman, he is a race winner and I’m sure he’ll bring some great points home for Jaguar TCS Racing.
