Tom Blomqvist will replace out-going Formula E driver James Calado at the Jaguar team for the final two races in Berlin following a World Endurance Championship calendar clash.

As previously reported by Autosport, Calado's maiden FE season was expected to end early owing to the 12/13 August races at Tempelhof Airport overlapping with the WEC Spa round.

Ferrari confirmed to Autosport last month that the Briton would be required in the AF Corse-entered 488 GTE Evo for first practice on 13 August.
