García's presence at the Berlin E-Prix is a beacon of inspiration for aspiring female racers, symbolising the sport's approach to inclusivity and accessibility. Her inclusion perfectly aligns with Formula E's steadfast commitment to diversity and to creating a level playing field for talent.

"We are incredibly excited to welcome Marta García to the ERT Formula E family for the Berlin Rookie Test," said Alex Hui, Team Principal of ERT Formula E Team in a statement. "Marta's exceptional talent and achievements in F1 Academy are undeniable. This test serves as a fantastic platform to showcase her skills within the dynamic environment of Formula E. We are confident that Marta will quickly adapt to the unique demands of electric racing and provide valuable insights for the team."

"I am thrilled to join ERT Formula E Team for the Berlin Rookie Test," said García in a statement. "Formula E represents the future of motorsport, and I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity to experience it firsthand. I've been following the championship closely, and I'm eager to get behind the wheel of the ERT X24 car and contribute to the team's development. This test is a stepping stone in my career, and I'm determined to make the most of it."
