Jerome D’Ambrosio said, ‘I am proud to be continuing with Dragon Racing for my third season in Formula E. Together we have made great progress in developing the car and I am confident that I will be adding to my two wins for the team next year.’
Loïc Duval said, ‘The entire team has worked extremely hard and we have shown the advances that we have made in our on-track performance. Consistency will be key in capitalising on the gains that we have made, in addition to building on our new technical affiliation. I am excited about our future together.’
