Dragon Racing has announced that Sergio Sette Camara will replace Brendon Hartley for the remaining six races of the 2019/2020 Formula E season.
The American team did not provide a reason to why the split with Hartley has occurred, but instead, Jay Penske the team Principal and Owner of the Dragon Racing team explained his reasoning to why Sette Camara got the drive for the final races of the season
“I have been very impressed with Sérgio on track in Marrakesh, and in his work in the simulator with our engineers to continue to push the development of the PENSKE EV-4 package,” said Penske. “I look forward to seeing him on track in Berlin, and I fully expect him to challenge for points in his first races with the team.”
Sette Camara is looking forward to the opportunity to impress the team in these six races, as the Brazilian tries to secure a spot on the grid for next season.
“The team and I had really strong chemistry in the Marrakech Rookie Test,” said Sette Camara. “We executed the program, and performed well, finishing the day P2. I am delighted to share the news that I will work with them again, this time in a race situation, which makes it even more special. I want to thank Jay Penske and every member of Geox Dragon Racing for giving me this opportunity.”
Joel Eriksson will remain on standby as GEOX DRAGON’s Reserve Driver for the final races of the season.
