Ex-F1 driver Jerome d'Ambrosio joins Dragon Racing for Formula E

The Belgian, who raced for Virgin and Lotus in F1, has so far tested for the China Racing entry, and was a regular frontrunner during the last two-day test at Donington Park.

Team owner Jay Penske said: "I am so pleased to have Jerome pilot one of our two Dragon Racing entries.

"After watching his performances in F1, as well as the most recent Formula E test, I feel that the combination of Jerome and our team should prove to be a formidable force."

IndyCar race winner Mike Conway will occupy the other Dragon car.

D'Ambrosio added: "It is with great excitement that I will be at the wheel of the Dragon Racing entry in the first season of the Formula E championship.

"I have watched the team closely over the last few months and feel that together we can achieve great results during the first season.
