Nathanael Berthon completes 2015/16 Formula E line-up at Aguri

The 26-year-old Frenchman had tested for Aguri at Donington Park during the summer and will be making his FE race debut with the team in the season-opener in Beijing next weekend.

"I am really thankful to Aguri [Suzuki], Mark [Preston] and the whole team to have given me the chance to show what I could bring to the team at Donington Park during testing last month," said Berthon.

"For me, it is a good new challenge and I think we can look forward to a very good season with the proven package that Aguri has worked on improving during the off-season."

Aguri is joining Andretti Autosport in continuing with the season-one Spark SRT_01E package, and has re-signed DTM race winner Antonio Felix da Costa for its other car.

Berthon has spent 2015 so far competing in both GP2 with Lazarus and the European Le Mans Series with Murphy Prototypes.

He has been around the GP2 scene since the 2011 Asia series, with one win to his name in 2013's Hungaroring sprint race.
