Rebranded Dragon / Penske Formula E team reveals striking new livery

The rebranded Dragon / Penske Autosport team has revealed a striking matte white and chrome red livery for Formula E's 2020-21 season

Rebranded Dragon / Penske Formula E team reveals striking new livery

The new look marks a departure from the black-and-white colour scheme Dragon used for the first two seasons of the Gen2 era, including the 2019-20 campaign that concluded with a quick run of six races in Berlin in August.

Dragon finished 11th out of 12 teams in the 2019-20 Formula E standings, with its only points-scoring finish coming courtesy of Brendon Hartley's drive to ninth in the second Diriyah race.

Multiple Le Mans 24 Hours winner Hartley was replaced in the team's line-up for the second part of the season by Sergio Sette Camara, who was announced as Dragon's first driver for the 2020-21 campaign.

The identity of Sette Camara's team-mate is yet to be revealed, but Nico Muller is widely expected to continue in the second seat.

The DTM frontrunner took to Twitter to reveal that he will be driving for the outfit in the official three-day Valencia pre-season test, but stopped short of confirming if he will race for Dragon next year.

PLUS: How Formula E's pre-season test venue provides confusion and clarity

Muller made his Formula E debut with Dragon in 2019-20 but struggled with an uncompetitive package, failing to score a single point all season and finishing down in 25th place in the championship.

It is unclear if Formula E will become Muller's primary racing programme in 2021 following Audi's exit from the DTM, a decision that has prompted the series to switch to privateer teams and GT3 cars.

Muller has been a regular in the DTM since 2014 and finished runner-up to fellow factory Audi driver Rene Rast in the past two seasons.

Rast will also feature on the Formula E grid next season after a starring debut in Berlin in August convinced Audi to sign him for a full campaign alongside 2016-17 champion Lucas di Grassi.

The outfit will run under the Dragon / Penske Autosport banner in 2020-21 to highlight the involvement of team principal Jay Penske, the son of legendary team boss and entrepreneur Roger Penske.
