Antonio Giovinazzi Secures Seat In Formula E

Latest Episode | Cut To The Race Podcast

After it was confirmed by Alfa Romeo that Antonio would depart at the end of the season, he’s now set to join Formula E.

Giovinazzi got a seat to drive with Dragon/Penske Autosport. He will race alongside Brazilian racing driver, Sergio Sette Camara who recently extended his deal with the team.

Antonio admitted, “As soon as it was made public that I would not be in Formula 1 next year, I have decided to participate in the Formula E world championship. It is a category which I always followed, I am thrilled to be part of Dragon/Penske in this all electric racing series which I have already tested three years ago. I would like to thank Jay Penske who immediately showed great interest for having me on board.

The Italian racing driver is popular with his team and fans as well. It’s a sad day to lose him in Formula 1 yet exciting to see what the future holds.

Last year, Dragon/Penske Autosport ended their season 11th out of 12 teams in the Formula E championship. The 27-year old has a chance to improve their position.

Giovinazzi will test Dragon/Penske’s Formula E cars at a pre-season session in Valencia. It’ll happen in between the final stages of the Formula 1 Grands Prix in Qatar and Saudi Arabia during the week of 29 November to 02 December 2021.
