Berthon left Aguri Formula E team
Changes in the drivers line-ups after just three races this season seem to be very popular among the FIA Formula E championship teams.
Nathanael Berthon left Aguri Formula E team before Buenos Aires ePrix. The French driver had a solid start in 2015/2016 campaign as he scored points in Beijing, but failed to impress in Putrajaya and Punta del Este.
Berthon confident about his future in the series
“I am determined, more than ever, to continue my career in Formula E and I would like to thank Team Aguri for giving me a start in the series. I am confident I will race and score points in the Paris ePrix on April 23,” said Berthon after parting ways with Aguri team.
The Japanese side now has to react quickly and find a proper driver for the race in Argentina scheduled for the 6th of February.
“We are carefully considering our options and will announce Nathanael’s replacement in due course,” commented Mark Preston, team principal of Team Aguri.
Earlier this month, Venturi team announced Mike Conway as a replacement for Jacques Villeneuve.
