Dragon completes its driver line up with Max Günther

Dragon announces its line-up for the 2018/19 season of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship - with Max Guenther joining Jose Maria Lopez at the American-based outfit.

Guenther, who is currently competing in Formula 2 with BWT Arden, is no stranger to Formula E. The German was the team's test and reserve driver last season, and also competed in the Formula E rookie test in Marrakesh earlier this year. Most recently, Guenther shared the no.6 seat with Antonio Fuoco at pre-season testing, finishing 14th and posting a lap time of 1:17.947s.

"I’m really happy to compete with Dragon in the upcoming ABB FIA Formula E championship,” says Guenther. “We made great progress during our development with the more powerful and complex Gen2 Car. It’s an exciting challenge for both the engineers and the driver, and I’m enjoying every second driving it.”                      

Guenther added: “The working atmosphere inside the team is fantastic, I feel really comfortable and can’t wait to get the new season started. Certainly, I will give it my all to deliver the best possible results for the team. I want to thank Jay Penske and the entire Dragon team for their trust and for giving me the opportunity to race in this first-class championship. 

“I’m very pleased to give Max the opportunity to race in the no. 6 car this season,” added Jay Penske, Dragon’s Founder, Owner, and Team Principal. “Maximilian did a tremendous job building rapport with the team and working with the entire organisation on the development of the Penske EV-3. Maximilian has shown himself to be a true competitor. I’m looking forward to seeing the results of his hard work in season five.”
