Salvador Duran raced most of the 2014-2015 FIA Formula E Championship season with Team Aguri, and the Mexican driver will return to the team for the balance of the 2015-’16 season.

Duran replaces Nathanael Berthon, who left the team earlier this week.

“I am very excited to have re-signed for Team Aguri. This is a very ambitious team with some of the best engineering and technical knowledge in Formula E, and I look forward to being part of an already successful season,” he said.

“Salvador is a perfect fit for the team and it’s great to have him joining us. His experience in the series is crucial, given the unique handling of these cars, and will play a major role in driving the team’s development forward for the remainder of the season and into next year,” added Marc Faggionato, owner of Team Aguri.

Venturi is still to announce a replacement for Jacques Villeneuve.
