D’Ambrosio not planning to add more series to schedule

Leave a comment

BERLIN, Germany – Formula E driver Jerome d’Ambrosio is not looking to add any more series to his schedule so he can focus on his commitments with Dragon Racing.

D’Ambrosio has been in a fine run of form in the second Formula E season, picking up his second ePrix victory in Mexico following Lucas di Grassi’s disqualification.

While many drivers opt to balance Formula E with another series such as the FIA World Endurance Championship or DTM, d’Ambrosio is happy dedicating his time to Dragon.

“I really enjoy the category, I love what I do here, I’m probably the only driver actually who only does that,” d’Ambrosio told NBC Sports.

“I’m not planning on really looking at something else because I like it here. This is where I want to be.

“Right now, my priority is Formula E.”

D’Ambrosio ranks his two seasons in Formula E among the best of his career, having finished fourth in last year’s championship and enjoying another strong campaign this time around.

“I’ve had strong moments. At the last race I was outside the points finishing the race, that was the first time for me in Formula E,” the ex-Formula 1 and GP2 racer said.

“If I wasn’t in the points before, it was because of a drive-through or an accident, not like that. It ranks in the highest ones.

“I think I haven’t had such good seasons as the last two years. Last year, the finish was also pretty amazing. So I’m looking forward to keeping that momentum.”

The NTT IndyCar Series is racing just outside of St. Louis this weekend at World Wide Technology Raceway Gateway.

The last oval race of the season, tonight’s  Bommarito Auto Motive Group promises to bring plenty of high-speed, high-stakes racing action under the lights.

Series point leader Josef Newgarden will start tonight’s race from the pole position, with Sebastian Bourdais starting alongside him in row one.

By winning the pole, Newgarden gained an additional championship point, which extends his lead over Alexander Rossi to 36 points.

Rossi start’s tonight’s race from the 11th position after an uncharacteristically poor qualifying run for the No. 27 team, while Simon Pagenaud (third in the standings, 41 points behind) will start from the fourth position and Scott Dixon (fourth in the standings, 53 points behind) will start from eighth.

Here is today’s schedule:

(All times are Eastern)

Saturday 8/24, 4:20 p.m. ET, Indy Lights race, NBC Sports Gold 

Saturday 8/24, 8 p.m. ET, Bommarito Automotive Group 500, NBCSN and streaming live
