Stephane Sarrazin has moved to Techeetah for the rest of the season from Venturi to replace Esteban Gutierrez, with Tom Dillmann stepping into the Venturi stalwart’s shoes.
The official statement reads:
The Frenchman with a legal Venturi deal for the current season will be released for the rest of the season to race for Techeetah. The race seat at the Renault customer team became available as their driver Esteban Gutierrez replaces the injured IndyCar driver Sebastien Bourdais.
As a result of last minute negotiations, Venturi agreed on Stephane Sarrazin to finish the running Season 3 with the Renault customer team. Sarrazin has been a Venturi driver since the Formula E debut season.
Consequence of these driver switches is Tom Dillmann’s next chance at Venturi. In his Formula E debut race in Paris last month, the Frenchman delivered in fine style to finish eighth and scored important championship points for the team.
