Formula E: Jake Dennis signs multi-year contract extension with Andretti
Andretti Global announced on Wednesday that reigning Formula E World Champion Jake Dennis has signed a multi-year contract extension to continue racing for Andretti Formula E in season 11 and beyond. Team owner Michael Andretti sees the Briton as an essential factor for success.
"We are super excited to be able to announce the multi-year extension of Jake's contract", says team principal Roger Griffiths. "Jake has been an integral part of the Andretti Formula E team for three seasons now and has proven time after time that he is one of the most competitive and talented drivers on the Formula E grid. We are all excited for what’s to come in the seasons ahead!"
Dennis made his Formula E debut with Andretti in 2021, ahead of season 7, quickly showcasing his skills with two victories and challenging for the title in what was one of the most successful rookie seasons to date. In addition to his Formula E success, Dennis serves as a development driver for the Red Bull Racing F1 team and is also a BMW Factory driver.
"I began my Formula E journey with Andretti, and I'm excited to continue working with the team that has supported my career in this series", says Dennis. "I've got immense respect for this team, and it will be an honour to continue as a driver for Andretti Global. The Gen3 era is an exciting time for us with the relationship with Porsche supplying the powertrain, which I won the Championship title with last season. I'm super motivated for next year."
