Trulli to race in Formula E with own team
18 June 2014 – Formula 1 race winner Jarno Trulli is to make his single-seater return this season after confirming that he will race in the inaugural Formula E Championship with his own team.
The Italian will compete for his TrulliGP Formula E team after the FIA approved the decision for him to take over the entry originally granted to Drayson Racing.
Drayson Technologies will remain involved in the championship as they will enter into a 'supply and sponsorship' partnership with Trulli's team.
"I am pleased that the FIA selected TrulliGP to be part of the FIA Formula E Championship," said Trulli, who has not raced since he left Formula 1 at the start of 2012.
"Having gained fantastic experience as a driver in Formula 1, my involvement in the FIA Formula E Championship will certainly be a new challenge, not only as a driver but also as a team owner.
"Competing at the highest level of performance with a clean energy car with the support of Drayson Technologies makes this challenge even more exciting. I am very pleased to be a pioneer of this new Formula E project."
