Aguri drops Berthon from FE line-up
25 January 2016 – Team Aguri has dropped Nathanaël Berthon from its Formula E driver line-up ahead of the Buenos Aires ePrix, freeing up a space alongside António Félix da Costa.
French racer Berthon, 26, scored points on his series debut in China, but failed to finish in the top 10 in Malaysia and Uruguay as Félix da Costa recorded successive top six finishes.
Aguri and Berthon have since parted ways, with his replacement yet to be decided.
"We would like to thank Nathanaël for his dedication to the team and wish him the very best in his future Formula E career," commented Aguri team boss Mark Preston.
"We are carefully considering our options and will announce his replacement in due course."
"I am determined, more than ever, to continue my career in Formula E and I would like to thank Team Aguri for giving me a start in the series," added Berthon, who has raced in GP2 since 2012.
"I am confident I will race and score points in the Paris ePrix on April 23."
