Mouser Electronics congratulates the Dragon Racing Formula E Team on their strong finish to the exciting all-electric car Formula E racing season at the London ePrix. At the final race of the 2015–2016 season, Dragon’s Jerome D’Ambrosio was promoted to third place and his teammate Loic Duval into fourth, after three teams were hit with time penalties for exceeding the permitted energy limit. The Mouser-sponsored Dragon Team finishes the season in convincing style, missing out on a third-place team standing by just a single point.
“This podium finish is an incredible way to end a fantastic season,” said Todd McAtee, Vice President, Americas Business Development for Mouser Electronics. “Mouser congratulates everyone connected with the team as well as our valued supplier partners Panasonic and Molex. It’s been really exciting to sponsor Dragon Racing, and we hope they can build on this success next year.”
