Jerome d'Ambrosio has committed his future to Formula E after re-signing with Dragon Racing for the 2015-16 championship.

The former Formula 1 driver finished fourth in the inaugural Formula E championship after a late charge in the final few rounds saw him grab three rostrums, including the controversial victory in Berlin after Lucas di Grassi was disqualified post-race.

The Belgian says he's thrilled to see the American squad emerge as championship contenders and hopes to use that experience as a foundation for the season ahead.

"It is with great excitement that I will be at the wheel of the Dragon Racing entry for the second season of the FIA Formula E Championship," d'Ambrosio said. "I have watched the entire Dragon Racing organisation produce race wins and podium finishes, and I feel that we have the opportunity to build on the knowledge and experience we all gained in season one."

Dragon Racing team owner Jay Penske says he's delighted to secure the services of the 29-year-old to help maintain continuity in the programme.

"I am so pleased to have Jerome continue," Penske said. "After watching Jerome's performance on track and the way that he worked with his engineers and crew in the first season, I feel that season two will produce more podium finishes, and hopefully more results like in Berlin and London."

D'Ambrosio has been testing with the team in private sessions and will spearhead Dragon Racing at the official tests at Donington Park next month.
