Sergio Sette Camara has been announced as Brendon Hartley’s replacement at the Dragon Formula E team for the final six races of the 2019-20 season.

The Red Bull and AlphaTauri Formula 1 reserve driver will partner Nico Muller at Dragon to contest the six races which will take place across nine days in August at the Tempelhof Airport in Berlin.

Sette Camara, who has acted as a reserve driver for the Dragon squad this year, also took part in the Marrakesh rookie test in which he set the second-fastest time.

Hartley parted was with Dragon last week after enduing a difficult rookie campaign for the ex-Toro Rosso F1 driver.

“I have been very impressed with Sergio on track in Marrakech, and in his work in the simulator with our engineers to continue to push the development of the PENSKE EV-4 package,” said Penske Formula E team boss Jay Penske.

"I look forward to seeing him on track in Berlin, and I fully expect him to challenge for points in his first races with the team.”

Sette Camara added: "The team and I had really strong chemistry in the Marrakech rookie test.

"We executed the programme, and performed well, finishing the day P2.

"I am delighted to share the news that I will work with them again, this time in a race situation, which makes it even more special.

"I want to thank Jay Penske and every member of Dragon Racing for giving me this opportunity."
