Andretti will return as an independent outfit with BMW leaving the all-electric series after this weekend’s Berlin finale.

The American team will continue to use BMW powertrains, led by Michael Andretti.

Dennis has enjoyed a stunning rookie season, winning twice which puts him in title contention.

The British driver sits fourth in the championship with two races to go, 14 points behind Mercedes’ Nyck de Vries.

Speaking of the announcement, Dennis said: “I’m just super excited, and honored really, to be staying with Andretti for season eight of Formula E,” said Dennis. “It was my goal to obviously always stay with the team, and I think they had the same intentions after such a strong year. I’m looking forward to investing further on with them into the future and hopefully many great results will come our way.”

Michael Andretti added: “As a founding team of Formula E, we’re as committed as ever to the Series, and everything it stands for. Our participation in Formula E supports our goal of offering exciting racing, in all of its forms, to fans.”

“Season eight will look different for us as we return to an independent team but announcing Jake’s continuation will provide strong continuity and is just the first step in building out a new and exciting direction. We’re excited to welcome back a great deal of the staff and crew, while continuing to give our global fans a place to call home. We look forward to many more seasons of wheel-to-wheel racing and a future of electric mobility.”
