Jean-Eric Vergne will continue to race with G-Drive Racing in the LMP2 class of sports car racing in 2019 after agreeing a new contract last week.

Reigning Formula E champion Vergne linked up with G-Drive in sports cars for 2018, and went unbeaten on-track with the team until September, taking ELMS wins at Monza, Spielberg and Silverstone, as well as a WEC win at Spa.

Vergne also initially won the LMP2 class race at the 24 Hours of Le Mans alongside Roman Rusinov and Antonio Pizzitola, only for the #26 Oreca 07 Gibson, only for the car to be disqualified over a fuel infringement.

Alongside his commitments in Formula E with DS Techeetah, Vergne confirmed last week he would be continuing to race with G-Drive in 2019, signing up for a full season in ELMS.

The team confirmed via Facebook that Vergne would share the car with Rusinov once again, with a third driver set to be confirmed at a later date.

G-Drive Racing is yet to finalise its racing plans for 2019, but should it opt to return to ELMS, Vergne would be available for all but two races on the schedule, with the races at Paul Ricard and Monza taking place on Formula E weekends.
