Faraday Future Dragon Racing to Compete in Third Running of Buenos Aires ePrixraday Future Dragon Racing returns for round three of the 2016/17season of the FIA Formula E championship on the Puerto Madero track in the heart of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Team drivers Loic Duval (no. 6) and Jerome D'Ambrosio (no. 7) captured drivers' championship points in the first rounds of the season in Hong Kong and Marrakech, Morocco, even after overcoming some mechanical setbacks during portions of each race weekend. However, the three-month break since the Marrakech ePrix has allowed the team at Faraday Future Dragon Racing to continue to improve the powertrain and hone the car setup for the rest of the season.

"The lull between Marrakech and Buenos Aires allowed the team to collaborate with our technical partner Faraday Future to continue to develop the car," said Duval. "I also had some chances to practice on racing simulators and I'm looking forward to getting back on the track to acheive positive results."

The 1.54-mile Puerto Madero street circuit is the only venue to feature an ePrix in every season since the all-electric racing series' inception in 2014. D'Ambrosio holds the fastest lap record in Buenos Aires, achieved in Season 2 with a time of 1:10:285.

"The 12-turn circuit in Buenos Aires offers variable levels of track conditions and surfaces with tight turns and varying straights," said D'Ambrosio. "After driving Faraday Future's newest vehicle, the FF 91 at CES, I know we have the team that can produce the car that can continue to flourish in these challenging street racing competitions."
