Belgium’s d’Ambrosio started the first Formula E season quietly but consistently. Following his win in Berlin, he became a front runner, and a very strong end to the season means he can be expected to compete for the championship this time around.
After starting car racing in 2003 where he won the Formula Renault 1.6 title in his native Belgium, d’Ambrosio followed this up with 4th in French Formula Renault in 2004. 2005 brought 3rd in the Italian Formula Renault Winter Series and 4th in the main campaign. After a tough year moving between several championships in 2006, the next year would be highly successful as d’Ambrosio won the inaugural International Formula Master title.
Three years of GP2 then followed with the DAMS team, with one win each in the GP2 Series and GP2 Asia Series, before a graduation to F1 in 2011 with Marussia Virgin Racing. After being unable to score any points with the backmarker team, d’Ambrosio became Lotus’ third driver in 2012, participating in the Italian Grand Prix in the place of a suspended Romain Grosjean. In 2014, d’Ambrosio competed in GT racing before joining the Formula E grid.
