Dragon Racing will be manufacturing their own powertrain in the 2016-17 season.
The American team is currently the only customer team in the championship, using powertrains provided by Venturi.
The arrangement with Venturi has been successful so far. Though the team had a poor Malaysian round, the opening round of the season bagged the team a lot of points. But Managing and Commercial Director, Oriol Servia, says the team having its own powertrain is the only way they can beat the rest.
“We just want to have full control of the car,” he said, at a press conference ahead of the third round. “At the moment we have been relying on Venturi, who have been great, but we want to be able to put our own package together and beat the rest.”
