Günther ‘moving towards a decision’ on Formula E future
Dragon Racing driver Maxi Günther says he’s spoken to other teams about a Formula E seat for next season but says he won’t make a decision on his future until after the season finale in New York.
Günther has caught the eye this season with a string of impressive performances for Jay Penske’s Dragon Racing team despite being replace for three rounds by ex-F1 driver Felipe Nasr and spending much of the season on a race-by-race deal.
With only a handful of teams having confirmed their driver lineups for next season, Günther admits he has spoken to people elsewhere on the grid about his Formula E future.
“At the moment the focus is fully on this season but of course, I am having talks for next season and my goal is clearly to be in Formula E,” Günther told eRacing Magazine.
“It will be the week after New York [when plans are to be confirmed, but] things are moving towards a decision.
“I’m talking to people and having conversions about next year but I cannot say at the moment in which direction I will go. I want to fight for the best position possible, that’s my goal as a sportsman and a race driver and that’s what I’m pushing for.
“When it’s time to talk about next season I will make a decision myself.”
Günther says he not only wants a quick car for his second season in Formula E but also one with ‘potential’ and hasn’t ruled out combining his FE duties with a drive in another championship.
“This year was maybe a bit more of a challenge compared to a normal season, but my philosophy was always to just make the best of what I had,” said Günther.
“I think in general it’s important to see the potential and to see the package at the moment but as well for the future.
“There are many factors that you take into consideration when you choose a team but for me, and I think this is the same for everybody here, everybody wants to fight for the championship.
“At the moment, as I’m standing here, I would not say no [to racing in another championship alongside Formula E]. I want to be here next year again but there are other championships as well and it’s possible to combine things to have a very complete programme.”
