Team Aguri has announced that Nathanael Berthon is to leave the team with immediate effect.

Berthon parts company with Team Aguri despite a positive start to the season, which included a point scoring debut in Beijing.

Team Aguri team principal, Mark Preston thanked Berthon for his commitment to the team, “We would like to thank Nathanael for his dedication to the team and wish him the very best in his future Formula E career.”

“We are carefully considering our options and will announce his replacement in due course.”

Berthon was also thankful for the opportunity, but the Frenchman is determined to return for his home race. “I am determined, more than ever, to continue my career in Formula E and I would like to thank Team Aguri for giving me a start in the series.”

“I am confident I will race and score points in the Paris ePrix on April 23.”

Team Aguri have yet to announce Berthon replacement ahead of the next round in Argentina on February 6th.
