Dennis contested the DTM for R-Motorsport Aston Martin in 2019 and, with a sixth place, got the best result of the season for an Aston Martin driver. In the same year, he secured pole position in the Bathurst 12 Hours and finished in P2 in the race to make it onto the podium. He completed test drives for the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Formula 1 team in 2018, where he is regularly employed as a simulator and development driver. With appearances and successes in Formula 1, the DTM, GT racing and single-seater racing, he has been demonstrating his great versatility for many years now.
“I’m really looking forward to the new challenge that awaits me in Formula E, and would like to thank all those in charge at BMW i Andretti Motorsport for their trust,” said Dennis. “I’m aware that I will be confronted with unique requirements in Formula E, which I will need to get used to first, but versatility has always been one of my strengths, and I am confident that, with the help of the team and my fellow driver Maximilian Günther, I will quickly get my bearings. Formula E is one of those race series that, as a racing driver, you really want to be involved in at the moment because the level of manufacturers, teams and drivers is higher there than anywhere else. I can’t wait to be starting a Formula E race in the BMW iFE.21 for the very first time.”
