Jani told Swiss newspaper Bieler Tagblatt: “The team and I have decided that it is better for the future of both parties if we end the cooperation.”

It was recently confirmed that Jani would rejoin his old team Rebellion Racing in the LMP1 class of the World Endurance Championship, he will race alongside his former Porsche teammate, Andre Lotterer, who continues to race in the Formula E championship.

Jani’s replacement at Dragon Racing will be Toyota LMP1 driver Jose Maria Lopez, who lost his seat at DS Virgin Racing at the end of last season.
