Andreasen worked in Formula 1 for 17 years, of which 10 were at McLaren, plus Force India and Williams. The Dane recently served as Jose Maria López’s chief racing engineer during last season’s New York stage.
In Dragon, for the 2018/19 Championship, he will oversee the engineering operations of all squadrons.
“I’m thrilled to be back on the track working with Jay and the entire Dragon team in Formula E,” Andreasen said.
“Dragon is exactly what I’ve been looking for both in team and in company. The whole operation is a very united and coherent unit. I believe this will be one of our main advantages as the series continues to grow and the level of competition continues to increase.
“I am very impressed with every aspect of the championship, from the locals, to the accessibility to the fans, to the level of competition with great races and some of the elite teams and riders in any paddock.”
Andreasen has also had experiences in Champ Car, British Touring Cars and DTM. For Jay Penske, owner of Dragon and team director, the experience and expertise of the new member will help accelerate the evolution of the team.
Dragon finished ninth in the fourth season of Formula E with 41 points and Jerome D’Ambrosio scoring the team’s best result in the Zurich round in June.
