Antonio Giovinazzi insisted whatever decision was made by Alfa Romeo in F1 that he would find another drive in a high profile championship.

A few hours after his Alfa Romeo departure and Guanyu Zhou's arrival into his F1 seat for 2022, Giovinazzi confirms his move to the all electric racing series Formula E.

He will partner Sergio Sette Camara at the Dragon Penske Autosport team, replacing Nico Mueller for 2022.

Pre-Season Testing for the series' 8th season kicks off at the end of this month, in between the Qatar and Saudi Grands Prix - making for a seamless move for Giovinazzi will little disruption to his F1 campaign.

"It’s going to be thrilling. It’s going to be challenging. It’s going to be: …….electrifying!!!"

Antonio Giovinazzi certainly radiated more excitement in his social media post confirming the move, than his earlier post on F1's "ruthless" nature when it comes to money - implying Alfa Romeo's decision to hire Alpine Academy driver Zhou as being solely influenced by that subject.

Dragon Racing also posted on their Instagram that they are "delighted" to announce the signing of Giovinazzi, with no official word on the contract length. However it is expected to be a one-year deal for the moment.

The timing of the announcement is of course related to Alfa Romeo's announcements of earlier on today, with Giovinazzi ensuring the news on his future is a part of the social media discussions.
