“It is an incredibly sad day not just for Jean-Paul’s family, DAMS and the Nissan e.dams team but our entire sport.
“Jean-Paul was one of the first to commit his organization to the concept of Formula E.
“Jean-Paul never backed down from a challenge and his results speak for themselves.
“His organization has been an incredible partner for Nissan, it has been an honor to work along side him and learn so much about this sport.
“The motorsport paddocks of the world have lost a very dear friend. On behalf of Nissan, we offer our condolences to his wife, two sons, all of his amazing team in Le Mans and his many friends and colleagues around the world.”
Nissan global motorsport director
