Envision Virgin Racing has taken the wraps off an updated livery for its 2019-20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship challenger, officially revealing its program on Friday.
The Anglo-Chinese team will remain an Audi customer, using the new Audi e-tron FE06, while keeping an unchanged driver pairing of Sam Bird and Robin Frijns, as reported by e-racing365 in June.
Envision Virgin finished third in last season’s teams’ standings with three victories between its two drivers, and good enough results to put Frijns fourth in the drivers’ standings.
“Formula E has become the most competitive championship in the world and with new manufacturers joining – alongside those we were competing against in Season Five – having consistency is key for the team,” said the team’s managing director Sylvain Filippi.
“Retaining our strong driver lineup has allowed us to focus all our efforts on the upcoming season and to really utilise our knowledge and experience.
“Having concluded an extremely successful first full season with Envision Group, we’re now looking ahead to the upcoming seasons where we can develop our team experience, both as a team and with our partners.”
Added Frijns: “It’s great to be continuing with the team for a second season of Formula E. Season Five was a real learning curve, as it was for all drivers with the introduction of the Gen 2 car, so I’m excited to see what this new season has to offer.
“We ended last season on a high – with my season finale win in New York City – and we want to continue this momentum.
“We’ve worked hard over the summer period and are now looking forward to pre-season testing in Valencia.”
