When the ABB FIA Formula E Championship starts its new season in Riyadh on December 15, there will be four drivers on the grid with Audi technology: alongside its own factory team, Audi Sport will also be equipping the British race team Virgin Racing with its newly developed Audi e-tron FE05, including the powertrain.
“We are glad that in the new Formula E season together with Virgin Racing four Audi e-tron FE05 cars will fight for points and trophies,” says Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass. “The team has been one of the key players in Formula E ever since the series was founded. Both in terms of its racing performances and all off-track activities. This makes Virgin Racing’s choice of using our powertrain a particular pleasure. This confidence also confirms the excellent work that our engineers are doing together with their colleagues from our development partner Schaeffler.”
