22 cars will line up for fifth season of all-electric competition

The FIA has today, 16 November, confirmed the full-season entry list for the 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship.

This year’s expanded 11-team entry list will see 22 of the world’s top driving talents take to the grid, with the first round kicking off in Ad Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, on 15 December.

All four former champions return to test their mettle in the new FIA Formula E Gen2 car, with Jean-Eric Vergne hoping to become the first back-to-back champion in the history of the series with the DS TECHEETAH team.

Six fresh faces will be facing their first Formula E race in just a month’s time – Stoffel Vandoorne and Gary Paffett for HWA RACELAB, Max Gunther for GEOX DRAGON, Felipe Massa for the VENTURI Formula E Team, Alexander Albon for Nissan e.dams and Alexander Sims for BMW i Andretti Motorsport.

Several other top talents are returning to the championship for the upcoming campaign having raced in Formula E before but not contested the full fourth season – these include Robin Frijns for Envision Virgin Racing and Tom Dillmann for the NIO Formula E Team.

With a new car, new racing format and plenty of fresh faces, the fifth season of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship is set to be the most exciting and unpredictable to date.
