Formula E team Envision Virgin Racing is in testing sessions right now with its new purple, silver, and red color scheme. Envision Virgin Racing Managing Director Sylvain Filippi said: “We had an extremely successful launch event last week and now, following all the hard work over the summer, we’re ready to put our new Gen2 cars through their paces. As an independent team, we’re restricted on private testing, so we have a busy programme to complete but we’re confident the team and drivers can get up to speed quickly. Obviously, there is always a degree of caution with the results you get from testing as this circuit is not necessarily representative of the tracks Formula E normally competes on, but the data we gain will be very beneficial in the lead up to the opening race in Ad Diriyah.”

Chairman of the Board, Franz Jung, said: “Envision Group have a mission to solve the sustainability challenge for the future, this is a common goal shared with Formula E. We were very impressed by the commitment the team showed during the launch event at the team’s Silverstone base, we’re now excited to see the same at pre-season testing.”


Formula E racer since day one and an excellent driver to talk to is Sam Bird who had to say: “I’m excited to see how the Audi Sports technology compares to the other cars throughout the test. From the limited running we’ve already done, it feels like a strong package, so I can’t wait to be driving it. Season five is an exciting time for the sport, and with the absence of car changes, there is even more emphasis on the on-track performance.”

Robin Frijns further added: “It’s great to be back in Formula E with the Envision Virgin Racing team. We’ve worked hard as a team throughout the summer and now we’re ready to see what we can achieve. The car itself feels nice to drive and I’m looking forward to working through the various set-up and strategy programmes we have to ensure we’re in the best possible shape.”
