Audi Sport ABT Formula E Team (DEU)
China Racing Formula E Team (CHN)

E.dams Formula E Team (FRA)
Mahindra Racing Formula E Team (IND)
Super Aguri Formula E Team (JAP)
Venturi Grand Prix Formula E Team (MCO)
Virgin Racing Formula E Team (GBR)
Somewhat just as important as the drivers, the TV team has been announced, including Robert Llewellyn (aka Kryten from Red Dwarf) presenter of Scrapheap Challenge and more recently a real advocate of all things that tie electricity and motoring together. Jack Nicholls, best known as the commentator for the Blancpain GT series alongside John Watson, Dario Franchitti, who doesn’t really need any introduction, and Nicki Shields, who I know nothing about, but apparently she’s a TV presenter and into sciency things, so that’s good.
@bradley13 Definitely a contender for me (always liked Alguersuari and was impressed by Bird in GP2 last year) but I’m going to wait and see who the other teams are going to choose before settling on Virgin Racing :-)
I have to say, the more I see on this the more excited I get. Definitely planning a trip to London for the final round, providing the FIA don’t go and ridiculously limit access and make tickets as expensive as they usually are.
@geemac, that was well over four years ago. Di Grassi is now a driver in WEC with none other than Audi, whom have a long standing partnership with Abt Motorsport in DTM and now FE as it seems they’re entered under the name ‘Audi Sport Abt’.
