Pre-season testing for the 2024 Formula E season is just around the corner and there has been plenty of movement in the driver market since the 2023 finale in London.
All of the field have been confirmed ahead of pre-season testing in Valencia, which takes place from October 23 to 27 at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo.
Nine driver changes have been made,, so find out where your favourite Formula E driver will be racing in the new season.
Envision: Sebastien Buemi and Robin Frijns
We start with the 2023 Formula E teams’ champions, Envision. Sebastien Buemi retains his seat despite finishing 94 points behind now former teammate Nick Cassidy last season.
Robin Frijns returns to Envision after a year at Abt Cupra, where he will hope to get back on form after a campaign at the back of the field.
Andretti: Jake Dennis and Norman Nato
World champion Jake Dennis signed a multi-year contract at Andretti in 2022, so will look to emulate Jean Eric-Vergne by winning back-to-back Formula E titles.
Andre Lotterer had a torrid 2023 campaign, ending up 18th in the standings, and will focus on the World Endurance Championship with Porsche.
In comes Norman Nato from Nissan after a fine end to last season. Talk of Felipe Drugovich joining the team dwindled throughout August.
Jaguar: Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy
Is this the strongest Formula E driver pairing ever? Perhaps. Mitch Evans and Nick Cassidy have been good friends since their childhood and are now teammates at Jaguar.
Cassidy takes over Sam Bird‘s seat after leaving Envision over the break. Both drivers are signed up for 2025 too and the big question is how will their relationship fare if things get close in the title race.
Porsche: Pascal Wehrlein and Antonio Felix da Costa
Porsche are one of just three teams to retain the same driver line-up with Pascal Wehrlein and Antonio Felix da Costa.
Both drivers won a race in 2023 and it looked like Porsche were going to romp their way to the teams’ title early in the season. However, they faded away and Da Costa in particular will be a driver to keep an eye on with a season under his belt at Porsche.
DS Penske: Jean-Eric Vergne and Stoffel Vandoorne
After so much hope during pre-season testing ahead of last season, it was an underwhelming campaign for DS Penske.
Stoffel Vandoorne didn’t even feature on the podium as he failed to defend his Formula E title, while Jean-Eric Vergne often maximised results and ended up fifth in the standings. Both former champions will stay at DS Penske.
Maserati: Maximilian Gunther and Jehan Daruvala
Arguably the biggest surprise in the driver market was Jehan Daruvala to Maserati to replace Edoardo Mortara, who left the team over the summer.
Felipe Drugovich was expected to take vacated seat as he appears set to miss out on a place in Formula 1, but Daruvala was given the nod.
Maximilian Gunther, who is Formula E‘s youngest race winner, stays with Maserati for another campaign.
Nissan: Sascha Fenestraz and Oliver Rowland
Sascha Fenestraz keeps his Nissan seat but Nato‘s late surge wasn’t enough for him to stay, although you could argue he’s now with a more competitive team in Andretti.
Oliver Rowland is back after leaving Mahinda mid-season following the 2023 Monaco E-Prix. Rowland spent three seasons with Nissan before his 18-month stint at Mahindra.
McLaren: Jake Hughes and Sam Bird
It’s an all-British line-up at McLaren as Jake Hughes extended his contract with the Woking-based team after a solid rookie campaign and Sam Bird replaces Rene Rast.
Rast is set to be left without a seat on the Formula E grid, while Bird will hope to rejuvenate his career after a disappointing end to his time at Jaguar.
Nio: Dan Ticktum and Sergio Sette Camara
Nio will have an unchanged line-up, with both Dan Ticktum or Sergio Sette Camara confirmed as the team’s drivers for 2024.
“It’s a pleasure to be working with Dan and Sérgio again for Season 10,” said deputy team principal Russell O’Hagan. “Their talents and commitment to the team are critical factors in our continued progress.”
Mahindra: Nyck de Vries and Edoardo Mortara
The biggest surprise from Formula E‘s silly season is Mahindra announcing a new line-up of Nyck de Vries and Edoardo Mortara.
Lucas di Grassi left Mahindra after a disappointing season and is expected to join Abt Cupra, leaving both seats at the Indian outfit up for grabs.
De Vries is back in Formula E after a difficult six months in F1 for AlphaTauri, while Mortara joins from Maserati.
Abt Cupra: Lucas di Grassi and Nico Muller
Di Grassi has a history with the Abt team during their era in Formula E with factory support from Audi and has made a return to the team.
Nico Muller keep his place at Abt Cupra, which rounds off the 2024 Formula E grid.
