Ending the season on a high, Frijns won the at finale in New York City and rounded out the season with a fourth-place finish. The Dutchman remains with the team for a second season and is looking to win again in season six.

SAM BIRD

Briton Sam Bird has enjoyed a highly successful career spanning a variety of championships since his karting debut back in 2002. He joined Formula E, and the team, for the inaugural Formula E race in Beijing in 2014 and has competed in every race to date. Bird has proved that he is one of the most competitive out on the track and is one of just two drivers to have recorded victories in every Formula E season. Sam welcomes the return of his home race - the season finale in London - and will be looking to finish on a high, having won in London in a previous season.
