Our Drivers

ROBIN FRIJNS

Robin Frijns won titles in almost every series he competed in prior to entering Formula E. He cemented his racing credentials in Formula E by gaining a podium in just his second race, Putrajaya, continuing to gain accolades throughout season one and two. Continuing to impress outside of Formula E for the last couple of seasons, he returns to the sport with Envision Virgin Racing in Season 5, and is ready to take on the challenge of the all-electric Gen2 car.

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, going on to compete in every race to date since. Bird has proved that he is one of the most competitive out on the track and one of just two drivers to have recorded victories in every Formula E season.
