17 September, 2019 – Versailles, France

DS TECHEETAH are very proud to announce that Antonio Felix Da Costa will join the team on 1 October 2019.

The 28-year-old Portuguese driver will take his long-term #13 for Season Six of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship that will commence on 22 November 2019 in Riyadh.

Antonio has raced in the championship since its inception, having contested 54 races where he achieved pole positions, podiums and two race wins (Buenos Aires and Riyadh). In Season Five, 2018/2019, Antonio finished 6th overall.

Mark Preston, DS TECHEETAH Team Principal:

“It’s fantastic to have Antonio with the team. He’s a good friend to all of us and we’re all looking forward to welcoming him and to see him in the gold and black DS TECHEETAH colours. He will be a great, and fast, addition to the team and we’re all very excited to see what Jean-Eric and Antonio will deliver on track this coming year.”

Xavier Mestelan Pinon, DS Performance Director:

“I am particularly proud to welcome Antonio in our team. His experience in this discipline and his speed will be crucial in our pursuit of victories and titles. While awaiting the first race in Riyadh, he will be able to commence several test sessions together with Jean-Éric and help us to improve our DS E-TENSE FE20.”

Antonio Felix Da Costa, DS TECHEETAH Driver:

“Getting the opportunity to join a double championship winning team in such a highly competitive motorsport category like Formula E it’s very rare. It was a very hard decision to leave my current position but it’s an opportunity I just couldn’t say no to and I’m very excited to join Jean-Éric and everyone at DS TECHEETAH.”

Jean-Éric Vergne, DS TECHEETAH Driver:

“I’d like to extend a very warm welcome to Antonio. We’ve been friends for a long time, and we’ve been part of the same motorsport program in the past so it’s great to be able to work together again. He will be a great addition to the team.”




Los Angeles, September 18th, 2019 – GEOX DRAGON confirms Nico Müller ahead of ABB FIA Formula E Season 6


GEOX DRAGON is pleased to announce the signing of Nico Müller, to drive the #7 Penske EV-4 in the sixth season of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.


This season will be Nico’s first competition in a single-seater series since he scored two wins in his 2013 Formula Renault 3.5 campaign. Nico has spent the past six years climbing to the top of the DTM, and currently is second in the 2019 Drivers’ Championship.


Müller got his first taste of Formula E with two seasons as a Test and Reserve Driver. During this time, he demonstrated blistering pace, leading the Rookie Test at the Circuit Moulay El Hassan in Marrakech in Season 4 by nearly a second, while simultaneously setting the circuit record. In Season 5, Nico repeated the feat.


Since coming on board, the Swiss driver has quickly integrated into the Team’s development program, working on the track and at the squad’s new Silverstone facility to continue refining the Season 6 package.


Upon his joining the American Team, Nico said that “I have already met and started working with most of the Team. They are an extremely motivated group of racers. They have proven their ability to win races and challenge for podiums in Formula E. They have done it before, and we aim to do it in Season 6.”


Müller added that “we have a big challenge ahead of us. We are an independent manufacturer, and the level of competition in Formula E is the highest in Motorsport, but I have a lot of confidence in the Team. We have a compact structure, and everyone has a full grasp on the project, so together we will be able to move quickly and optimize the PENSKE AUTOSPORT package.”


On his rookie campaign, Nico commented that “I love street racing, and I am looking forward to lining up against the best guys out there. Formula E is particularly challenging, especially for a rookie, but I think we have an extremely exciting year ahead of us. We are looking forward to competing with these major OEMs, and I am pumped to be able to put pressure on the big teams right from the start in Riyadh.”


Jay Penske, Owner of GEOX DRAGON and PENSKE AUTOSPORT, welcomed Nico to the Team, saying that “I am very excited to have Nico behind the wheel of the #7 Penske EV-4 this season. Nico is a fierce competitor, and with him, we have the pieces in place to compete with the major OEM’s in this landmark Formula E season. I look forward to very solid results in the upcoming season.”

JAKARTA, INDONESIA (September 20, 2019) – Formula E is set to race in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta for the first time this coming season, adding to the long list of iconic cities featured on the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship calendar.

“The calendar for this coming season of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship was already shaping up to be something special, but to add another race in Asia and Indonesia in particular is incredibly exciting. Indonesia has an affinity with motorsport – hosting races and events in the past and developing drivers who’ve progressed up the ladder – as well as having an extremely engaged and growing fan base. On top of that, it’s also an emerging market for electric vehicles, with increased investment already being made to push production and clean up the air around the cities. Formula E wants to play a part in that positive change and with the most competitive grid of manufacturers in motorsport, I can’t wait to go green in Jakarta on June 6 next year. Thank you to both Ikatan Motor Indonesia and the city of Jakarta for making it happen and collectively supporting the wider electric movement.”

Reigle will oversee the overall management of the company, day-to-day operations and the delivery of ambitious plans for growth on a global scale.
The dynamic pairing will partner together to ensure a smooth and seamless transition and continue to work in close collaboration to help Formula E reach its full potential over the coming seasons.

Record audience figures and revenue as Formula E remains sport of choice for young fans
– ABB FIA Formula E Championship racing ahead with revenues exceeding €200m and increasing more than 50 per cent on last season
– Cumulative TV audience of over 411m – rising 24 per cent year-on-year – and surpassing 400,000 spectators through the turnstiles
– Exciting races and EV tech continuing to capture a young demographic with 72 per cent of Formula E fans on social media aged under 35
– Formula E inspiring future generations to embrace clean energy and in turn bringing fans one step closer to driving an electric car
For immediate release – FE380
LONDON, UK (September 12, 2019) – The ABB FIA Formula E Championship has further accelerated its audience growth across the board in season five and still remains the sport of choice for young fans, with 72 per cent of followers on social channels under the age of 35.
Consumer growth figures at the end of the season also reflect a similar upward trajectory of the company’s financials. The preliminary numbers show a record revenue of over €200 million (EUR), up more than 50 per cent from last season and a positive EBITDA for the first time in the short history of Formula E.
Not only has Formula E seen a significant increase in revenue, the series has also experienced yet another consecutive year of growth across its digital platforms, as well as increased event attendance and more fans tuning in to watch on television.
Formula E entered a new era in season five, introducing the game-changing Gen2 car, rolling out an innovative race format and adding to the list of iconic cities featuring on the calendar, which in turn created a truly unique and unmissable sporting spectacle.
Coming off the back of the most competitive and unpredictable season so far, which saw eight different winners in the first eight races, the excitement on track has translated into growth across all areas and has again gained most traction with a younger audience.
Following a trend set in previous seasons and showing no signs of slowing, Formula E is continuing to capture a new and young audience, with a rising amount of followers, video views and sustained levels of engagement spread over the most desirable age brackets.
The combined total of followers has climbed 212 per cent compared to last season, more than doubling the number of new fans following the ABB FIA Formula E Championship on social media. Despite drawing a larger following, engagement rates haven’t relented and instead have continued to rise with a 449 per cent increase in interaction on Formula E owned content.
Formula E has focussed its efforts on servicing fans with the latest news, storylines and relevant content to help create conversation, stir debate and generate comments from fans. The series is also committed to producing original content in key markets, with multi-language community management attributing to additional levels of engagement.
The number of video views has grown for a second season in succession, coming in at 61 per cent more than last year and passing the 850 million mark. With 72 per cent of followers aged under 35 and 42 per cent of videos being viewed by fans under the age of 25, Formula E is among the highest-performing sports platforms on the planet in terms of percentage breakdown of young fans.
Targeting and tailoring content to a young audience ties in with Formula E’s broader brand purpose and vision of moving towards a cleaner future, faster – reaching more fans and bringing them one step closer to buying an electric car.
On top of driving digital growth, Formula E has had more event attendees than ever before, surpassing more than 400,000 spectators and ticket holders coming through the turnstiles in season five. Along with increased footfall in cities around the world, the number of fans watching on television has risen 24 per cent year-on-year, with a cumulative TV audience of 411m across 13 races.
After the most successful season to date, the ABB FIA Formula E Championship is already gearing up for the new campaign with the most competitive line-up in motorsport. Both Mercedes-Benz and Porsche join the grid and will be battling for bragging rights when the five lights go out for the SAUDIA Diriyah E-Prix double-header on November 22 & 23.

Founder & CEO of Formula E
Alejandro Agag
“It’s incredibly positive to again see a significant increase in our growing audience across the board, as well as the number of young fans choosing to watch and follow the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. Like the next generation cars themselves, the speed of growth is getting faster and faster. The progress we’ve made in such a short space of time is very pleasing and is also reflected in record revenues, which exceed over €200 million for the first time. After strategically re-investing in other areas of the business over the first five-year cycle and continuing to do so for the foreseeable future, the rising level of revenue is a testament to the health of our company for many more years to come. Reaching new young fans, the excitement of Formula E is helping to inspire future generations to embrace clean energy and in turn bringing them one step closer to buying an electric car. This ties in with Formula E’s vision of moving towards a cleaner future, faster.”
