With Mitch and James, we can look to build on the success of last season and push for more on-track success. We do not underestimate the task, we are up against the most competitive driver and team line up in the championship’s history but also in terms of current motorsport. As we head to Saudi Arabia, we are looking forward to the challenge and will be working hard to deliver a positive start to the season and to kick off our campaign well.”

“I am excited to head to Saudi Arabia and start our fourth season together. We’ve tasted success now and the plan is to keep pushing for more. We are really well prepared and we know it is going to be a big fight. Saudi Arabia is a challenging track, and it is a double header, so it is important we get off to a strong start to season six.”

“Heading to a track I’ve never visited in a race series completely new to me will be a big challenge, but one I’m really looking forward to. Testing has gone well but I can’t wait to get out on track and start racing in my first ever Formula E race. As one of the new drivers on the grid, I’m fully motivated And hope to surprise a few people in Saudi Arabia.”
