The ABB FIA Formula E 2018/2019 season has also tinkered with the structures of the teams participating in the championship.
Starting with the Venturi team, by Brazilian Felipe Massa. The team has yet to win in Formula E, but has made important changes in its staff with the arrival of new investors, the hiring of new engineers and the technical supervision of Susie Wolff, a former driver and also the wife of Mercedes director Toto Wolff. A change that can really change the level of the team.
But the most significant change occurred with the Renault e-Dams, Techeetah and Virgin.
Renault will leave the category and will be replaced by the other company of the group, Nissan and has not announced so far if it will have any client team.
With this, Techeetah has changed the supplier of its Power Train. It will now use the one provided by DS, Virgin’s former partner in three seasons. This partnership between Techeetah and DS was announced shortly after season 4 ends in New York. According to team director Ivan Yim, this partnership will leave the team on a new level and much stronger.
In order not to be on foot, Virgin is negotiating a partnership with Audi to become a client team for the current Formula E champions. If you can not get a deal with the Germans, Mahindra is an option.
It is estimated that one team sells its Power Train to the other for the value of 820 thousand euros per car, equivalent to just over 3.5 million reals.
