The technical relationship with Schaeffler has been the driving force behind the development of the powertrain, which took Lucas di Grassi to within a couple of points of the Season 2 championship and finally the title in Season 3. In Season 4, the Brazilian narrowly missed out on his second championship title after he finished second to Jean-Eric Vergne. 

After the announcing the cessation of its World Endurance Championship programme in 2016, Audi stepped up its Formula E programme to become a full factory-backed works team in Season 4.

Di Grassi and team-mate Daniel Abt have been on board since the first season, with both drivers taking multiple podium finishes.

The Abt team has a long association with Audi, not just through motorsport but also through its Sportsline aftermarket tuning division.

Season 5 of the championship sees the introduction of the new Gen2 Audi e-tron FE05, with a total of four cars appearing on the grid after the German marque signed a partnership with British outfit Virgin Racing.

Andretti has taken more different drivers to the Formula E podium than any other team, but so far the top step has proved elusive.

Technical issues prevented the team from running its own powertrain in Season Two, but for Season Three its all-new ATEC-02 joined the series followed by the ATEC-03 for Season Four.

Andretti has secured a technical partnership with BMW, which will blossom into a full manufacturer programme in Season 5.
