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.

However, Audi has announced that it will be ramping up its support of the team for Season 4 following the cessation of its World Endurance Championship programme.

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.

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 2, but for Season 3 its all-new ATEC-02 joined the series.

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

After being an outside contender for the title in Seasons 1 and 2, Sam Bird remained on board for Season 3 and was joined by Jose Maria Lopez, fresh from sealing yet another World Touring Car Championship title for Citroen.

For Season 2, DS Virgin was one of two teams to employ a twin-motor solution, which proved to be fast, but heavy and hard to handle, but for Season 3 it has joined the ranks of the single motor teams.

Although its relatively new brand, DS has been represented in the WRC, while Virgin has been involved in motorsport previously through sponsorship of the championship-winning Brawn F1 team and its eponymous team, which ran for two seasons in 2010 and 2011.
