HWA RACELAB is the 11th team to join the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, making its debut in the fully-electric series in the 2018/19 season.
Despite making its debut in Formula E, HWA AG is no stranger to the upper echelons of motorsport. The team is renowned as the most successful outfit in the history of the DTM series with 10 drivers' titles and 180 race wins since 1988.
Ahead of its first season in Formula E, HWA Racelab unveiled its Gen2 car - supplied by Venturi Automobiles - and team structure at its new Affalterbach headquarters in Germany. Heading up the team is HWA AG CEO Ulrich Fritz, who comes to the series after four years as DTM team principal. Behind the wheel of the team's two Gen2 cars is 2018 DTM Championship winner Gary Paffett and former McLaren Formula One driver Stoffel Vandoorne.
