Silly season: How is the 2020/21 Formula E grid shaping up?

Silly season is drawing to a close as teams sign off on their driver line-ups for the 2020/21 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, with testing in Valencia on the horizon at the end of this month. Here's a look at how things stand up and down the pit-lane ahead of the new campaign.

Audi retains the line-up that rounded out Season 6, with 2016/17 Formula E Champion Lucas di Grassi returning alongside Rene Rast, who stepped in from the marque's motorsport stable to compete in Berlin.

Di Grassi was one of only three full-time drivers to have finished every race in 2019/20 on the way to sixth in the championship. His race pace netted him the most progress, at just over six positions gained per race, of any driver.

Qualifying was a thorn in the side for Audi through Season 6, and limited the Brazilian to two visits to the rostrum. Rast arrived on the scene at Tempelhof and immediately impressed, securing 29 points and a maiden podium in Round 10 whilst displaying a no-fear, combative driving style.

Can the duo drive the four rings to the fore in Season 7?
