With the 2019/20 ABB FIA Formula E Championship at an end, following the nine-day six-race finale at Berlin's Tempelhof Airport Circuit, we're taking a look back at the campaign in pictures. Next up: Panasonic Jaguar Racing, TAG Heuer Porsche and Mahindra Racing.
Jaguar's 2019/20 season was one of two halves. Heading into Berlin, Mitch Evans found himself just 11 points back from standings leader Antonio Felix da Costa (DS Techeetah) and a real contender after making the podium in Chile and winning in Mexico.
The downturn in Berlin was inexplicable, with the Kiwi managing a best of just seventh on the way to seventh spot in the Drivers' standings.
Team-mate James Calado's rookie year was a tough one; seventh in Saudi Arabia the Brit's best finish. Technical issues with the car beyond his control hampered his progress in Berlin prior to his replacement by Tom Blomqvist for the final two rounds.
Sam Bird will join Evans for 2021, with the team back to the drawing board over the off-season in a bid to rediscover its early Season 6 pace and promise.
The Stuttgart manufacturer was a new entrant for Season 6, with Andre Lotterer making the move from reigning champion outfit DS Techeetah to pair up with Formula E rookie Neel Jani.
Lotterer notched an impressive second on debut, and added another podium in the Berlin opener on the way to eighth in the table, whilst his late-season showing saw him among the top scorers at Tempelhof.
Jani wound up 20th, with a best of sixth in Round 10 and scored just a point for every nine his team-mate tallied. His performances were ultimately not enough to ensure a seat with the outfit in 2021, with Pascal Wehrlein stepping into the Swiss' shoes to line up alongside Lotterer.
With a promising start to life in Formula E, Porsche will now have their sights set on closing the deficit to fellow rookies Mercedes-Benz EQ, who flew to third in the Teams' Championship and rounded out 2019/20 as best of the German giants.
Jerome D'Ambrosio closed out a two-year stint at Mahindra with 16th in the standings. Four top ten finishes over the season saw him edge former team-mate Pascal Wehrlein's Berlin replacement Alex Lynn by just a point in the end, having completed five more rounds than the Brit.
Lynn's exploits at Tempelhof were impressive. Three Super Pole appearances saw the stand-in immediately on the one lap pace, and he was able to double down with good points hauls in the final three rounds on the way to 17th in the Drivers' table.
Mahindra contended with a factory move and had to revert to the previous iteration of its powertrain after early-season issues. For 2021, Dilbagh Gill will be hoping his team can now push on, with Alexander Sims already signed up for Season 7. Will Lynn follow full-time?
