Eriksson and Aron step in at Envision for Berlin weekend

Envision Racing have announced a changed line-up for the Berlin race weekend and Rounds 9 & 10 on 11 & 12 May, with Joel Eriksson and Paul Aron stepping in.


A calendar clash with the FIA World Endurance Championship rules Sebastien Buemi and Robin Frijns out of Round 9, with FIA regulations preventing them competing in Round 10 on the Sunday - with the two races being considered part of the same event. Both Buemi and Frijns will be on-site in support of the team, though.

“This is a very unusual situation for us as a team, and we are obviously frustrated that the calendar clash could not be resolved by the FIA and FEO” said Sylvain Filippi, Managing Director and CTO at Envision Racing. “However, we have to make the best of the situation, and I believe with both Joel and Paul we have two very exciting and competitive drivers.”

MEET THE GRID: Who are the drivers on Formula E's grid of 22 for Season 10?

Eriksson, 25, is the current Jaguar TCS Racing Test, Simulator and Reserve Driver, has been kindly released by Jaguar and will race for the team during the Berlin weekend. The Swede, who tested with Envision back in 2018, has already competed in eight Formula E races to date - and is very familiar with both the GEN3 and the Jaguar powertrain.

Aron, 20, is considered one of the most exciting young prospects in single-seater racing and sits second in the current Formula 2 standings for the season. The Estonian driver has already amassed three podium finishes in his first full FIA Formula 2 campaign this year, rapidly marking himself out as one to watch for the future.

Aron will embark on an intensive simulator programme with the team to get him as best prepared as possible for Berlin. The team has also decided to give Aron the opportunity to drive in Rookie Free Practice in Misano this week, meaning Jack Aitken will not participate in the session. The team extends its thanks to Jack for his understanding.

“It’s a great opportunity to race for Envision Racing in Berlin. I’m very much looking forward to experiencing Formula E for the first time and working with the team,” says Aron. “We’ll be working hard up until the race to prepare for the event, starting with the rookie session this week in Misano.”

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for me to be racing in Formula E again, this time with Envision Racing," adds Eriksson. “After taking part in my first ever Formula E test with Envision, it’s great to be racing for them in Berlin, and we’ll be working hard together to have a successful weekend.”
