Envision Racing has been competing in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship since the inaugural 2014/15 season and brought home the Teams' championship in Season 9.

Finishing its first season fifth overall in the standings, the team went on to wind up third in the 2015/16 season before working its way to fourth in 2016/17. Two more third-place finishes followed in both the 2017/18 and 2018/19 campaigns and in 2019/20, the team was there-or-thereabouts again with another fourth-placed finish in the Teams' running.

For three seasons, the team used a powertrain supplied by French car manufacturer DS Automobiles, which challenged both the Teams' and, in the case of Sam Bird, the Drivers' Championship titles in the fourth season. After the partnership between the manufacturer and Virgin came to an end, the team switched to a powertrain supplied by former champions Audi Sport, in the form of its Gen2 Audi e-tron FE05. For its latest campaign, the Envision squad keeps its Audi underpinnings as it once again goes up against the might of the manufacturers to challenge for the title.

A stalwart of the team since Season 1, Sam Bird moves to pastures new for Season 7, having competed in every single Formula E race with the British outfit. The team moved quickly to pin Nick Cassidy down as his replacement, with the 25-year-old entering the fray off the back of securing the Japanese 'Triple Crown' of Super GT, Formula 3 and Super Formula titles.

Envision Virgin Racing made use of Audi's all-new powertrain, designed and built in-house for its final Formula E campaign, to draw level with the manufacturer in the standings. Robin Frijns was a season-long pacesetter after podiums in Diriyah and Monaco but the Dutchman slipped to fourth in the Drivers' running at the last. Rookie Nick Cassidy consistently impressed and a storming second half of his season yielded two trips to the rostrum of his own, in Puebla and New York City.

The team rounded out the Gen2 era in the same spot as it had a season prior, with fifth in the table, but a larger share of the points – with 194 to its name, four better than its previous high in Season 3. Frijns failed to win this time around and leaves for pastures new after four years with the team but Nick Cassidy – impressive in his debut campaign – took to the top step for the very first time in New York City, following up with a podium in London. Frijns’ four podiums proved a strong haul, and the team will be looking to fill that hole and more with the signing of a Formula E champion in Sebastien Buemi to its ranks for Season 9.

The new GEN3 era saw Envision continue in the front pack and the title hunt, aided by a resurgent performance from Buemi and Cassidy's impressive podium and victory haul, with four trips to the top step, the British outfit claimed the Teams' title in the season finale in London.

Envision's Teams' title defence will be in the hands of Buemi and the returning Frijns, as the Dutchman is back into the fold for Season 10.
