The Mercedes Formula E team has confirmed the squad for the next season, which starts on January 16 in Santiago, Chile. The German team will continue to collaborate with Stoffel Vandorn and Nick de Vries.
Ian James, Head of Mercedes EQ: “We were very pleased with the performances of Stoffel and Nick last season. They both showed great results, gained valuable team experience and demonstrated that they have everything they need to participate in Formula E. They are not only incredibly fast, but also know how to control the battery consumption, which is so important in Formula E. apply all the experience gained in the seventh season. “
Stoffel Vandorn: “I’m looking forward to getting back on track. It feels like a long time has passed since the last race in Berlin. Since then, we have participated in the tests – it was great to get back behind the wheel, but nothing beats the fight on the track.
I am very interested in what results we will achieve in the upcoming season with a new car. We managed to end the last season with a victory, and I hope that in the new year we will continue to fight for podiums and victories, closing the gap with the leaders. Let’s see how everything goes. “
Nick de Vriz: “I am very pleased to continue working with the team in the coming season. We had a big debut season, although Covid-19 has made it a weird year. Fortunately, we managed to finish the championship with positive results, and now I look forward to a more familiar schedule in 2021.
In addition, I hope that I can get to know all the new tracks that we could not get to in 2020. I am comfortable with the team and I look forward to seeing more success in the new season. ”
