2024 Formula E Starting Grid: The Top 5 Teams

Spread the love

It’s finally race week again for Formula E, with the 2023-2024 season set to go green this Saturday in Mexico City. But what has changed since the last race start in London last year? Teams with a different name, Team Principal or driver will all be on the grid, as well as others who have opted for no changes.

Only time will tell who made the wisest decision, but for now let’s focus on the top teams of the past season.

Envision Racing

The  winners of the 2022 Teams’championship will definitely try to secure a second title in a row. After a season at ABT Cupra, Robin Frijns has returned to the team he’s had the most experience with in the championship.

Four seasons, two wins and thirteen podiums are the common history between the team using Jaguar powertrains and the Dutch driver, whose first approach to the new Gen10 cars had been very hard, with only 6 points to his name last season.

In his defence, the unfortunate ABT driver at the time had broken his wrist in the inaugural 2022-2023 Mexico City round, thus missing the following six races. He will partner with the experienced Sebastien Buemi, set to start his second season with Envision after a year with two pole positions and a podium in London.

Jaguar TCS Racing

In the last season the illustrious team came, once again, pretty close to their first title in the series, ending the year only twelve points behind Envision. As constructors, the Jaguar powertrain appears to be a very solid concepts, monopolising the top steps of the first Gen10 podium, but it was not enough for the driver’s championship.

Mitch Evans was definitely the leader for Jaguar in 2023, with four race wins and ending third in the championship standings. The highlight of his season was definitely the Rome weekend, in both positive and negative ways.

After a perfect Saturday where he had maximised his points tally by taking pole position, fastest lap and race win, he crashed out into championship rival Nick Cassidy on Sunday. The same driver with whom he’ll partner for the upcoming season.

In spite of the crash, Cassidy went on to take P2 in the drivers’standings for Envision with his best season ever in Formula E, scoring four of his five race wins. These rivals turned teammates will definitely be a duo to keep an eye on for 2024!

Avalanche Andretti

The American team led by Micheal Andretti won its first title in the series last year. British driver and Red Bull Sim Driver Jake Dennis only took two race wins, compared to the Jaguar duo, but was the most consistent driver out of all the title contenders, with nine other podiums to his name.

Dennis had an incredible run in the second half of the 2023 season, eight times on the podium in the last nine races of the season, and the 2023 winner of the Mexico City E-Prix will definitely want to start the year on the same high note.

He will line up alongside former Nissan driver Norman Nato in 2024, with whom he shared a podium in Rome. Nato was the top scorer for his team in 2023, bringing home 63 points out of the 95 tallied up by Nissan, as well as a second place in the Italian round, and will take on his third full time season in the series.

TAG HEUER Porsche Formula E Team

The German team, who was the engine supplier for Andretti’s championship winning run, had had a very positive start of the season, with both drivers Pascal Wehrlein and Antonio Felix Da Costa consistently on the podium.

In fact, Wehrlein was championship leader for the first half of 2023, achieving a podium and two of his three seasonal race wins in the first three rounds of the year, drifting off to the lower part of the top ten in the second half of the season. The German driver ended his campaign in P4, but will be definitely out for blood this time round!

Championship winner of the 2019-2020 season, Da Costa will return with the German team for a second season in 2024, after winning in Cape Town and scoring two podiums.


The newborn team, originated by the union of DS Techeetah and Dragon Racing Penske, featuring the only driver lineup with two former Formula E Champions wasn’t as successful as expected by Team Principal Jay Penske.

The only repeated champion in the series, Jean-Eric Vergne, scored the team’s only race win of 2023 in Hyderabad. He also was twice on the podium, second in Cape Town, aside former teammate Antonio Felix Da Costa, and third in Berlin.

Reigning champion Stoffel Vandoorne had  a tougher time adapting to the new generation of cars, scoring his best result of the year in the final London round, P5.
