AoB Special Stage should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
2016-2017 Formula E Season

Might as well get this started early. Leave the DS Virgin/Dragon appeal news on the old thread, please.

1-Hong Kong ePrix- 9 October 2016
2-Marrakesh ePrix-12 November 2016
3-Buenos Aires ePrix-18 February 2017
4-Mexico City ePrix-1 April 2017
5-TBD-22 April 2017
6-Monaco ePrix-13 May 2017
7-Paris ePrix-20 May 2017
8-Berlin ePrix-10 June 2017
9-TBD-24 June 2017
10-Brussels ePrix-1 July 2017
11-Montreal ePrix Race 1-15 July 2017
12-Montreal ePrix Race 2-16 July 2017
13-New York ePrix Race 1-29 July 2017
14-New York ePrix Race 2-30 July 2017


New races galore, new drivers may be at less of a disadvantage than would be expected. Note the later start and end to the season. Rumor mill suggests Singapore and a new London venue to fill the gaps, but time will tell.

Renault e.Dams-Renault Z.E 16- Sťbastien Buemi (SUI)/Nico Prost (FRA)

ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport-ABT Schaeffler FE02- Daniel Abt (GER)/Lucas di Grassi (BRA)

DS Virgin Racing-Virgin DSV-02- Sam Bird (GBR)/JM Lůpez (ARG)

Faraday Future Dragon Racing-Penske 701-EV- LoÔc Duval (FRA)/JťrŰme d'Ambrosio (BEL)

Mahindra Racing Formula E Team-Mahindra M3ELECTRO- TBA/TBA

Venturi Formula E Team-Venturi VM200-FE-02- Stephane Sarrazin (FRA)/TBA

MS Amlin Andretti- Andretti ATEC-02- Robin Frijns (NED)/TBA

Techeetah-Renault Z.E 16 (likely to badged as Nissan)- Jean-…ric Vergne (FRA)/Ma Qing Hua (CHN)

NextEV NIO- NEXTEV TCR Formula 002- Nelson Piquet, Jr. (BRA)/TBA

Jaguar Formula E Team Spark-Jaguar- Jaguar I-Type 1- TBA/TBA

Of course there are several unconfirmed drivers from the past season, plus we have Rene Rast's possible entry. Team Aguri bought out, Andretti gets even more advertising, TCR fully bought out, Faraday Future partnered with Dragon to build a Penske branded unit, AFdC out, JEV to replace, JM Lopez joins DS. Bloody 'ell.

This series changes at warp speed. Let the complete relearning of the teams and drivers begin so we'll be ready in October.

Felix da Costa is likely for Andretti.

I've heard mixed things whether Piquet is actually confirmed at NextEV. I wouldn't be shocked if he ended up at Jaguar, perhaps alongside Davidson or Lynn.

Magnetti Marelli (read FCA) to supply Andretti, Dragon (read Penske), and Mahindra. Latter two expected to be based on the same base unit (a la the McLaren/Venturi/Mahindra unit in S2), while the Andretti is believed to be a different design to the other two.

Interesting. Fiat doesn't have hybrids.

I know, it's strange that the union of the world's two most electrification-phobic brands owns a company most commonly associated with high-quality motor design. I guess we can't have Chryslers that don't break down after a week, now can we?

Although this does make for a fun game of 'spot a rival manufacturer's logo on racecars' [start with IndyCar for this one].

BMW has partnered with 'an existing team',believed to be Andretti, ahead of full entry. AFdC suspected to join the American squad.

Honda WTCC factory driver Tiago Monteiro has tested a half season 3 Mahindra at Calafat. The test car was running the last season powertrain (which doesn't count against testing days) but was running an extremely revised front wing assembly which is believed to be part of the updated season 3 aero package. Monteiro has confirmed his commitment to the tin-tops but awaits Honda's decision on extending the WTCC program. It is also possible Monteiro could be part of a future M-TEC Honda entry in the future.

Dragon has poached Abt technical director Jacky Eeckelaert, who has prior experience with a number of F1 teams.

Would be nice to see him in Formula E with M-Tec Honda, but I think that's very unlikely at his point.

And it would be very bad for WTCC to loose another driver after Lůpez moves on to Formula E.

Nice, looks like a gamepad.

Also, the new front wing looks like Speed Racer stuff.
