Andretti signs Frijns for season three

Wickens suffers horror crash in IndyCar Series

The Andretti Formula E team have secured the services of driver Robin Frijns for the next season of the championship.

The Dutchman has been with the team since the start of season two and is currently sitting in tenth place in the Drivers’ Championship, two points behind Nick Heidfeld.

“I’m a loyal person if I feel comfortable and happy where I am at,” the 24-year-old told Electrica Autosport. 

“I stayed with the same karting team for ten years. I enjoy all the people I work with at Andretti and I am comfortable with the team, so why change.

“With Season 3 coming, you never know where you’re team is going to be compared to other teams. I guess we’ll find out in qualifying at Hong Kong. But I think if you enjoy the people you work with that’s most important.”

Meanwhile, team owner Michael Andretti is happy to have re-signed Frijns and heaped praise on his consistent driving. Frijns is one of the few drivers this season who have finished every race.

“Robin showed great consistency and talent during his time with us this last season,” said Andretti.

“As dedicated as he is to our Formula E program, we are happy to continue the development of his careers. We look forward to having him back for Season 3 and continuing to build on the competitive foundation we have set.”
