Formula e – Robin Frijns: “A different challenge”

During the first part of his career in car, Robin Frijns dominated every category he went through. Formula BMW, Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0, Formula Renault 3.5, with three titles in three seasons, the Dutchman's future seemed to be heading straight towards the F1.

After two seasons as a test pilot at Sauber then Caterham, before this last formation encountered the difficulties which led to the end of its activities, it was towards GT and the Blancpain championships that the native of Maastricht directed his career. A resident of Team WRT, he currently dominates the Sprint rankings before this weekend's Portuguese meeting in Portugal, and could win the title again at his first attempt.

Before that, the former Fortec driver in FR 3.5 was able to slip into the seat of a Formula e during the 2015-2016 pre-season tests at Donington in England, on behalf of the team Andretti Autosport. A new challenge and a return to single-seaters for Frijns.

“It's a little slower than other series I've driven in, but it's a fun car to drive. There's all this technology with you and lots of things to do with the wheel. Battery management and regeneration is a completely different challenge. » he indicates on the official website of the discipline.

Robin Frijns hopes to obtain the second seat of the American team alongside the Swiss Simona de Silvestro. Andretti Autosport has also decided to return to the first season package for the upcoming Formula e campaign.
