New venues, new racetracks and new manufacturers: in addition to thrilling races, Season 6 of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship has a few new features on the race calendar and in the field of drivers. And fans of BMW i Andretti Motorsport can also look forward to a new face for 2019/2020. Maximilian Günther, a promising talented racer, completes the driver line-up. Günther started his career in Formula racing in the Formula BMW Talent Cup in 2011 – the BMW Motorsport junior development programme at that time – and finished in second place. He followed this up with numerous successful stages in single-seater racing and an exceptional rookie season in Formula E. Alongside Günther – as in Season 5 – Alexander Sims will represent the BMW i Andretti Motorsport team. In the final race of Season 5, the Brit achieved a pole position and a second place – he is eager to build on that in his second season.

In the first race of the season, the newly founded team got their first win at the opener in Ad Diriyah.
