MS&AD ANDRETTI FORMULA E.

Side by side with BMW.

Andretti. This family has shaped racing for generations, not only in North America, but internationally as well. Now Michael Andretti is stepping up to continue this success story in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship – together with BMW. BMW Motorsport has been working in close collaboration with Andretti Formula E since 2016. In the previous ten years, BMW i has worked hard to achieve a leading position in the automobile industry when it comes to electromobility. As a result of the partnership with Andretti in Formula E, there is also an intense exchange between racing and production development within the company, which benefits both sides. This cooperation is becoming more intense step by step and covers the collaboration at engineer level and the reciprocal use of resources. The BMW Motorsport engineers’ main priority is to familiarise themselves with procedures and processes, and to consolidate their knowledge of Formula E.
