The two BMW iFE.18 cars will be fielded by BMW i Andretti Motorsport with team principal Roger Griffiths at the helm. Griffiths, and the Andretti Autosport team, owned by Michael Andretti, bring a wealth of Formula E experience with them. The American team has contested every race in the series since 2014. “I can’t wait to see BMW i Andretti Motorsport hit the race track in Season 5. I believe we have the right partners, drivers and personnel in place to compete at the very top level of Formula E,” said Andretti Autosport CEO Michael Andretti. “Everyone on both sides have been dedicated to the development of the new BMW iFE.18 and I look forward to seeing it in action. We are entering not only a new era of Formula E, but of motorsport as a whole.” António Félix da Costa has also been in action in Formula E since Season 1, and will be driving the #28 BMW iFE.18 in the forthcoming season. “I know Formula E really well and was always convinced that BMW would enter as a manufacturer one day. Now, to be part of this team is an incredible motivator,” said Félix da Costa. Alexander Sims in the #27 car will be competing alongside him. Sims, like Félix da Costa, has been demonstrating his exceptional versatility as a BMW works driver for many years, and has celebrated countless successes in BMW race cars. “Formula E has quickly become the place for top manufacturers and top drivers to meet. I am honoured to be entrusted with taking on this adventure in collaboration with BMW i Motorsport,” said Sims.
