DS TECHEETAH Formule E Team – Formule E
Jean-Éric Vergne is Formula E’s sole two-time champion (2017-2018 season and 2018-2019 season).
After spending several years in Formula 1 (58 Grand Prix starts), the Frenchman took part in his first E-Prix at Punta Del Este (Uruguay) in December 2014. He will go down in history as the first driver to secure pole position on his debut in the series. After initially racing for DS Performance, he joined the TECHEETAH team at the start of the 2016-2017 season, which became DS TECHEETAH from the 2018-2019 campaign.
In 2019-2020, although he made a telling contribution to DS TECHEETAH winning the teams’ championship, he was unable to claim a hat-trick of drivers’ titles, losing out to his team-mate Antonio Felix Da Costa. His 2020-2021 season was equally difficult, which is why he is determined to bounce back heading into the 2021-2022 season.
