Frijns has competed with the team for all ten rounds of season two, setting an impressive rookie record by finishing in the top ten in his first five races.

“Robin showed great consistency and talent during his time with us this last season,” Team Owner Michael Andretti said. “As dedicated as he is to our Formula E program, we are happy to continue the development of his careers.  We look forward to having him back for Season 3 and continuing to build on the competitive foundation we have set.”

Frijns is also excited to be continuing with the team next season.

“I’m a loyal person if I feel comfortable and happy where I am at”

“I stayed with the same karting team for 10 years. I enjoy all the people I work with at Andretti and I am comfortable with the team, so why change. With Season 3 coming, you never know where you’re team is going to be compared to other teams. I guess we’ll find out in qualifying at Hong Kong. But I think if you enjoy the people you work with that’s most important.”

“The goal is always to win races,” Frijns said. “Andretti has yet to win our first race in Formula E so I would like to see that happen. I want to be competitive and fighting for podiums every race.”
The team also unveiled a new livery in time for the London ePrix, and announced they will compete as MS Amlin Andretti next season after securing a new title sponsor. Frijns and Simona de Silvestro have been working hard with the team on developments for next season’s challenger.

The first race of the 2016/17 season will be held in Hong Kong on the 9th October.

The London ePrix double header takes place this weekend.
