Robin Frijns returns to Envision Racing for the 2024 Formula E season.
Frijns spent four seasons racing for the team before switching to ABT for the 2023 season.
The two-time race winner now returns to the team alongside Season 2 champion Sebastien Buemi.
“I’m really excited about getting started again with Envision Racing after a year away from the team, it really does feel like coming home,” Frijns said.
“It will be great to be joining a championship winning team. Envision Racing have been fighting at the top pretty much every season and I can’t wait to get started.
“We have a great car and the aim is to be competitive, which I am sure we will be and I am driving to win the championship.”
Frijns has two Formula E victories, both coming in his first season with Envision in 2018-19, when he finished fourth in the championship standings.
The Dutchman has nine other podium finishes, eight of which came with Envision.
He was then replaced by Sebastien Buemi for the 2023 season and switched to ABT, a team he had raced with in DTM. It was a difficult season for Frijns, who broke his wrist in the opening race and had to miss the following four races.
However, Envision are optimistic about Frijns’ return to the team.
“It is great to have Robin back with the team after one year away,” said Envision managing director Sylvain Filippi. “He enjoyed some memorable moments with Envision Racing over the years and was always pushing at the front and regularly finishing on the podium.
“The combination of Robin and Sebastien Buemi will be a strong one, and we can’t wait to get started for Season 10.”
Envision Racing chairman Franz Jung added: “We obviously know all about the ability Robin possesses and are delighted he is returning to the team.
“Envision Racing have always been competitive at the front of the grid and now, as reigning teams’ championships, the challenge is to maintain those high standards. We believe Robin is up to the task and alongside Sebastien for Season 10 we expect them to be a very formidable duo.”
Frijns replaces former team-mate Nick Cassidy, who moves to Jaguar Racing for the 2024 season.
