Tuesday, December 03, 2019

As the 2019/20 season began in Saudi Arabia, Schaeffler and Audi announced their agreement to remain Formula E technology partners.

Schaeffler and Audi have enjoyed phenomenal success since the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team made its debut in the inaugural 2014/15 series, notching up 12 wins, 40 podium places and more than 1,000 points, culminating in both Driver and Teams’ championship triumphs in 2016/17 and 2017/18 respectively.

Initially a partner to the ABT Sportsline team, Audi became a factory team in 2017, and Schaeffler began developing the drivetrain that would form the basis of a championship charge. The new agreement means Schaeffler continues its role as a technology and development partner, focusing primarily on the transmission, engine and drive concept development. It will also provide support in test rig-based work and prototype construction, as well as bearing enhancement and production.

Schaeffler CEO Automotive OEM, Matthias Zink, commented, “Schaeffler, Audi and Formula E have proved to be a perfect combination right from the very start. As a company, our intention is to use our drivetrain and chassis technologies to shape sustainable mobility and Formula E is an ideal platform on which to present these ideas.”

Audi Head of Motorsport, Dieter Gass, enthused, “I am delighted that the formidable partnership of Audi and Schaeffler will continue for the next few years. We have already achieved a great deal, but the ever-increasing performance density of Formula E means we face huge challenges; therefore, the fact we are able to join forces and tackle the development of the Audi e-tron FE07 for the 2020/21 season is hugely significant.”
