"It seems like ages since the last time out, racing in Berlin. We’ve done some testing with the new car since then and it was real nice to get back behind the wheel but nothing can come close to the feeling of going up against the best in the field."

Formel Renault 2.0 Eurocup Champion, Formula 1 Driver and Coffee Lover: The international belgian goes into his third Formula E season. 

Finishing strong by winning the last race of season 6, he is ready for season 7.

“I am honestly delighted to be able to contest a second season in Formula E with the team. We had a strong debut season together, although it was a bit of a strange year, in which Covid-19 changed everything."

In his maiden season in Formula E, Nyck got quickly up to speed and secured his first podium in the last race at the Tempelhofer field in Berrlin.

With Stoffel he is forming a dynamic duo on the race track for season 7.

“At Mercedes-Benz, we can look back on 125 years in motor racing. However, we know that Formula E is very different from any other series we have ever competed in. We are doing everything we can to achieve success, but we know that we have a steep learning curve ahead of us.”

Leading the crew is our team principal Ian James. With over 15 years of experience, the Englishman knows his way around the world of motorsports and is up for the challenges of Formula E.

We join the call for diversity.

“We have always spoken out clearly against racism and all forms of discrimination, as they do not have a place in our team, in our sport or in our society”, says Ian James.

We will contest the season’s last six races with an all-black base livery. The slogan ‘End Racism’ will be prominently displayed on the halos of the cars driven by Stoffel  and Nyck.

Ian James: “The work towards building a more sustainable team doesn’t end with having achieved this three-star status; we are committed to follow this path in 2021 and beyond, implementing ideas that make a difference”
