Mahindra Racing will field an unchanged driver line-up of Nick Heidfeld and Felix Rosenqvist for the upcoming 2017-18 Formula E Championship season.

The driver pairing proved to be among the most competitive in last year’s field, helping the Indian team finish third overall in the Teams’ Championship standings.

Ex-F1 driver Heidfeld claimed five podium finishes to secure seventh overall in the Drivers’ Championship standings, while 2015 European F3 champion Rosenqvist starred by finishing third overall with three pole positions, a victory and four other podium finishes.

“I am proud to be part of Mahindra Racing where we have been going from strength to strength in Formula E,” Heidfeld said.

“It’s exactly where I want to be and I am delighted to extend my contract and commitment to target even more success. I am thrilled and can’t wait to compete in my M4Electro in this ever-improving championship.”

“I’m thrilled to be back for a second season in Formula E and to extend my relationship with Mahindra Racing,” added Rosenqvist.

“That was our mutual intention from the very beginning, and we’ve already completed a series of promising tests with the M4Electro in recent months.

“Moving into season four, I will draw on everything I learned in 2016/17 to try and lift us to the next level.

“It will be a massive challenge with stiff competition, but we have a solid foundation and are all fully-committed to taking the fight to the very best.”

The pair will return to competitive action at the season-opening Hong Kong ePrix double-header, which takes place on December 2 and 3.
