Envision Racing can confirm the departure of driver Nick Cassidy after three seasons with the team.
Cassidy, 28, joined Envision Racing prior to Season 7 of the championship, following a successful rookie test in Marrakesh, Morocco, in 2020.
In three subsequent seasons he completed 47 races for the Silverstone outfit, winning five times (adding a further seven podium finishes), claiming five pole positions, and amassing a total of 343 championship points.
The New Zealand driver enjoyed an impressive Season 9 campaign, finishing second in the Drivers’ Championship as he and teammate Sebastien Buemi delivered Envision Racing their first ever Teams’ World Championship.
“Looking back over these last three years I am really proud of what we achieved together,” Cassidy said.
“It’s been a whirlwind, it’s been a rollercoaster but ultimately an amazing time at Envision Racing. This season has been an incredible season and we were so close to doing everything perfectly – but I don’t want that to take away from all the wins and all the good times we had.
“To achieve so much in one season in Formula E is not really heard of and that means it was a special time – and I am so glad that I was able to share that with the team that gave me my chance in this championship. I will remember it all fondly.”

After claiming his first Formula E win at the 2022 New York E-Prix, Cassidy picked up four further wins in 2023; in Berlin, Monaco, Portland and London.
“Nick has enjoyed an amazing three years with Envision Racing,” said Sylvain Filippi, Envision Racing’s Managing Director and CTO.
“He has quickly gone from being a Formula E rookie to race winner, and was a huge factor in us winning the Teams’ World Championship title. This season in particular, Nick proved himself as one of the top talents in Formula E and nearly won the Drivers’ Championship.
“We wish him the best of luck for next season with our friends next door at Jaguar TCS Racing.”
“I would like to place on record our thanks to Nick Cassidy for the fantastic job he did during his three seasons with our team,” said Franz Jung, Chairman, Envision Racing and President AESC Europe.
“His progression from rookie to championship contender underlines why Envision Racing enjoys such a fantastic reputation on the Formula E grid – not just because of our consistent success on the track, but also because of our record of developing drivers to reach their potential.”
