Robin Frijns’ second place finish in Diriyah on Saturday evening was a record-breaking one in Formula E, as Envision Racing became the first team in the sport to achieve 50 podium finishes.
Ever-present since the all-electric series debutted – albeit in various names and guises – Frijns’ assured run to the podium in the second of two races at Diriyah this week ensured the Silverstone outfit became the first team in history to bring up the half-century of finishes.
Fifty podiums in just 119 races is a testament to the dedication, hard work and expertise of all those involved with the team – the current world champions after emerging victorious at the end of Season 9.

A number of members of the team, including Managing Director & CTO Sylvain Filippi, have been involved from the very start.
“Very special indeed,” Filippi wrote on Twitter. “So proud of this team.”
Frijns’ podium-finish also kept the Green Machine’s finish streak alive; you have to go back to last year’s Indonesian E-Prix at the start of June to find the last time the team has not finished in the top-three at least once at a race meeting.
