Back to white: Andretti unveils new Formula E livery for Valencia tests
The US team Andretti has presented its Formula E livery for the pre-season test for the upcoming 2023/24 season. The racing team of Michael Andretti and team boss Roger Griffiths is returning to a largely white livery, as was used in the first Formula E season ten years ago. The reason for this is the already reported withdrawal of title sponsor Avalanche, which was also responsible for the red livery of previous years.
Andretti fans will not have to say goodbye to the old colour entirely, however: The sidepods of the racing car will continue to shine in red, and there will also be a wide blue separating line between the two main colours. Seen from above, the letter A is thus indicated, similar to the new Andretti Global logo.
"Andretti Global is built on a foundation of racing excellence, and it’s been rewarding to see our history and success come together in such a seamless, visual way," said Michael Andretti, CEO and Chairman of Andretti Global. "The special Formula E livery we’re running in Valencia is a great representation of what we set out to achieve with this rebrand, and it’s fitting that the first time the Andretti Global brand will be on full display will be riding along with a reigning World Champion."
As the reigning Formula E world champion, Jake Dennis will drive the number 1 car next season. "I’ve always wanted to earn the right to use the No. 1 at some point in my career, and to do so for the first time in our new Andretti Global livery makes the moment even more special," said the Briton
The new livery will be seen live for the first time from next Tuesday, when pre-season testing gets underway in Valencia. Whether it will really give a preview of the Andretti design for the tenth Formula E season is currently unclear. Sponsor logos are completely missing on the design.
