Biography

After returning to Formula E in 2018/19, Robin Frijns is now embarking on his fourth season with Envision Racing, again alongside Nick Cassidy. Together, the pair challenge for the Teams' title as privateers up against a wealth of manufacturers.

Frijns wasn’t born into racing. In-fact, it was a family friend who gave the Dutchman his first experience in a kart. After travelling to a few races and experiencing the smells and sounds of racing it became obvious to Frijns that he wanted to take racing up more competitively. He was given a quad bike to play with in the garden and was forever being told to get off it by his mother after ruining the garden, a young Frijns was getting the feel for driving.

He progressed through the single-seater ranks and won titles in a number of junior categories including Formula BMW Europe and Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup. He took the 2012 World Series by Renault 3.5 title at his first attempt, with the last driver to achieve such a feat being Robert Kubica in 2005.

The Dutch driver and GP2 race-winner has been recognised for his talent throughout his career testing for both Sauber and Red Bull Racing at the Formula 1 young driver test in Abu Dhabi.

In 2013, Frijns joined Sauber as its test driver, and took part in a partial season of GP2 picking up one victory and two podium finishes. Frijns later joined Caterham F1 as a test driver for 2014. Between then and now he has raced in Blancpain GT and, in 2018, the DTM series with Audi Sport.

After racing for Andretti in Formula E's 2015/16 and 2016/17 campaigns, Frijns made a comeback to the series with Envision Virgin Racing in 2018/19, taking the place of Alex Lynn.

Frijns rounded off an impressive campaign in fourth place in the standings, claiming his second win of Season 5 in New York finale, having taken to the top step in Paris in Round 8. For the 2019/20 season, Frijns once again piloted Envision Virgin Racing's Audi-powered Gen2 challenger alongside British driver Sam Bird and ended Season 7 on a high in Berlin with four Super Pole appearances and a pair of podiums on the way to 12th in the Drivers' table.

Frijns was a season-long pacesetter after podiums in Diriyah and Monaco but the Dutchman slipped to fourth in the Drivers' running at the last. Given how tight the competition was in 2020/21, though, that mean the wound up just 10 points shy of eventual winner Nyck de Vries (Mercedes-EQ).

For 2021/22 he returns with Envision Racing alongside Nick Cassidy, on the hunt for more silverware and possibly even a title challenge.
