  • Nio left Formula E after the prior season's end and fully rebranded to ERT Formula E Team for 2024 after new investment.

Driver changes[change | change source]

Mid-season[change | change source]

McLaren driver Sam Bird sustained a hand injury in a crash during the opening practice session of the Monaco ePrix. He withdrew from the event and was replaced by McLaren reserve and development driver Taylor Barnard, who already drove for the team in the rookie practice session ahead of the Misano ePrix and became the youngest driver to start a race in Formula E. Bird's injury means he will also be forced to miss the Berlin E-Prix double-header, with Barnard continuing to deputize.

Multiple drivers will miss the Berlin E-Prix double-header because of a calendar clash with the FIA World Endurance Championship's 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps. Both Envision Racing drivers will prioritize their WEC commitments and will be replaced by GT driver Joel Eriksson, whose last Formula E race was for Dragon / Penske in the 2020–21 season, and Hitech Pulse-Eight Formula 2 driver Paul Aron. Mahindra Racing's Nyck de Vries will also miss Berlin to race in WEC, with the team instead fielding their reserve and development driver Jordan King. ABT CUPRA will also once again use the services of their reserve driver Kelvin van der Linde to replace Nico Müller.
