Our
story
Driving the team
Our story
NIO has competed in the FIA ABB Formula E Championship since it was established in 2014 and secured the inaugural FIA Formula E Drivers’ Championship in July 2015.
Our Story
DRIVERS’ CHAMPION 2014/15
NIO returned for the 2015/16 season with a full-season campaign for Oliver Turvey, who made his Formula E debut in London. Turvey had a strong start to finish sixth but the team had a challenging season, struggling to find competitive performance. Improvements were made each race, but he was unable to retain his championship crown.
Performance
Born to Redefine

About Luca

Born in Savigliano, Italy (9th August 1985) Luca Filippi started racing in go-karts at the age of eight years old.

In 2002, he won the "Astra & AUTOSPRINT Search for Drivers" competition which led to a race seat in the MazdaMX-5 Cup. The following year he took part in Formula Renault 2000 and won the 2005 Italian Formula 3000 championship. At the end of the year Luca had the opportunity to drive with the Minardi F1 Team and began his GP2 Series career. A brief stint as Honda F1 test driver followed with Luca remaining in the role until the Japanese team retired from Formula 1™. He was the recipient of the prestigious “Casco D’Oro”, the Oscar of racing presented by AUTOSPRINT magazine, in 2011.

Combining GP2 duties and racing in the Auto GP Championship, both with Super Nova Racing Team, Luca then flew over the Atlantic to participate in the 2013 IndyCar series. His best result came in the Grand Prix of Toronto where he finished second with CFH Racing in 2015 before he joined Dayle Coyne Racing in 2016.

About Oliver

Oliver Turvey enjoyed a successful junior single-seater career with backing from the Racing Steps Foundation.

In 2006, he won the prestigious McLaren AUTOSPORT BRDC Award, which led to him making his Formula 1 test debut for the British team in 2009. He remains part of McLaren’s testing roster to this day.

In 2008, Turvey was runner-up to Jaime Alguersuari in British F3, which led to a season of Formula Renault 3.5, during which he won at Monaco. He was a winner in GP2 Asia and also competed in the GP2 main series. In 2012 he moved into GT racing with McLaren.

He currently races in Super GT and in sportscars in the LMP2 class and was the 2014 Le Mans 24 Hours class winner for Jota, following this up with a second place in 2015.

He joined the FIA Formula E Championship for the final round of the 2014/15 season in London, impressing on his first time out, and was then announced as a full time driver for NIO for the 2015/16 season. He got off to a great start with sixth overall at the season opener in Beijing and secured another two points-scoring finishes to place 14th in the driver standings.

About Ma

Ma Qing Hua was born on 25th December 1987 in Shanghai.

He is an ambassador for motorsport in China where he runs an academy for young drivers at his own karting circuit.

Ma made history by becoming the first Chinese-born driver to take part in a number of FIA Formula 1™ practices sessions with the HRT and Caterham teams.

As well as single-seaters Ma has also raced successfully in touring cars, winning the China Touring Car Championship 1600cc class drivers’ title in 2011. His greatest international success came in 2014 when he won round two of the FIA World Touring Car Championship in Moscow with Citroën, making him the first Chinese driver to win an FIA world championship event. Ma added to his touring car success the following season with a victory in Portugal and five further podium finishes to clinch fourth place in the 2015 WTCC.

Ma also competed in four FIA Formula E races with Team Aguri that year and joined the TECHEETAH squad for 2016-17. His new role for the coming season is with the NIO Formula E Team as Reserve Driver.
