An update from Sam


It’s been a while since we’ve updated the website, for which I apologise, but I’ve been very busy working hard with both Ferrari and Virgin preparing for WEC races and the forthcoming FE season, not to mention getting married to my soulmate, Hollie in Lake Como in August!

I was thrilled with our pace at the last WEC race at Fuji, but gutted that we lost a possible win due to contact with another car, leaving us with severe damage and several laps down.

But, the pace is there, and we hope to show it again in Shanghai on November 18, so watch out for us there.

Excited for Formula E. As you may have seen, Virgin Racing has teamed with Audi for Season 5, and our new powertrain should see us being very competitive.

I’ve a new team mate in Robin Frijns, and between us we hope to rack up loads of podiums!

I’ve parted company with my previous management team, thank you guys for your help in the past, but from now on you can contact me directly on

I’ll try and keep you updated with all my news as and when it happens, and let me know what else you’d like to see on the website or other social media.

Bye for now
