Links to Formula E
F2 and Formula E are fairly well linked despite the former's deep-rooted connections to Formula One and traditional motorsport series. Indeed, the majority of drivers to have raced in FE have competed in F2/GP2 Series in their development years, although only two F2/GP2 Champions have driven in FE. Furthermore, three time FE Champions e.Dams are a sister team of multiple GP2/F2 Champions DAMS, while the two series also share a mutual chassis manufacturer in the form of Dallara.
All drivers whom have competed in both Formula E and Formula Two are listed below:
|Formula E & Formula 2/GP2 Series Drivers|

Teams and Personnel
The most successful FE team in the series short history, e.Dams, are a branch of the DAMS racing squad, which has three GP2/F2 Teams' Championships to its name. Furthermore, a large number of former GP2/F2 staff have worked in FE, while a number of current and former GP2/F2 drivers such as Antonio Fuoco have tested an FE car.
Spark Racing Technologies' chassis and design partner Dallara are well known as the sole chassis supplier for the GP2/F2 Championship, with both series using the new Halo cockpit protection device as of 2018/19.
