James Barclay, Panasonic Jaguar Racing Team Director:
“We were strong believers in Formula E from the start and its increasing relevance. Jaguar decided to therefore be the first mover and lead from the front by entering Formula E as the first premium manufacturer. In what is now our 4th season in Formula E we said we’d be fighting for points, podiums and wins and that’s exactly what we’ve been delivering.
“We’re looking forward to going back to racing in August – one venue, six races, nine days, maximum pressure and winner takes all. The team is preparing to arrive at the race track ready to hit the ground running and be on our top form and ready to adapt to the challenges we will face with only a week of racing to decide the championship.”
Craig Wilson, Panasonic Jaguar Racing Race Director:
“It’s very unfortunate that season six has been curtailed as I genuinely believe we have a championship winning car and driver. We’re a benchmark team on so many levels. From where we were in the first season to now, we’ve managed to move ourselves into a place where we’re the front runners.
“With the recent announcement of six races to finish the season, we expect the track will change (with three different layouts) and we won’t be able to plan like we usually would. It’s going to really challenge the pre-event preparation as we won’t know what the track layouts will be. We’re also aware that damage control and limitation will be incredibly important to make sure all teams are still competing by race six. We believe we’re in a strong position in terms of the technical capability that we’ve built up and invested in over the last couple of years. This, combined with our drivers’ adaptability, should put us in a strong position when we head to Berlin in August.”
The new series, hosted by Amanda Stretton and Vernon Kay, will be a regular, insightful series fans can look forward to with new guests in each episode across Panasonic Jaguar Racing and the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY.
ABOUT PANASONIC JAGUAR RACING
Jaguar returned to racing in October 2016, becoming the first premium manufacturer to join the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship street racing series. In 2019 the team won the Rome E-Prix – Jaguar’s first international motorsport victory since 1991.
Formula E is a real world test bed for Jaguar to make fearless progress in the future of electrification.
As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Panasonic Jaguar Racing designs its own powertrain, which includes the motor, transmission, inverter and rear suspension. To control costs the carbon fibre chassis and battery are common components and the same for all twelve teams. This allows the focus to be on developing electric vehicle powertrains which are efficient and lightweight which will improve the performance and range of future Jaguar Land Rover electric vehicles.
This is the second year teams will be racing with the futuristic Generation 2 racecars. Teams have two racecars, one per driver, which will be used for the full race distance.
Beyond its all-electric concept, Formula E is unique in the world of motorsport for its choice of venues. The championship takes place on temporary street circuits in the centre of the world’s major cities.
