Jaguar – “We’re in a great position” going into finale

Jaguar are raring to get going for the Berlin finale to Formula E’s season 6 which takes place later this week.

Mitch Evans sits second in the driver’s championship, with the team in third place making it Jaguar’s most successful season to date so far.

Team Principal James Barclay was very confident: “We’re going into the final six races in Berlin in a great position.

“Whilst it’s going to be an intense challenge for all of the team to complete six races in nine days we are looking forward to it and feeling positive that we are ready to give it our all to fight for the drivers title with Mitch and achieve our best result to date in the team standings.

“Our season six objective was to compete for more points, podiums and wins and so far, we’ve done just that.

“It’s been a long break in the season, but we are hungry to pick up where we left off and finish the season successfully.

“The whole team has been working incredibly hard during lockdown to ensure that we maintain our positive momentum.

“We never underestimate the quality of our competition in Formula E though and the challenge that the team and the drivers will face in Berlin but we are fully prepared and ready to give it our all.

“It’s ultimately within reach so we will be doing our all to achieve our goals together.”

Jaguar’s lead driver Mitch Evans is only 11 points behind championship leader, DS Techeetah’s, Antonio Felix Da Costa, after Da Costa’s win in Marrakech to Evans’ sixth place. He is also very positive going into the finale weeks.

“This season we’ve tasted success and I am really proud of my performance, particularly in the last three races.” commented Evans.

“We achieved Super Pole and a Podium in Santiago, we won in Mexico City and we made history in Marrakesh by gaining 18 places and finishing P6 after starting from the back of the grid.

“Being second in the drivers’ championship puts me in a good position heading into Berlin but I know I can’t underestimate the challenge that we have ahead.

“Our car is incredibly quick so I’m hoping to show everyone that we can be in the fight by 13 August.”

Formula E returns on Wednesday with the first Berlin E-Prix at 19:00 local time, 18:00 UK time.
