History in Formula E
This season marks the fifth season for Jaguar Racing in the series, after having joined the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in Season 3. With a history in motorsport dating back to 1948, Jaguar’s entry into Formula E in 2016 was an opportunity to showcase its range of electric cars. It is also a platform for Jaguar to test, develop and refine the latest technology available to the next generation of Jaguar's all-electric cars. The team achieved its first victory at the Rome E-Prix in Season 5, when Mitch Evans took the chequered flag.
In Season 6, Mitch Evans finished seventh in the Drivers' Championship and Jaguar Racing finished seventh in the Teams' Standings with a win in Mexico City, a podium in Santiago and one pole position. He is joined for season seven by British driver Sam Bird, who has won a race in every season of Formula E.
