Mitch Evans and Sam Bird will once again join forces at Jaguar TCS Racing, as they aim to claim the world title following a string of race wins and podiums in 2021.
New Zealander Mitch Evans made his ABB FIA Formula E Championship debut with Jaguar TCS Racing in 2016 when the British team returned to racing. Mitch was swiftly seen as one of the quickest drivers on the grid and in season five Mitch translated this into his first win for Jaguar TCS Racing at the Rome E-Prix in April 2019. In season six, Evans continued his success securing a pole position and podium in Santiago, a dominant victory in Mexico City and created a ‘desert storm’ in Marrakesh with a history-making, 18-overtake drive through the field.
Evans, who is based in Monaco, finished fourth in season seven of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship with five podiums, five Super Pole appearances and was fighting for the title up to the final day of the season.
British Racing Driver Sam Bird joined Jaguar TCS Racing ahead of season seven of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. Having raced in Formula E since its inception in 2014, Bird brings a wealth of experience to the team. The 34-year-old has competed in every Formula E race since the ground-breaking series started in 2014, securing 11 wins to date. Bird is the only driver to have won a race in every season of Formula E.
Bird, who is based in Dorset, England secured his first win for the Jaguar TCS Racing team in his debut weekend in Diriyah and went on to achieve a second win in New York City, from Pole position. The Brit finished season seven of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship sixth in the driver standings.
