This season sees Mitch Evans joined by British driver Sam Bird, who has competed in the all-electric championship since the beginning, as the duo look to achieve more podiums and race wins in the Jaguar I-Type 5.
Mitch started karting at the age of 6 and won the New Zealand Grand Prix at 16. He made his ABB FIA Formula E World Championship debut with Jaguar Racing in 2016 when the British team returned to racing.
In 2019 his hard work paid off with his first ever victory in Rome and Jaguar’s first international motorsport victory since 1991. This was followed up by two further podiums in Bern and New York which led to a top five finish in the driver standings. During the 19/20 season Mitch took a dominant victory in Mexico City, and pole position and a podium finish in Santiago.
British Racing Driver Sam Bird joined Jaguar Racing ahead of season 7 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. The 34-year-old has competed in every race since the ground-breaking series started in 2014, securing nine wins to date. Bird is the only driver to have won a race in each season.
