Ahead of Swiss E-Prix, Panasonic Jaguar Racing completed successful UK development tests and significant mileage to Formula E season six (2019-2020).
Formula E returns to Switzerland with the Julius Baer Swiss E-Prix Round 11 of ABB FIA Formula E Championship at a new location in the Swiss capital, Bern that will take place on Saturday 22 June 2019.
Mitch Evans, #20:
It’s always exciting to race on a new circuit but this makes the time with my engineers at the track before Saturday vital. I secured my first Formula E pole in Switzerland last year so I am aiming for another Super Pole run in Bern. We’ve been practising a lot in the sim, so I’m looking forward to getting out on track. I’ve had good pace in practice at the last few races, now I want to convert that pace back to podium finishes. With three races to go, I’m pushing to secure as many points as I can for the team.
Alex Lynn, #3:
Having a bit of extra time between races has been a great opportunity to spend more time with my engineers and in the sim. Berlin was mixed emotions for me – I qualified for Super Pole for the first time with the team, but a technical issue forced me to retire prematurely from the race. I’ll be looking to capitalise on that initial pace for the Swiss E-Prix and get back in the points for Panasonic Jaguar Racing.
James Barclay, Team Director, Panasonic Jaguar Racing:
We have repeatedly proven the pace of the Jaguar I-TYPE 3 – in Berlin that was in Free Practice for Mitch and in qualifying for Alex. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the result we wanted. For the last three races, we’ll be looking to convert that pace into points. We will be pushing for a double-points finish at every remaining race – and that starts in Bern.
In parallel, we are pleased with the progress made ahead of season six with the commencement of our development testing programme. We recently started track tests in the UK for next season’s car and powertrain and things are progressing well. Next season, with new teams joining, ABB FIA Formula E is going to be the most competitive season yet.
