|Whitley, UK, 14 May 2018: Panasonic Jaguar Racing are ready to come back fighting as they head to Berlin for the ninth E-Prix of the season and enter the final stages of the 2017/18 ABB Formula E Championship.
Following a tough weekend in Paris for the British team, both Mitch Evans and Nelson Piquet Jr. are determined to come back with renewed focus and determination in Berlin. The Jaguar I-TYPE 2 has proved its pace with consistently strong performances in both Free Practice sessions and Qualifying throughout the races to date.
Formula E returns to the Tempelhof Airport circuit for the third time. The circuit, at 2.37km long with 10 turns, has been specifically designed to showcase the efficiency of the Formula E racecars. In 2017, Mitch Evans walked away from the double-header weekend with the fastest lap on the first day of racing, and Panasonic Jaguar Racing are hopeful that they can replicate the pace with the improved Jaguar I-TYPE 2.
James Barclay, Team Director Panasonic Jaguar Racing: “Although we had a tough weekend in Paris, we know we still have more to prove. Both drivers, despite the issues we had, have demonstrated their speed and we head to Berlin with confidence.
“As we approach the final races of the season we’re happy with the progress we’ve made. Comparing our results from last year there has been a significant improvement and we hope to continue fighting and finish the season with more points.”
