Whitley, United Kingdom – Jaguar Racing Formula E team return to the streets of Monte Carlo for the bi-annual Monaco E-Prix on Saturday 8 May 2021 and are eager – for the first time in Formula E history – to race on the full grand prix layout.
Jaguar Racing drivers Sam Bird and Mitch Evans will race on the full, fast and narrow street circuit – a challenge both drivers are thrilled to be taking on. Sam and Mitch have tasted success before when they were both on the podium together in the 2013 Monaco GP2 series race with Bird taking the victory on the day. Having previously scored points in Formula E races around the iconic Monégasque circuit, Bird and Evans aim to push for points in the 45 minute + 1 lap E-Prix.
After six races of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, Jaguar Racing are currently second in the teams’ championship just 23 points behind German rival team, Mercedes-EQ. Heading to Monaco, the British outfit are determined to place both Jaguar I-TYPE 5s back in the points.
New for the Monaco E-Prix, Jaguar Racing will be running the I-TYPE 5 with a livery update as partner, Castrol, unveils ‘Castrol ON’ branding. With a long-term partnership between Castrol and Jaguar Racing, Castrol ON is the official e-Fluids partner for the Jaguar Racing Formula E Team. Castrol ON is an advanced range of e-Fluids that have a critical role to play in the era of e-Mobility and the on-track performance of the team.
