Jaguar’s entry into Formula E is arguably the biggest thing to happen to the championship yet as the series enters its third season.
Riding the crest of international success in the road car market, Jaguar's entry into Formula E as it readies its electric vehicle range has kicked off what looks to be an avalanche of large manufacturers ready to enter Formula E.
It’s very likely that this original equipment manufacturer (OEM) influx into Formula E will also usher in a new fanbase, as brand fans from across the world tune in (me included) as the all-electric race series comes into its own.
Jaguar’s Mitch Evans and Adam Carroll rose up the order throughout the race through the first half behind the dominance of NextEV driver Nelson Piquet Jr. Ahead of the car changes. the two Jaguar drivers looked almost certain to climb into a podium position.
Eking out every last percentage of power, Carroll and Evans took it down to their last two percent of power before swapping, but Evans never re-emerged, with his second car suffering from an electrical issue. Meanwhile, Carroll had climbed two places over the course of the race to finish twelfth.
