After a strong performance in Buenos Aires, Jaguar is looking to continue their improvement in Mexico this Saturday.
The British team are the only team yet to score a point this season. Mitch Evans was running in the points for the majority of the race in Buenos Aires, but energy management issues stopped him from finishing in the points.
Evans qualified seventh for the Buenos Aires ePrix. The Kiwi driver has been happy with his progress this season and hopes he can score the team’s first points this season.
“It felt great to have such a positive weekend in Buenos Aires,” said Evans. “With each race, the whole process becomes smoother and more streamlined.
“We are progressing through our programme as planned, getting the first few races under our belts. Gathering important data and it’s great to learn from each race, whether on track or in the way we operate as a team,” said Evans.
Points is the target
Jaguar’s Team Principal James Barclay has been satisfied with the team’s performance so far this season and he is aiming to challenge for points again Mexico.
“We have learned so much in our first three races,” said Barclay. “We took a fantastic step forward to further optimise our qualifying performance in Buenos Aires. To narrowly miss out on our first points in just the third race of our debut season certainly, gives us reason to put everything into our Mexican ePrix.”
“Mexico will be another competitive challenge for us and we want to gain as much experience in our first year. We’re looking forward to gathering more valuable experience and race data in Mexico,” said Barclay.
Racing at 2,250m above sea level, the team will face their toughest physical challenge of their debut season to date. It will be interesting to see if the British team can use what they have learnt in their first three races to score points in Mexico.
