Lynn returns to Jaguar as a reserve driver

Alex Lynn has returned to the Jaguar Formula E team after racing in seven races in the 2018-19 season or the British squad, but he will serve as the team’s reserve and test driver.

Jaguar will need a replacement driver for this season’s Sanya FE round as James Calado will miss the event to race for Ferrari in the clashing World Endurance Championship round at Sebring

But Lynn is unlikely to automatically replace Calado due to his own WEC GTE commitments with Aston Martin.

A Jaguar statement said Lynn will “dovetail his commitments with Jaguar Racing this year by competing in the World Endurance Championship”.

Lynn is still delighted to still be associated with the team, as the Brit looks to find a way back into the series in the near future.

“I am excited to be rejoining the Jaguar Racing team and returning to Formula E,” said Lynn.

“I am familiar with the championship, the team, their goals and how they work. I look forward to playing my part in helping the team achieve its objectives.”

Jaguar team principal James Barclay added: “Mitch Evans and James Calado are an exciting combination and they will be strongly supported by Alex throughout the season.

“Alex is not only a very talented and accomplished driver, but he also has valuable experience in Formula E and a great relationship with our team.

“That experience and relationship will be highly beneficial to our ongoing development.

“Winning races can only be achieved if you have a hard-working, talented team around you.

“Bringing Alex back into the fold helps us achieve that.”
