Panasonic Jaguar Racing welcomes British driver Alex Lynn back to the team as Reserve and Test driver.

The 26 year old driver returns to Panasonic Jaguar Racing after racing seven times for the team during the 2018/19 ABB FIA Formula E Championship.

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, 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.

Notes to Editors


Jaguar returned to racing in October 2016, becoming the first premium manufacturer to join the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship street racing series. In 2019 the team won the Rome E-Prix – Jaguar’s first international motorsport victory since 1991.

Formula E is a real world test bed for Jaguar to make fearless progress in the future of electrification.

As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Panasonic Jaguar Racing designs its own powertrain, which includes the motor, transmission, inverter and rear suspension. To control costs the carbon fibre chassis and battery are common components and the same for all twelve teams. This allows the focus to be on developing electric vehicle powertrains which are efficient and lightweight which will improve the performance and range of future Jaguar Land Rover electric vehicles.

This is the second year teams will be racing with the futuristic Generation 2 racecars. Teams have two racecars, one per driver, which will be used for the full race distance.

Beyond its all-electric concept, Formula E is unique in the world of motorsport for its choice of venues. The championship takes place on temporary street circuits in the centre of the world’s major cities including Diriyah, Hong Kong, Sanya, Rome, Paris, New York and ending in a double-header race weekend in London.
