- Reserve driver Tom Blomqvist to replace James Calado for final two races in Berlin
- James Calado unable to complete the season due to WEC clash
- Lights go green for the Berlin E-Prix at 19:00 local time (CET) on 12 and 13 August
Calado is unable to complete the season due to a clash with his FIA World Endurance Championship racing which is a result of the rescheduled motorsport calendar heavily affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. British-Swedish driver Blomqvist previously drove for the Andretti Formula E team in 2018 and will make his debut for Panasonic Jaguar Racing.
I would like to thank James for everything he has done for the team this year under incredibly difficult circumstances. He is the such a professional driver and I would like to wish him well in Spa this week in his fight for the World Endurance Championship.
“Tom has arrived in Berlin having supported the team over the last week back in the UK at our team base. He has a tough job ahead of him, but he is really up for the challenge. His previous Formula E experience and knowledge will stand him in good stead. The whole team look forward to seeing him on track on Wednesday and Thursday.
Panasonic Jaguar Racing Team Director
I am excited to get behind the wheel of the Jaguar I-TYPE 4 for the last couple of races. It will be a new layout for those races and a fresh opportunity for everyone. I am looking forward to making my return to Formula E and want to deliver my very best for Mitch and the team.
