After making history with back-to-back victories in Rome, Jaguar TCS Racing set their sights on more podiums and points in round six of the 2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

For the second time in its history, Formula E will race the full grand prix layout of the iconic Monte Carlo circuit. At 3.28km long, the fast and famous circuit provides plenty of opportunities for overtaking and has proven successful for both Mitch Evans and Sam Bird who scored a podium and valuable points last year.

Mitch Evans and Jaguar TCS Racing’s dominant results in Rome shows the performance of the Jaguar I-TYPE 5 and the team are determined to capitalise on the positive momentum as the battle for the championship title continues to heat up.

Monaco is a truly iconic circuit and certainly a team and fan favourite. It is a race everyone wants to win and after our performance in Rome, the team is motivated to build on that momentum on the streets of the Principality. We’re are in no doubt about the quality of the competition though and we are very realistic, there are going to be a number of teams and drivers that will be fighting for the podium. It is all to play for though and we are relishing the challenge.

Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal

Rome was such an incredible weekend for me. The team gave me a rapid race car and my championship is back on track. Formula E is incredibly competitive, and anything can happen so I know I need to deliver the same precision here in Monaco. With no race in New Zealand, Monaco is the closest to a home race for me so it feels even more special to race here and after a podium last year I want to reach the top step.

Monaco is a really special Formula E circuit, and certainly one of the most iconic, so I’m excited to be back again this weekend. There are plenty of opportunities to overtake and with the incredible pace we’ve seen in our Jaguar I-TYPE 5, we’ve got a great chance for another strong race.

Sam Bird
Jaguar TCS Racing driver #10

There is no denying that the Monaco location gives the race track an absolutely fantastic back drop. There is always an added layer of excitement in the Monaco race paddock. Although the circuit layout looks tight and twisty for many racing series, it is relatively wide and has some fast-cornering sections in comparative Formula E terms. Also, perhaps surprisingly for a street circuit, the tarmac is beautifully smooth and there are several opportunities for Formula E cars to overtake around the lap. From a performance-chasing point of view, given several different corner types, it is quite a technical challenge for the drivers and engineers to set the car up. Likewise with a long uphill sector, good energy management in the race is also critical for success around the streets of the Principality.

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 season seven Jaguar TCS Racing finished runners-up in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship teams’ standings - the most successful so far in Jaguar TCS Racing’s Formula E history.

Formula E is a real-world test bed for Jaguar with its journey to becoming an all-electric luxury brand from 2025. Jaguar TCS Racing will deliver new sustainable technologies and set new benchmarks in quality in support of Jaguar Land Rover’s Reimagine strategy.

Jaguar TCS Racing goal is to ‘Reimagine Racing’ and together the team will test, develop, learn and collaborate, sharing insights across Jaguar Land Rover which will benefit future road car development. Specifically, learnings and technology transfer from Formula E will help ‘Reimagine” the Jaguar brand coinciding with the company’s commitment to the Gen3 era of Formula E.

As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Jaguar TCS 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 eleven 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.

The 2021/22 Formula E season is the second season of World Championship status as granted by the FIA – the sport’s governing body. It will be the fourth and final year for the teams to be racing with the futuristic Gen2 race cars.

Teams have two race cars, one per driver, which will be used for the full race distance of 45 minutes plus 1 lap.

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, Mexico City, Rome, Monaco, New York, London and ending in a double-header race weekend in Seoul.  

New Zealander, Mitch Evans finished season seven fourth in the drivers' championship and Jaguar TCS Racing finished second in the teams' standings - the most successful so far in Jaguar TCS Racing’s Formula E history - with eight podiums, two wins, one pole position and 177 points scored. After his first season with the team, Briton, Sam Bird finished sixth in the championship with two wins, three podiums and a pole position

Race to Innovate

Formula E remains a key priority for Jaguar Land Rover and the company’s Reimagine strategy. As the only all-electric world championship, Formula E allows us to test and develop new electric vehicle technologies in a high-performance environment. It continues to be the test-bed for our Race to Innovate mission that will see Race to Road and Road to Race learnings that will help shape our electric future – a future that Jaguar is passionate about, and dedicated to for the benefit of our society, the changing landscape of mobility, sustainability and our customers.
