Following another excellent  podium performance from Jaguar TCS Racing in Monaco, the team are on the hunt for more points and podiums in Berlin this weekend.

The historic Tempelhof circuit will host the third double-header of the season for rounds seven and eight of the 2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship where a haul of important world championship points await. The seventh round also marks the team’s 70th race in the all-electric series.

After a successful weekend in Monaco, where Mitch Evans secured pole position and a second placed podium finish, Jaguar TCS Racing sets its sights on more valuable points in Berlin as they continue to climb up the teams’ and drivers’ standings, closing the gap to the leaders. Mitch secured a podium in Berlin last August and will be looking to repeat that form this weekend.

A staple on the Formula E calendar, Berlin’s Tempelhof circuit takes place on the giant apron section of the airfield. With a famously abrasive surface, tyre management and car set-up are key to success in Berlin. The double-header is also the only E-Prix this season to see the track change direction from one day to the next.

The Jaguar I-TYPE 5 has shown impressive pace in recent races with Mitch Evans now sitting third in the drivers’ standings after three podiums in three races. Sam Bird suffered unfortunate damage after an early collision in Monaco, but his emphatic overtakes in recent races highlights the speed and efficiency of the Jaguar I-TYPE 5.


We’re looking forward to returning to Berlin’s Tempelhof circuit this weekend as we enter the busy middle phase of the Formula E calendar.. The whole team has worked extremely well to bring ourselves back into a strong championship position and we have the Jaguar I-TYPE 5 working well. We are in no doubt though that the competition is going to continue to ramp up to another level as the season progresses. Mitch, Sam and all the team are hugely motivated to keep scoring points and podiums and build our championship campaign. This season has shown just how competitive Formula E is and it is very difficult at this stage to make any assumptions. We will keep working hard and as a team and are looking forward to giving it our best shot in Berlin.

Monaco was another strong weekend for me and I’m delighted I could bring home another trophy for the team. That said, there is always room for improvement and I’m keen to build on the positive momentum. I secured a podium in Berlin last year and with only nine points between myself and the top of the driver standings, I’m determined to bring home another points haul this weekend.

Monaco was a challenging weekend for me but having raced in Formula E since its inception, I know it is important to look forward rather than back. The Tempelhof circuit is a key fixture on the Formula E calendar and one that we all know extremely well. A double-header means I have double the opportunities to deliver strong results for the team and score some valuable points. I’m ready for the challenge.

Sam Bird

While Formula E is used to racing in tight city centres, the Berlin circuit offers something quite different. Based in a vast open airfield, the championship has the freedom to create a completely different circuit to the rest of the calendar. The Tempelhof circuit provides wide, fast-flowing and sustained cornering. while the track surface is an abrasive concrete and pebble mix. This combination of high energy cornering and severe tarmac means tyre management and car set-up are critical for success. In addition, the concrete surface has been laid in multiple sections with small trenches between them. This regularly puts vibrations in the car which is quite unique to this event. The powertrain duty cycle is high and energy management is tough as a result. This is even more the case with the higher power levels seen in Season 8. There is a lot to think about for drivers and engineers alike but at Jaguar TCS Racing, we relish the challenge.

The Berlin Tempelhof circuit will host rounds seven and eight of the 2022 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship on Saturday 14 May (15:00 CEST) and Sunday 15 May (15:00 CEST).

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.
