  • Mitch Evans finished fourth for Jaguar TCS Racing in the eighth round of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship
  • Teammate Sam Bird finished nineteenth after he had to pit for a new front wing, following a collision
  • Mitch Evans moves to fifth in the drivers’ standings while Sam Bird is seventh
  • Jaguar TCS Racing remain third in the teams’ standings
  • The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will head to the iconic circuit in Monaco for the ninth round on 6 May 2023

Mitch Evans lined up P5 on the grid after successfully making it through to the qualifying Duels in damp conditions. He was defeated by the eventual pole sitter Robin Frijns, while teammate Sam Bird started in P11.

In another captivating and strategic race, around the 2.355km German circuit, Mitch held his position off-the-line for the first four laps. When the two ABT race cars and DS Penske’s ATTACK MODE strategies came into play, Mitch started to move up the order before taking the lead of the Berlin E-Prix on lap six. The team executed another strong energy management strategy which saw Mitch move between fourth and eighth for the majority of the race, making some impressive overtakes along the way. For the third race in a row, Mitch has demonstrated the pace of the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 and scored solid points for the team.

Sam was also in a competitive position, climbing his way through the field, but was unfortunately hit from behind and forced into the car in front, damaging his front wing. The Brit pitted for a new front nose but without a safety car, Sam was unable to catch the back of the field and finished nineteenth, out of the points.

The Jaguar customer team Envision Racing celebrated their first win of the partnership. Nick Cassidy’s win marked the third Jaguar-powered win in a row this season.

Jaguar TCS Racing remain third in the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship teams’ standings.


We had another strong race here in Berlin today. After making history yesterday with our first 1-2 since 1991, this was a race that ultimately could have gone our way, in the end we narrowly missed out on the podium. Mitch drove a fantastic and composed race to secure fourth place and score really strong points for the team. The race was about track position at the right time, and it didn’t quite work out today in terms of the podium. Sam was very unlucky to be hit from the rear, which propelled him into the car in front and damaged his wing. It's hugely frustrating when someone else’s mistake hinders the result and what was potentially a double points finish. In summary though it’s been a very good weekend for the team here in Berlin. We have been fast and efficient on all race tracks this season and this bodes well for the rest of the season. We will now work very hard to repeat the speed and efficiency in Monaco.

Overall it’s been a really great weekend but I do feel like we missed out on a podium today. The Jaguar I-TYPE 6 has the pace and efficiency but I didn’t get to the front of the pack when I needed to. I’ve collected more solid points for my championship campaign and I’m looking forward to my home race in Monaco.

Today wasn’t my day. Unfortunately someone went into the back of my Jaguar I-TYPE 6 which forced me into the car in front and it damaged my front wing. It’s disappointing as it’s not a mistake that I or the team made but it was out of our hands. Overall, we’ve had a great weekend as a team and I’m really proud of everyone. I’m looking forward to fighting for more points in Monaco.”

The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will head to the iconic street circuit in the Principality of Monaco for the ninth round on 6 May 2023.

Notes to Editors


Jaguar returned to racing in October 2016, becoming the first luxury manufacturer to join the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship street racing series. In season eight, Mitch Evans finished as runner-up in the drivers’ standings – his most successful result in Jaguar TCS Racing’s Formula E campaign.

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’s 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.

2023 is the first year for the teams to be racing with the Gen3 car, the world’s first net zero race car.

As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Jaguar TCS Racing designs its own powertrain, which includes the motor, transmission, inverter, and rear suspension. Jaguar, via its long-term Formula E technical partner Williams Advanced Engineering, will supply Envision Racing with its powertrain for the Gen3 era.

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 efficient and lightweight electric vehicle powertrains which will improve the performance and range of future Jaguar Land Rover electric vehicles.

Teams have two race cars, 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 2023 championship takes place on temporary street circuits in the centre of the world’s major cities including Mexico City, Diriyah and Rome, with new locations including Hyderabad, Cape Town, and São Paulo. The season finale plays out across a double-header race weekend in London.

In 2022, Jaguar TCS Racing finished fourth in the teams' standings with seven podiums, four wins, one pole position, one fastest lap and 231 points scored – the team’s biggest points haul to date. New Zealander, Mitch Evans finished last season as runner-up with Sam Bird finishing thirteenth overall in the drivers’ standings.

Formula E remains a key priority for Jaguar Land Rover and the company’s Reimagine strategy. As the premier 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 clients.

Through our Race to Inspire mission, Jaguar TCS Racing are committed to inspiring the future generation by using the race programme to create a positive impact on our planet and the communities in which we race. From competing in the world’s first net carbon race car to supporting and training the next generation of engineers and motorsport professionals.
