Jaguar Racing Driver
British Racing Driver Sam Bird joined Jaguar Racing ahead of season seven of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. Having raced in the Championship since its inception in 2014, Bird brings a wealth of experience to the team.
The 33-year-old has competed in every Formula E race since the ground-breaking series started in 2014, securing nine wins to date. Bird is the only driver to have won a race in each season.
Bird, who started his successful racing career in 2002, went on to forge a successful record of results in the sport’s junior categories before a number of key Formula 1 roles including testing duties for Williams and reserve driver for Mercedes AMG Petronas from 2011 to 2013. In recent years Bird has tasted success in the FIA World Endurance Championship with Ferrari and the G-Drive Racing squad.
Bird, who is based in Dorset, England secured his best overall finish of third in the 2017/18 ABB FIA Formula E season and is looking forward to fighting for points, podiums and wins for the Jaguar Racing team this season.
