All-Kiwi driver duo puts Jaguar in prime position to compete for the Formula E Constructors’ Championship

Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal James Barclay has expressed his belief that the signing of Nick Cassidy has elevated their prospects of securing the Formula E Constructors’ Championship. After narrowly missing out on the season nine crown, Jaguar is determined to clinch the title. Nick Cassidy, who joined Jaguar from Envision Racing, forms an exciting partnership with Mitch Evans, creating a formidable driver lineup.

Cassidy and Evans demonstrated their prowess in season nine, with both drivers finishing in the top three of the Drivers’ Championship. This pairing sets Jaguar apart as the only team with two top-five drivers from the previous season, making them strong contenders for the Constructors’ Championship in season ten.

Jaguar’s strong performance in season nine was nearly enough to secure the championship, but incidents involving their previous driver, Sam Bird, hampered their efforts. The addition of Nick Cassidy promises to reinforce the team’s championship ambitions. With two top-tier drivers, the pressure is high, and it’s crucial for Jaguar to manage potential intra-team competition to stay focused on their pursuit of glory.

When leading drivers compete for titles, tensions can arise, as seen in past rivalries like Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg at Mercedes. Properly managing their driver pairing is essential for Jaguar’s success in season ten, as it will determine whether the signing of Cassidy proves to be a brilliant move or a potential challenge.

The Formula E season is set to begin in Mexico City in January, and James Barclay is confident that Nick Cassidy’s addition will enhance the team’s pursuit of the Constructors’ Championship. The team is motivated and ready for the upcoming season, and the new addition, Cassidy, is expected to contribute to their championship objective.

Jaguar anticipates new challenges, including a race in Tokyo, which further solidifies Formula E’s status as a world championship and pinnacle of electric racing.
