2024 ABB FIA FORMULA E WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

Following Jaguar TCS Racing’s most successful double-header weekend in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, they remain top of the Teams’ World Championship with 237 points, a 54-point lead. In the drivers’ standings, Nick Cassidy is first with Mitch Evans in fifth.

The 2024 Shanghai E-Prix, which takes place around the 3.051km Shanghai International Circuit, marks a return to China for the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship after a gap of four seasons.

The Shanghai E-Prix is at 15:03 CST (BST +7 hours) on both Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May.

James Barclay, Managing Director, JLR Motorsport and Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal: “The Tempelhof Airport circuit in Berlin was the backdrop to a thrilling double-header which saw the team deliver our most successful weekend in Formula E, earning 65 points in the Teams’ World Championship. Jaguar TCS Racing currently lead with 237 points. For our drivers, Nick also had his most successful weekend in Formula E to date, and Mitch led both races and achieved impressive points finishes over the two races. There’s a lot to be proud of so far this season – but we’re focused on what is coming.

“We are excited to return to racing in China, a country that is incredibly important for Jaguar and has many new motorsport fans. This year, we’ll be competing at the Shanghai International Circuit, a track we know will create strong peloton style racing. We’re looking forward to the challenge that brings.”

Mitch Evans, Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #9: “I found Berlin challenging in that, despite being a front-runner across both races, I just missed out on securing podiums. I’m working closely with the team to be best prepared for the upcoming rounds in Shanghai. Returning to China will be a special moment for the team and there’s lots of excitement to be back there. I’m looking forward to seeing what I can achieve across the two days of racing, and am feeling more determined than ever.”  

Nick Cassidy, Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #37: “I had my most successful double-header weekend in Berlin, with two podiums and two fastest laps. The season now continues, and we know that in this sport nothing is guaranteed. So, in Shanghai I want to continue with that momentum to give me the best chance of remaining at the top of the leaderboard. A new track presents new challenges but I’m ready with the team to take them on.”
