London celebrations

“Running in London is an unforgettable experience” – Sam Bird

Sam Bird hope for home glory this weekend, as London E-Prix hosts the thirteen and fourteen rounds of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

Bird had a great weekend in New York last time out, where the British driver finished seventh and fifth respectively in the two races on the circuit. The Brit hopes to do even better this weekend, as Jaguar TCS Racing aim to close the gap to the leaders in the constructors’ championship.

It remains to be seen if Bird will help his teammate Mitch Evans throughout the weekend in London, with the Kiwi in the midst of a title fight.

Racing in London for Jaguar is an “unforgettable experience” for Bird, who is hoping for a “strong performance” this weekend.

“As a British driver, racing in London not far from where I grew up is an unforgettable experience, even more so with Jaguar TCS Racing, an iconic British team. The Jaguar I-TYPE 5 had incredible pace last time out in New York so I can’t wait to get back in the car and hopefully deliver another strong performance in front of the home crowd.

“I’m determined to close the gap to the top” – Mitch Evans

Mitch Evans aims to put pressure on Championship leader Stoffel Vandoorne this weekend at Excel Center. Evans performed well in New York last time out, managing to achieve his sixth podium finish of the season so far.

If Evans wants to stay in the title fight before the Seoul E-Prix, then he will probably have to add to his number of podiums this season. The weather seems to play a part this weekend, which will test the drivers as the circuit is indoors and outdoors.

As well as wanting to stay in the title fight, Evans is hoping for a strong home Grand Prix for the team.

“This season is incredibly tight and after a successful second race in New York, I am determined to close the gap to the top of the driver standings and hopefully get to the top step of the podium in our race. home.”
