  • Panasonic Jaguar #racing focus on unlocking full potential of the Jaguar I-TYPE 3 and securing valuable points

  • Round six of ABB FIA Formula E championship heads to the city of Sanya on Hainan Island, China

  • Inaugural Sanya E-Prix takes place on Saturday 23 March 2019

I am looking forward to my first visit to Sanya and Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s first race in mainland China. We managed to salvage some good points in Hong Kong and I enjoyed #racing through the field and climbing up ten places. The Sanya track will be a new challenge for all the teams and drivers in Formula E. With my engineers we will be focused on unlocking our qualifying potential which will put us in a good place on the grid to challenge for a strong result.

I would be lying if I said I didn’t leave Hong Kong frustrated. As a #racing driver, all I want to do is get behind the wheel and drive flat out. This just gives me even more motivation to make amends in Sanya. It will be the first time Formula E has a race on Hainan Island and I’m looking forward to seeing the new track. This provides a great opportunity to start afresh and put in a good performance.

Qualifying is the key component of our race weekend that we are looking to improve on. We know the Jaguar I-TYPE 3 has competitive race pace. We need to start further up the grid to maximise our potential. If we can do this both drivers stand a chance of delivering the results that we know we are capable of. Sanya will host its first Formula E race and the circuit looks set to be a fast one, which will suit the team, so we are all excited to get back on the track and put the lessons learnt from the previous races into practice. We can rely on fantastic support from the Chinese fans and the Jaguar China family.
