Following on from part three of our Formula E season review, in which we looked at the first four works entries. In this article, we preview the other three works squads.
Jaguar TCS Racing-
A team that underdelivered on last year’s car, Jaguar enter season nine with huge pressure from fans and its Tata board for them to win the title. The car seemed to be off the pace during testing with a P6 and a P18. Jaguar are the only team to retain their season eight line-up, with the high-flying Sam Bird and the perennial almost champion Mitch Evans. The team no doubt will be aiming for consistent wins with their I-Type 6 but as of testing this is looking unlikely.
TAG Huer Porsche Formula E team
Porsche enter season nine wondering where they are after testing both cars finished outside the top ten. This is a surprise as last season it was seen as Porsche would be title candidates this season. Joining them this season is Antonio Felix Da Costa, who partners against Pascal Wherlein. Hopefully testing doesn’t mean the 99X electric isn’t with the pack pace-wise when we get to Mexico, for round one.
Nissan Formula E team-
Nissan take full control of its team this year after partnering with E-DAMS since 2018. This shows huge backing from the Japanese marque, who haven’t delivered on its resource prowess. The team boasts an all new French line-up for this season in the returning driver Norman Nato and the young driver Sacha Fenestraz. The new Nissan E-force 04 has shown some promise, with Nato taking P7 overall. This should mean Nissan will be a consistent front running team.
