How Jaguar got its teeth into Formula E's Gen3 development race

With Mercedes gone and DS moving teams, Jaguar has a big opportunity at the start of Formula E's Gen3 era. The technical challenges in understanding the new car have been vast, with senior figures James Barclay and Phil Charles outlining to Motorsport.com the pitfalls along the way

Jaguar chose not to launch its latest Formula E machinery - the I-Type 6 - in the environs of its base in Oxfordshire, nor at its automotive headquarters in Coventry. Instead, the Big Cat disrobed in the cutting-edge climes of East London, exposing itself to the Greenwich skyline within the dusky walls of the Magazine events building. It had its own new livery to match; teal was deemed passé after a few years on Jaguar's colour palette and has been replaced with white and gold on a carbon black canvas.

It's a refreshed and revitalised Jaguar; a team that hopes to have found its own cutting edge for the advent of the Gen3 era of the all-electric racing series. With each year that passes, Jaguar has inched ever closer to glory.
