With the experience of the first ever back-to-back Formula E races in Monaco and Paris behind them, Panasonic Jaguar Racing is now preparing for the new challenge of three consecutive double-headers over the next eight weeks. The upcoming Berlin ePrix has been a part of all three Formula E seasons to date.
The ten-turn, anti-clockwise track on the apron of the historic airport has been re-profiled since the inaugural race, promising faster racing and more overtaking opportunities. “The Berlin circuit has been really enjoyable on the simulator. It’s quite fast and I’m eager to get to the track and see the surface for myself.
With two races, we will all have more time to familiarise ourselves with the circuit and will have the opportunity to take learnings from the Saturday race into Sunday. It will be a busy weekend for the team but I know they are up for the challenge”, said Mitch Evans.
Team-mate Adam Carroll is also “looking forward to the new challenge of completing my first double-header in Berlin. It’s a format we will need to adapt to as all of the final races of the season will be like this. In terms of physically preparing for these races, I’ve been increasing my level of cardio and boxing in my workout which I’m really enjoying.”
“The Formula E cockpit is a uniquely busy place to be, with a lot to remember and to relay to the team in every session. Between practice, qualifying and the race, that’s eight sessions in 48 hours. It will come down to clear, calm communication with our engineers and precise feedback from Mitch and myself”, added the 34-year-old.
“One of the many unique aspects of each Formula E race weekend is that all the action takes place in one day. To complete two race days in a row will be very demanding. However, we are racers and double-headers offer more opportunities to gather important data and more laps of these terrific circuits in front of the passionate German fans”, stated Team Director James Barclay.
