Read Time:2 Minute, 14 Second

Jaguar TCS Racing currently lead the Teams’ Championship on 78 points, with drivers Nick Cassidy and Mitch Evans first and fifth respectively in the drivers’ standings.

The 2024 São Paulo E-Prix will start at 14:03 local time (GMT – 3 hours).

James Barclay, Managing Director, JLR Motorsport and Jaguar TCS Racing Team Principal: “Heading into São Paulo we are in a great position, top of both the Teams’ and the Drivers’ World Championship standings. It has been a very positive beginning to the 2024 season but in this extremely competitive world championship we very much realise that this is only the start. We have taken a lot of positives and motivation from the first three races but also have been able to use the break in the race calendar to regroup and dissect our learnings as we prepare for our return to the track in Brazil.

“São Paulo is a wonderful city and circuit, it holds very fond memories for us as a team. Last year finishing first and third, with all three podium positions occupied by Jaguar powertrains, was a key milestone for us all. Celebrating with the Brazilian fans who love their motorsport was also incredible. We have seen how competitive this season is shaping up to be and we know it’s going to be very close across all teams and drivers, but we are approaching the race with optimism and will be doing our best to fight for points and podiums.”

Mitch Evans, Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #9: “São Paulo was my first win of 2023 and a turning point in the season for when we really started building momentum as a team. The track flows really nicely and is great street circuit. The Brazilian fans always create a fantastic atmosphere too. São Paulo will be a great opportunity for me to gain more crucial points for the team and close the gap in the Drivers’ Championship.”

Nick Cassidy, Jaguar TCS Racing driver, #37: “I’ve had a dream start to Season 10, three podiums in three races. As we know, this championship can be very unpredictable, but I’m looking to maintain my strong form.

“Last season I finished P2 in São Paulo behind Mitch. I know how the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 powertrain performs round this circuit, which gives me a lot of confidence heading into the weekend.”
