Nelson Piquet Jr. left Jaguar Formula E team

Nelson Piquet Jr. has left Panasonic Jaguar Racing by mutual agreement and is being replaced by Alex Lynn for the remainder of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship season.

Piquet, who was the first Formula E champion in 2014-15, drove his final race with the team last weekend in Sanya where he retired with accident damage. It was the third consecutive race in which he crashed.

The Brazilian scored just seven points in his last 13 Formula E races with Jaguar after a strong start last season where he took fourth-place finishes in Hong Kong on his debut and in Marrakesh and Mexico City. “Following discussions after Sanya, Nelson and ourselves have reflected on the position of the team,” said team director James Barclay. “Regrettably, it has been agreed that he will leave Panasonic Jaguar Racing and take up other opportunities he has been offered. “We made a big step forward when Nelson joined us in Season 4, and he achieved some strong results for the team, but recent results have not met his or the team’s expectations.

“We want to take this opportunity to thank Nelson for all the hard work he has put in since joining us ahead of Season Four; he has contributed a significant amount into the development of the car and we wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Jaguar-Piquet Split Inevitable
Speaking before Saturday’s Sanya E-Prix, Jaguar team director James Barclay told e-racing365 that Piquet needed results quickly. “It’s important that we do start to see those improvements because we still have half a season left and we need to maximize the second half of the campaign,” he explained.

After Piquet crashed out of the Sanya race while trying to fight his way back through from the rear of the grid, it seemed inevitable that a change would be made in the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team. The British squad has been a peripheral player so far in Season 5 with Mitch Evans’ fourth place at the season opener in Saudi Arabia being the highlight.

The team has been public in its need to improve its qualifying performance, having only reached Super Pole on one occasion so far this year. The average starting position for each driver currently stands at 12th for Evans and 15th for Piquet.
