Sheldon van der Linde and Enzo Fittipaldi complete a successful 2024 Berlin Formula E Rookie Test.

South African Sheldon van der Linde returned after three previous successful rookie tests for Jaguar TCS Racing. He finished the first session in P4, and the second session in P3.

The session, at the Tempelhof Airport, was Enzo’s Formula E debut, and the first time he has driven the Jaguar I-TYPE 6. He finished the first session in P13, and the second session in P6.

Sheldon van der Linde, Jaguar TCS Racing rookie driver: “Today was my fourth Rookie Test with the team, it’s always fun to be behind the wheel of the Jaguar I-TYPE 6. In the morning, I finished in P4, and in the afternoon I finished in P3, so ultimately a very successful day. We were also able to test a few things for the team, which hopefully will help Mitch and Nick fight for the World Championship as they head into the final six races of the season!”

Enzo Fittipaldi, Jaguar TCS Racing rookie driver: “This was the first time I’ve driven the Jaguar I-TYPE 6, not only that but the first time I’ve driven an electric car. It’s different from any other race cars I’ve driven, with a lot of complex systems to get your head around, but I really enjoyed the experience. My brother tested with Jaguar previously, so it was cool to follow in his footsteps and overall, it was very positive for myself and the team. Thank you Jaguar TCS Racing for having me on board and bringing me up to speed.”

Round 11 and 12 of the 2024 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship take place in Shanghai, China, on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May.
