Cassidy Joins Jaguar TCS Racing on Multi-Year Contract for 2024

Cassidy’s market worth has climbed significantly since his debut with Envision in season seven, with the 28-year-old claiming four victories in 43 starts for the Jaguar customer squad.

However, his performance this season has piqued Jaguar’s interest since three of his four victories in the all-electric series have come in the past five races. Cassidy’s victories in Berlin, Monaco, and, most recently, Portland have propelled him into championship contention.

Cassidy momentarily led the standings after his miraculous Monaco victory, only to fall back to third after a dismal weekend in Jakarta. Despite this, Cassidy enters the Rome E-Prix second in the Drivers’ Championship, only a point behind leader Jake Dennis.

While Cassidy hasn’t been particularly great in qualifying this season, overall, his mental alertness and cunning in-race strategy have been, in many ways, unmatched. The controversial peloton-style racing that has dominated the start of the Gen3 era has been mastered by the Envision driver this season.

After a slow start to the season, Cassidy has been remarkably consistent. He has finished on the podium in six of his last nine races. This season, only Dennis has been more podiums than Cassidy. Because of this, the Andretti driver is going to Rome with a slight lead over Cassidy in the rankings.

His transfer to Jaguar gives the Coventry-based team one of the best combinations on the grid and increases their chances of winning their first Constructors’ Championship. The factory team is presently third in the standings, but 47 points behind Porsche, owing primarily to Bird’s recent poor performance.

Cassidy Replaced Sam Bird at Envision Racing for 2023

This season, Cassidy has upped his game and was the runner-up to Mitch Evans in the Drivers’ Championship after Envision Racing’s Sam Bird decided to step down at the end of this year. He had been a part of the team since season seven but will now be replaced by Cassidy.

Cassidy’s multi-year contract with Jaguar is set to commence on January 1, 2024. His move has created an excellent opportunity for an all-Kiwi pairing that could dominate Formula E over the coming years. With both drivers being highly successful in their own right, it will be interesting to see what sort of competitive advantage they can create between them.
