Phil Charles was appointed Technical Manager for Jaguar Racing Formula E team in September 2017 after years of working with leading teams in other motorsport series including Formula One. Since joining Jaguar Racing, Phil has been responsible for managing the engineering and technical direction of the British team in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
Over the last four years Phil has overseen the growth of Jaguar Racing into a race winning team, thanks to the team’s first Formula E win at the Rome E-Prix in April 2019 – Jaguar’s first international motorsport victory since 1991. Since then – during season six - the team secured a pole position and podium in Santiago and a dominant win in Mexico City. Most recently at the opening 2021 season seven Formula E weekend the team also celebrated a podium with Mitch Evans and a victory with Sam Bird.
