Jaguar Racing has confirmed the return of Alex Lynn as reserve and test driver for its Formula E team.

Lynn, 26, linked up with Jaguar in 2019 as a mid-season replacement for Nelson Piquet Jr, scoring 10 points in seven appearances.

Jaguar opted to replace Lynn with James Calado for the 2019-20 season, but the Briton remained close to the team, and has now been confirmed as its reserve for the remainder of the campaign in support of Calado and Mitch Evans.

"I am excited to be re-joining the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team and returning to Formula E," Lynn said.

"I am familiar with the Championship, the team, their goals and how they work. I look forward to playing my part in helping the team achieve their objectives."

Jaguar Formula E team boss James Barclay added: "Mitch Evans and James Calado are an exciting combination and they will be strongly supported by Alex throughout the season. Alex is not only a very talented and accomplished driver, he also has valuable experience in Formula E and a great relationship with our team.

"That experience and relationship will be highly beneficial to our ongoing development. Winning races can only be achieved if you have a hard working, talented team around you. Bringing Alex back into the fold helps us achieve that."

Lynn will balance the role with his racing commitments in the FIA World Endurance Championship, where he is part of Aston Martin Racing's full-season line-up in the GTE-Pro class.

Jaguar also confirmed that Ho-Pin Tung will continue his long-running association with the team as its global ambassador through 2020.
