‘The competition’s fierce but we can do something special in Berlin,’ says Jaguar’s Sam Bird

Jaguar Racing’s Sam Bird might not have had the best time of it on home soil last time out, with a pair of DNFs to show for his efforts. Two DNFs for Bird followed, with a tough weekend telegraphed from the off, through little fault of his own as the 34-year-old got caught up in mid-pack contact in race one after a tough qualifying session. “In my opinion, I was taken out in race two which was tough to take. It was an important race in terms of exposure for Jaguar, with its first race at home in 17 years. We’ve been through all of that but at the end of the day, it offered the same amount of points as at every other race. So, there’s no reason why I can’t add to that tally. He’s closer now to the top than he was then, and in his first season with Jaguar, the Brit won’t pile the pressure on himself.
