The Jaguar Racing Motor Generator Unit (MGU) is based on the team's learnings from season 6 with the Gen 2 car. During development and testing the team focused on making the MGU lighter and more efficient to further improve the overall performance of the I-TYPE.
The new, extreme look isn't purely for aesthetics. The I-TYPE 5 has been specifically designed to increase the down force, courtesy of its large diffuser to offer superior grip even when closely following another car. Another prominent feature is the new FIA Halo head protection device, with its innovative LED light strip. When the lighting on the Halo glows blue, the car and driver are in Attack Mode. The Halo glows magenta when the driver has activated FanBoost, allowing fans to easily follow the strategy of their favourite team or driver.
