The R2 was the second F1 car constructed by Jaguar for its second season in the Championship. Chief designer Steve Nichols did not redesign the car significantly, focusing on more reliability and aerodynamic changes mandated by new wings regulations. The season started with Eddie Irvine and Luciano Burti in the cockpits of R2, but Brazilian was replaced by Pedro de la Rosa after only four Grand Prix. Spanish driver achieved 2 finishes in the points and was classified on 16th position in the Drivers’ Championship.
