Formula E is tough. Jaguar knew that, and duly played down expectations ahead of its debut last month. But perhaps the reality of how tough its return to major international motorsport is going to be is now sinking in. Two races into the electric single-seater series' 2016/17 season, the British manufacturer looks a fair way from scoring its first points.
Jaguar knew it wasn't going to set the world alight this season, even though there are plenty who think ample resources and a tie-up with Williams Advanced Engineering - the series' spec battery supplier - mean it should be making a more immediate impact. There's no denying both those elements will be advantageous, but it's more likely to be impactful in the long-term.
In the short-term, Jaguar's introduction to FE has been underwhelming. A best qualifying result of 14th (1.3 seconds off the pace) and race result of 12th (43s off the winner) - both of which came on its debut in Hong Kong - leave a lot to be desired.
