The Jaguar R1 was the chassis with which the Jaguar Racing Formula One team competed in the 2000 Formula One season, and the first Jaguar-badged car after Ford's purchase of the Stewart team the previous year.
The Jaguar R1 was lower than its predecessor, the Stewart SF03, because of the V10 Cosworth engine which had a low center of gravity. The relatively conventional car also had a aluminum gearbox which proved to be very unreliable. After a disastrous start to the championship, the R1 was completely revised by Anderson, the nose of the car was lowered while the baffles are installed on the pontoons to improve support.

The car proved largely disappointing, despite flashes of promise. It generally proved difficult to drive and suffered from an unreliable gearbox. Eddie Irvine, the 1999 championship runner-up, could only score 4 points, placing the team ninth overall in the Constructors' Championship.
